Gaijin Entertainment has bluntly stated that the PS4 GPU is 40% more powerful than the one in Xbox One. We already knew this for a long time but Microsoft had never confirmed the console’s GPU specs. Currently the PS4 GPU runs at 1.84 teraflops compared to the 1.3 teraflops of Xbox One GPU.
Anton Yudintsev told Edge in an interview that “obviously PlayStation 4 is more powerful than Xbox One,” and gave some details on how much the difference is.
“It depends what you’re doing. GPU, like 40 per cent more powerful. DDR5 is basically 50 per cent more powerful than DDR3, but the memory write is bigger on Xbox One so it depends on what you’re doing.”
Microsoft recently increased the GPU clock by 6% so that definitely reduces the performance difference a bit.
Most multiplatform games next-gen will most likely look better on the PS4 due to the horsepower on offer, but Xbox One’s cloud architecture is said to provide 10 times the power of Xbox One if utilized properly.
