Xbox Lockhart, the apparently ‘budget’ version of Xbox Series X, has a quicker main processing system (CPU) than the PlayStation 5, according to reports.
Microsoft has yet to reveal its rumored Xbox Series S console– the expected less expensive brother of the Xbox Series X model– however, according to The Brink’s Tom Warren, Lockhart will more than hold its own against Sony’s upcoming console.
Requiring to his individual Twitter account in the wake of allegations that Lockhart will “hold back next-gen”, Warren mentioned that its CPU overtook its competitor and would support raytracing.
With the PS5 set to feature an eight-core AMD Zen 2 CPU clocked at 3.5 GHz, and a custom-made GPU that boasts 10.28 teraflops, Lockhart’s own CPU will need to be a monster to beat it.
Warren’s latest remarks followed another tweet he posted on Thursday, June 27, which recommended that Lockhart’s CPU performed at the very same speed as Xbox Series X. Regardless Of Lockhart reportedly having a various graphics processing system (GPU) and control system (CU) count, Warren mentioned that Series X and Lockhart would run as rapidly as each other.
Another report from Warren– on Wednesday, June 26– also hinted that Lockhart’s other specifications, consisting of 7.5 GB of RAM and 4 teraflops of GPUperformance To compare, Series X is believed to have 13.5 GB of RAM and 12 teraflops of GPU performance.
