Sony revealed in April that the PlayStation 5 will use the latest AMD CPU and GPU technology. The PlayStation 5 is expected to be powerful. Full specs have not been revealed so we still did not know how powerful it’s going to be. However, it looks like this is about to change as the very first PS5 benchmark may have just leaked on Twitter. This benchmark is a courtesy of Tum_Apisak, who is well known by a PC community for leaking PC parts codes and benchmarks. He has access to a CPU and GPU database where benchmarks are being stored and this is how he stumbled upon a Gonzalo APU Fire Strike benchmark. Gonzalo is rumored to be a PS5 SoC and which was also leaked by Tum_Apisak. This is an engineering sample of the APU so the results are subject to change as usual with prototypes.
So let’s get to an actual benchmark numbers:
PS5’s Gonzalo APU scored above 20000 points which is very impressive. This is in perspective and compared to the top of the line PC graphics cards.
PS5’s Gonzalo APU seems to offer better performance than NVIDIA’s GTX 1080 which is very impressive for a console. GTX 1080 is still considered a top end GPU and capable of running a lot of games in Native 4K and 60 FPS. Console games are usually better optimized than it’s PC versions gamers are in for a treat next gen with these new consoles.
This is only one benchmark and performance in games will depend on the type of the game and game engine used. Still, this benchmark gives us a glimpse into what we should expect next year.
