Microsoft and Sony have always kept us guessing what the next thing would look like, and finally, they are here, and like always, they didn't disappoint.

PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X

Since the official release of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, another debate has engulfed video game enthusiasts; which one of them is better?

Well, we are not in a position to make your choice for you, but we will always endeavour to give you the specs and leave you to make the right choice.

But personally, we at BulevurGames will like to acknowledge the hard work of both companies (Microsoft and Sony) in shaping the evolution of video games worthwhile.

Below is some comprehensive analysis of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X specs, maybe this will enable you to make the best choice.

Difference Between PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X

Please note that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox series X comparison is never to downgrade any brand, instead of outline its unique features thus, help 'Gamers' make the best choice

PlayStation 5

It came with an 8 AMD Zen 2 CPU cores clocked at a different frequency of 3.5 GHz processor, with this feature, you can play any powerful game, especially the one with physical stimulations like Kerbal Space Program and its likes. In fact, with this type of CPU in place, it is goodbye to a slow procession of some gameplay.

The graphics are top-notch, it has a 10.28 teraflops, 36 CUs clocked at a different frequency of 2.23 GHz. You are expected to see nothing less than an ultra HD gaming picture that brings fort all the visual contents of any gameplay.

With a 16GB of GDDR6 SDRAM, a bit bigger than most of over PCs and probably one of the biggest RAM size you can find in any console game. The average RAM size of any console game is around 8GB, so you see, they gave you much more to explore.

Say 'Hi' to its 825GB SSD storage capacity. Yap, you heard that right: 825GB! With this, no player even has the right to complain about storage space. On a second note though, it also comes with an NVMe SSD slot Expandable Storage.

Your access to the internet is sure with its 5.5GB a second raw, and 8-9GB a second compressed I/O Throughput. Though there has been some few complains that it is not as fast as its Xbox counterpart, but we still regard it has one of the finest innovation from Sony.

Some of Other Specification Include:

An 8K Max Output Resolution.

120Hz Max Refresh Rate.

VR Support function.

Cloud Gaming (which is still unconfirmed as at the time of writing this article).

Backwards Compatibility.

Xbox Series X

Unlike PlayStation 5, the Xbox Series X comes with a more precise processor – X 8 AMD Zen 2 CPU cores clocked at 3.8 GHz.

Same goes for its graphics; it comes with 12.16 teraflops, 52 CUs clocked at 1.825 GHz.

The RAM size is the same as that of PlayStation 5, talking about its 16GB of GDDR6 SDRAM. 

Now, there is a little disparity here, some reviewers will claim that Xbox Series  2.4GB a second raw, 4.8GB a second compressed I/O Throughput is faster than PlayStations' despite having more size. Nevertheless, they both perform optimum optimally. 

Some of other Specification Include:

An 8K Max Output Resolution.

120Hz Max Refresh Rate 

A VR Support function.

Microsoft Project X Cloud Cloud Gaming.

Xbox, Xbox 360, and Xbox One Backwards Compatibility.

15.1 cm wide, 15.1 cm deep, 30.1 cm high in dimensions.


No matter which one you decide to go for, have in mind that you are getting an upgrade, because, from the look of things, Xbox Series X (for example) is much more powerful than Xbox One X, likewise PlayStation 5, it is twice as powerful than PlayStation 4 Pro.

Nevertheless, we are entitled to give our verdict, though you are always entitled to yours. From the survey we have conducted so far, Xbox Series X seems to be gaining the upper hand in terms of quality performance.

But all the same, the innovation they have brought into the industry is very much appreciated. You can always leave your thoughts on the comment section; we will be glad to hear your opinion. And don't forget to share.
