    With these consoles and 2K native upscaled to 4K resolution, visuals will be eye melting.

    I am sure Sony will be shooting for that. For MS, who knows.

    Kojima probably invited him over to do his laundry.

    I'm 98.4234% sure that this leak was legit. Every piece of it has appeared in other leaks we take to be credible, Flute benchmark, Github leak. Nothing about it has been in conflict with new info.

    Yes, me too. The things that actually looked suspcious (18Gbps modules from Samsung and die size) now look like most legit part.

    Flute benchmark had downclocked 18Gbps memory and 13F9 GPU - Oberon A0. Oberon A0 from all that can be seen in Regression_test_native is 40CU chip (36 active) on 256bit bus. ~14.1mm² in height makes it fit perfectly to Navi 10 chip on same bus, and funnily enough this leaked before we knew the size of 40CU Navi.

    Biggest red flags about this leak was the fact that it was released on 21/05/2019, which by many was far too early for dev kit, but then we got confirmation that "V" style dev kits were actually sent to developers in June/July, therefore making enitre thing even more legit.

    To me, this always had a good chance of being real considering someone on manufacturing site can easily get this info + he never talked about TFlops, dual GPUs, GTAVI and date of next years conference.

    *Bonus point for a leak is that it came out before Navi and Flute/Github leak and not the other way around

    So it could be Laundry, exactly as @Scott_Arm said.

    It's really seeming like there will be very little difference in the CPU/memory/storage specs between these machines...

    Technical tidbits from the one link (blame Google for any mistranslations) ...

    According to previous reports, the PS5018-E18 master will provide a reading/write speed of 7GB/s and a reading/write speed of up to 1000k IOPS. In order to achieve this goal, GroupLink has changed from TSMC's 28nm lithography technology to the latest 12nm manufacturing process, controlling the controller power consumption to a maximum of about 3W, and increasing the speed of each memory channel from 800 MT/s to 1200MT/s, which greatly improves the speed of the controller. The new controller will also support DDR4/LPDDR4 caching and will be able to support TLC and QLC NAND, as will NVMe 1.4 protocols.​

    Digitimes doesn’t mention the type of controllers.

    E18/16 or something else are purely speculation.

    The only info now is from windowscentral who claims up to 2GB/sec.

    I thought it was interesting marketing saying "Fastest. Most Powerful" before we even know the official specs of each.

    Article was behind paywall for me. Do I didn't get to the original source.

    Makes sense especially considering AMD invested $15 million into the development of these new phison controllers to hasten their launch.

    And WindowsCentral talk of 2GB/s is only going by PR speak.
