PS5 is expected to be released in 2020 as a counter-attack to Microsoft's Xbox 2, but in addition to that, precious little things have been revealed about the next Sony system and its specs – so far.
That's because respected chip leaker @TUM_APISAK (H / T) went to Twitter to share details about the APU & # 39; they claim to strengthen PlayStation 5 – and that's a next AMD -chip currently coded & # 39; Gonzalo & # 39;  AMD Gonzalohttps: //t.co/uSTurBfcx3

Decipher the code we learn that PS5's chip will have eight CPU cores as on PS4 Pro, but these CPUs are likely to be based on the next generation of AMD Zen 2 architecture – or at worst, get an upgrade to the company's step-by-step Zen + update.
Whatever it is, it represents a significant power boost to the current Jaguar-based chip, and we should look at a maximum CPU clock speed in the 3.2 GHz region. With regard to the GPU, the leak claims that we get a highest clock speed of 1 GHz or better, but still no word on whether AMD's upcoming Navi architecture will work.
So yes, while it may not come as a shock, PS5 will be significantly stronger than the current PlayStation 4 & # 39; crop – although we still save early guesswork, so much is almost safe.
How powerful it is is still to be seen – like the PS5 & # 39; stacks up against Xbox Two when it is released.
Both next gene consoles are tipped for an E3 2020 disclosure, but we could get a new Xbox as soon as this year judges after the smoker factory talking about an Xbox Xbox system to be launched in 2019.
There is also a new challenger console in the form of Mad Box, but it is safe to say that it will have to be a dunk of an animal to really disrupt Xbox vs PlayStation duopoly.
