PlayStation 5 CPU Clock Speed Likely To Be 3.2 GHz
There's still a lot we do not know about the PlayStation 5 specs, but it seems like the CPU clock speed has been confirmed through somewhat roundabout means.
During EGX 2019 last weekend, it's been confirmed by Digital Foundry that the PlayStation 5 SoC supposed codenames Gonzalo, Oberon, and Prospero are indeed real. From tests that have surfaced online in the past few months, we can deduce that the console's CPU clock speed will be 3.2 GHz. Coupled with what we know about the CPU, such as the 8 cores and 16 threads, this means that the PlayStation 5 CPU will be quite good, especially compared to today's consoles and that it likely won't have trouble supporting full backward compatibility with the entire PlayStation library.
The Gonzalo APU has been mentioned recently by a well-known PC leaker, Tum_Apisak. The leaker posted some benchmark scores which revealed that the Gonzalo APU will be four times more powerful than the base PlayStation 4 and offer a level of performance that is better than that offered by NVIDIA's GTX 1080 GPU.
The final design of the PlayStation 5 console has yet to be revealed, but we now know how the devkit looks, and it comes with a very unusual V-shaped cooling system.
The Playstation 5 console launches next year worldwide. We will keep you updated on the console as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
