YouTube channel Digital Foundry has posted a video outlining some specs of the upcoming Sony and Microsoft consoles to be released this year. So far, the two companies have been able to keep some secrecy about their equipment specifications, but the Digital Foundry people seem to have done extensive and thorough research, and decided to expose some of that information.
We already know that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will use next-generation AMD Ryzen CPUs, which are custom-designed chips, as well as SSDs as storage devices.
Earlier leaks also exposed the codenames of both platform GPUs, with Oberon for the PS5 chip and Arden for the Xbox Series X chip.

Oberon and Arden = many teraflops
According to DF, the Oberon GPU will have 36 Navi compute units running at a maximum frequency of 2.0 GHz. This would deliver a processing power of up to 9.2 teraflops, with memory bandwidth remaining between 448 and 512 GB / s. .
To maintain compatibility with previous console games (PS4 and PS4 Pro), the GPU would have three different operating modes.
The Xbox Series X chip, on the other hand, would have 3584 shaders, which requires 56 Navi compute units. DF estimates that Arden chip hardware can reach up to 12 teraflops in capacity. Memory bandwidth should be around 560 GB / s.
As the PS5 chip is likely to focus more on cost-effectiveness, the DF speculates that Sony's console should be priced at $ 399. As for the next Xbox, the channel has not bet on a value, but stated that it should be much more expensive than the competitor.
