PlayStation 5 vs Xbox Series X: CPU Debate – Round 2: Variable Frequency

In previous articles RGN Analysis has been looking at the Teraflops performance range of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the next-generation game consoles coming out this Holiday 2020. This time around, we are looking at Mark Cerny’s claims of Variable Frequency and a dynamically changing power draw for the CPU / GPU of the PS5 using Proprietary ICs combined with AMD SmartShift.

In our new series RGN Today we cover a look at this day in gaming history, recent news topics, tech analysis, opinions, advice, and read all comments from our community as well as provide an uplifting story to finish each episode. Our latest episode’s RGN Analysis segment discusses the merits of Xbox Series X hardware engineering which allows for a traditional, PC Gaming-style, fixed frequency versus Sony’s attempt to change the industry by increasing throughput via their SSD but then restricting power flow to their CPU / GPU.

Check out today’s video for the full comparison, and be sure to stay tuned for more as next-gen rolls out! We will be getting ahold of all major hardware releases to test them out in full.

With the cancellation of Sony’s PS5 Reveal, no Nintendo Direct on the horizon, and EA’s no-show on a rumored Star Wars Project Maverick Reveal we have been left with not much in our hands, waiting, quite a few times the past couple of weeks. Tons of rumors and leaks dominated the airwaves, but there were still a few interesting news stories worth noting.
