Rumor: Xbox Two "Anaconda" vs PlayStation 5 Specs Comparison
It’s no secret that Sony and Microsoft are working on their own respective next-generation gaming consoles in preparation for the next console war. Sony has the PlayStation 5 (PS5), while Microsoft has the Xbox Two.
Who do you think will win the next console war? Will Sony once again continue to dominate console sales or will Microsoft be the winner? It’s hard to say, but there are some leaks regarding the specifications for the Xbox Two “Anaconda” (aka Xbox Anaconda) and PS5, shedding light on what tech enthusiasts can expect from the upcoming gaming consoles.
But Wait… What Is This Xbox “Anaconda”?
Last month, T3 published a report about two upcoming Xbox consoles. The console carrying the codename “Anaconda” will be the flagship console of Microsoft and serve as the replacement of the Xbox One X. The second console with the codename “Lockhart” will be an entry-level option or something like a replacement to the Xbox One S.
Microsoft’s Next-Gen Console
According to a report, a Reddit post was spotted featuring the supposed specs of the Xbox Anaconda. The post claims that the next-generation Xbox console will feature 8 core, 16 threads AMD Zen 2 CPU, and a costume 12 TFLOPs AMD Navi GPU.
In addition to that, the report also noted the Xbox Anaconda will feature a 1 TB NVMe SSD, making it at least 10 times faster than the Xbox One X. Furthermore, the next generation Xbox console will have 16GB of GDDR6 RAM, DirectX, and ray tracing, though the ray tracing may be toned down so that it can run on the Xbox Two “Anaconda”.
As for its price tag, it is rumored to be priced at $500. Do you think this price tag is too much? If we consider the price tag of the Xbox One X released in November 2017 which costs $499 with a 1 TB storage, does it make it reasonable?
Sony’s Next-Gen Console
The PS5 is reportedly going to feature an AMD Navi IGPU and 7nm AMD Ryzen technology. Moreover, it’s also expected to feature similar specs to the Xbox Anaconda.
