Xbox Series X More Powerful Than PS5 – Latest Tech Analysis Says By How Much?

Underpowered PS5

Xbox Series X More Powerful Than PS5

Is the Xbox Series X more powerful than PS5? Quite probably and this latest technical analysis tells us that it’s not even close. Since the specs of the PS5 were announced, gamers have been wondering just how much more powerful the Xbox Series X would be. The raw power of the Xbox SeX is far greater than the PS5, though Sony says their overlocking speeds will minimize the differences.

According to the latest technical analysis from Notebookcheck, the Xbox SeX beats the PS5 by a whopping 30% margin. Until we get the actual consoles in hand to test properly, it’s hard to fully appreciate what this means. However, here are the relevant quotes from the outlet on why we would see this massive difference in the two warring consoles.

“Sony’s claim that high clockspeeds offset its meagre shader allocation on the PlayStation 5 doesn’t hold water when Navi overclocking results are factored in. Due to non-linear performance/clock scaling, the likely performance deficit between the two consoles is in the 25-30 percent range, which may have a major impact on 4K performance.”

I have no idea about the tech aspects of this, but the outlet seems to know their business here. This analysis is something I have seen echoed amongst more knowledgeable gamers. The basic power of the PS5 is just not up to the Xbox SeX, despite the super-fast SSD on the PS5. However, I do not expect this power gap to have a major impact on console sales.

Sure, some gamers go where the power is, but that is hardly the only factor. The gamers that have stuck with Sony through the PS3 and PS4 have an attachment to certain franchises. Most gamers also probably have a network of friends they play specific franchises with. Sony has more first-party game support than Xbox does also, though Xbox is trying to rectify that this gen.

Ultimately third-party games are likely to be far superior on Xbox SeX than they are PS5. A turnaround from the last generation where the PS4 was more powerful than the base model of the Xbox One.
