The PlayStation 5’s power might just have been discovered! A Reddit leaker and Twitter user by the name of _rogame has posted a series of tweets that allows users to calculate the PS5’s power.
A little late to the party 😅. Still new to the console stuff

If we do the math – (which I’ll spare you) – the PlayStation 5 will run at 2ghz with a total of 9.2 TeraFlops.
While TeraFlops aren’t the end all be all of what a console is – this number could suggest a $399 price tag!
The news comes hot off the heels of reporting by website, Windows Central, that the Xbox Series X will target 12 TeraFlops. It will be interesting what price point Microsoft goes with – but Digital Foundry’s own Richard Leadbetter suggests a minimum of $499.
With all that said, we at RemotePlay are huge fans of PlayStation and can’t wait for what comes next. The real question is – will you be interested in a $399 PS5 with a Zen 2 processor, SSD, and over 9 TeraFlops?
