According to some speculations spread by TweakTown, some (anonymous) sources of the gaming industry are sure to say that the performance of PS5 will not differ too much from that of PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro.
It is, good to reiterate, simple conjectures and speculations not supported by real data: according to various publishers, Sony cannot afford to cut out the current 80 million owners of PS4 and PS4 Pro, hence the need to create a console with a very similar architecture, so PlayStation 5 may not represent a big evolutionary step in terms of power and performance.
According to some sources of the Financial Times, PS5 “instead will represent a natural evolution of PlayStation 4,” although under no circumstances should refer to the hardware, as services such as backward compatibility, repeatedly rumored and given almost for certain by insiders.
According to the rumors circulated until today, the next console of the Nintendo will be based on AMD Navi architecture, but it is possible that Sony can follow a path similar to that adopted by Microsoft, with Xbox Scarlett that should be fully compatible with the software of Xbox One and Xbox One X.
Earlier this week, the president of Sony Corporation told the Financial Times that “at this point, what I can say is it’s necessary to have a next-generation hardware,” without mentioning PlayStation 5 directly, it seems that the company is also working on a tablet made mainly for streaming, gaming and multimedia content.
