Tom’s Hardware has compared PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X

The new-generation consoles have not yet spread around the world into the hands of ordinary gamers, and various information resources have already begun to give their own comparisons between PS5 and Xbox Series X. Tom’s Hardware journalists decided to compare both consoles before the start of sales and were able to form their own opinion about each. It should be noted right away that both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X have their pros and cons.

Design

The appearance of both consoles can hardly be called standard. The size of 151 x 151 x 301 mm speaks in favor of the Xbox, the matte surface of the device and the overall laconic design. On the side of the PS5 is an unusual appearance, with dimensions of 390 x 104 x 260 mm, which makes it the largest console at the moment. The only negative is the shiny strip in the middle of the console, which will most likely be covered with fingerprints very quickly. In terms of the appearance of consoles, the choice for buyers will be between laconic and sleek design.

Specifications

It’s hard to say at this point how much of an advantage the Xbox Series X will have with a faster processor and more compute units. As well as the higher GPU clock speeds on the PS5. One place the Xbox Series X lags behind is 802.11ac Wi-Fi versus the newer Wi-Fi 6 that the PS5 uses. Everything will depend on the optimization of a particular game.

Noise

The Xbox Series X is quieter than the PS5 in both standby and gaming. The Series X was virtually silent. The PS5 was not overly loud, although the fan made high pitched noises at idle and hibernation.

Controllers

The undisputed leader is the DualSense controller. Simply because Sony has made a new generation controller. And Microsoft just copied the old one, slightly improving the functionality.

Games

The game libraries are almost a draw as both consoles are backward compatible with their hits on the previous generation. The only thing is, the PS5 has a slight edge thanks to its Spider-Man exclusives: Miles Morales, Astro’s Playroom, Demon’s Souls, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure. While the Xbox does not have any ready-to-launch exclusives, Halo Infinite and The Medium have been delayed until 2021.

Outcome

Tom’s Hardware specialists voted in favor of the Xbox Series X. Although, in general, both consoles do not have any serious advantages over each other. So it’s up to buyers to decide which console to buy.
