In this article, we will compare the new versions of the two legendary Sony Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles based on feedback from users of the international Reddit networking platform.
On this site, people are happy to share their impressions of one product or another.
What to expect from Sony and Microsoft
The features of the new version of the xbox one reddit have improved significantly compared to the old version. For example, owners of the new console from Microsoft will be able to switch between players without closing them. Meaning that you can freely pause the game and go to another, but then go back to the first and continue from where you left off. And so you can run five games at once. The startup time has also changed, and now it is much more efficient.
PlayStation 5 is not lagging and has also done a great job on the loading speed of its games. One of the main features of the new version is 3D sound, which can even be played on TV speakers. Also, users are impressed with the SSD drive with write and read speeds of 5.5 GB/s.
The main differences
Let’s start with the benefits of the Xbox Series X. So, the main advantage in the direction of Microsoft developers is the high processor frequency, which is higher than the PS5. Also in terms of CPU frequency and graphics processor, Xbox Series X is well ahead of its competitor. Another plus is the high performance of 12 teraflops while PS5 has only 10.28 teraflops.
Next, let’s talk about the superiority of the PS5. SSD storage in this console is many times higher and, as mentioned above, is 5.5 GB/s, while the Xbox Series X numbers only reach 2.8 GB/s. And this is a significant advantage because the high speed of the SSD will instantly stream objects level in the game, and the level of detail in the game on such a console will be much higher.
In the new version of the console, Microsoft has decided to avoid the old mistakes and increased the number of internal studios, began to promote their product, and put more pressure on the gamer features. At the same time, PS5 was rather passive in this respect and did not present anything significant. Users concluded that the new PS5 will be weaker than the Xbox Series X, which means it loses both power and advertising.
The question of price is still unclear. The exact price of neither company is known. However, there is speculation that due to its wealth, Microsoft may initially lower the price of the product and sell it at a loss. But Sony PlayStation can also make such a move and it is really hard to say who will win in the battle of consoles.
