The Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5 will be launched at the end of next year and many are speculating on the performance of both, which apparently will be very similar given that they are equipped with virtually identical AMD hardware.

Today, during the GTC (GPU Technoloy Conference) of Nvidia, its CEO Jensen Huang, published a slide of a notebook that has an GeForce RTX 2080, and states that this is faster than the next generation of consoles. From this it can be deduced that both consoles will have a GPU with an intermediate performance between an RTX 2070 or RTX 2070 SUPER, or an RX 5700 XT that is basically a midpoint between these last two Nvidia GPUs – except in specific cases with DirectX12 where the RX 5700 XT is superior.
