The race is on guys! Sony and Microsoft have been gearing up to reveal the next generation of consoles for some time. It seems that MS wants the leg up this year!
Earlier today we got an official Technical Specs sheet for the upcoming Series X. Boasting 12 tereaflops of GPU power, backwards compatibility, ray tracing and the ability to play at 120FPS.
For comparison, the rival upcoming PS5 has been leaked/confirmed to have 9 teraflops. The previous high end Xbox, the One X, had only 6 teraflops.
So if this remains accurate up to release, it seems that MS definitely have that leg up that they wanted from the beginning! With double the power, an increased focus on backwards compatibility and high end framrates.
While Sony will no doubt adjust their design decisions based on this technical list, MS has the lead.
