Let's contemplate the __GPU__ performance jump between current and next gen given the latest developments. If anybody mentions the word CPU I will cut them! ;)

*We'll compare ps360 as an amalgam because their nominal TF difference is only 3% or so. I'm also rounding up and down by up to 3% for more digestible numbers. We'll consider base PS4 this gen's benchmark since it crushed the x1 in sales and disregard ps4pro/1x. *

__ps360__: ~0.25 tflop

__ps4__: 1.8 tflop = 7x jump nominal, **??**x real

__ps5__ @ 9.2 RDNA = ~**12.3 gcn** : 5x jump nominal, ~7x real

__sex__ @ 12 RDNA = ~**16 gcn** : 6.7x jump nominal , ~9x real

So series x has kept pace with last gen and ps has lagged behind. The sex is 33% more powerful than the PS5 in raw TFLOPs*, Why?

Maybe it's because 36 CU is double 18 CUs for the base ps4, and the same number of CUs as the PS4pro and this was chosen because it is very convenient for backward compatibility with ps4.

Either way, Microsoft's console is basically the high end of what people were hoping for, which is praise-worthy. If it releases at $500, it will be a fantastic bargain that will steal marketshare from Sony, guaranteed. At $600, it is much less compelling so I expect microsoft to stick to $500 and eat the loss.

__Assumptions:__

We know the GH leaks are legit, they have been confirmed multiple times. We know that RDNA has a 33% perf advantage per flop vs last gen. Assuming no major bombshells, we have the PS5 is both 9.2 tf rdna = 12.3 tf gcn. SeX is 12 tf rdna = 16tf gcn.

* Does anyone know the real (estimated) perf jump from last gen's tflop to current gen's tflop?

* In practice, PS5's higher clocks scale performance better than CU numbers so actual advantage is likely to be around 25-28%. Still significant. But only around 1/2 of current gen's advantage.
