    It sound's like sony was targeting 499$, ended with only slight edge over xsx but now are scared that microsoft could put 449$ or even with big lose 399$ on xsx.

    If these reports have any truth to them, they are in line with the github leaks.

    I found that xox 442$ a ps4 pro 318$. Great that sony won't go cheap with ps5.

    Not with a 400mm² APU and standard PC SSD (which will be more expensive).

    Something to remember, volume / discount pricing can (does) actually affect BoM pricing. So depending on the parts being ordered and volume, Sony and Microsoft can virtually have the same hardware both performance wise, but one can have a cheaper BoM on manufacturing virtually the same system.

    If the BOM is already at $450, it means PS5 is not using the Ariel 36CU 8TF APU.

    That the BOM of the XSX is higher*, that´s it

    *According to Zughex (He´s an analyst with ties to the industry), and one of the mods at Era I think

    Bom of x one even -75$ for kinect was little higher than ps4 even though ps4 has1.4faster soc so I wouldn’t speculate much from bom. What is sure that both sony and microsoft won’t go cheap.

    Just answering what correlation was implied, as you say, nothing is official yet.
    But I doubt any of them will screw things up, like the One.

    The Bom of last machines was almost tied (sans Kinect) because the soc of the One was larger and the case and cooling was overspecced.
    To me that was a colossal fuck-up, because it cost to manufacture a machine almost the same being 40% less powerful. anyway that´s water under the bridge

    That they spent more than usual on cooling which would certainly be needed if they went for those high clocks.

    They would need better cooling even with lower clocks but more cu's and over 10tf perf ;)

    Well duh, they're only getting 1 chip per wafer that's thermally acceptable with a 2GHz GPU/3.43 GHz CPU.

    Thermally acceptable is very subjective depending on how much liquid nitrogen you have access to.

    I was pretty confident from the outset PS5>PS4 (well at least since the 1st Cerny Wired article.

    Unless their V shaped cooling solution is countering any saving on the APU.

    Except MS had a bigger chip due to memory setup IIRC

    I am confused to how people can draw conclusions like this from the Bloomberg piece and yet dismiss conclusions drawn from the GitHub leak.

    You shouldn't be confused, there's a reason why. Anyway, the bloomberg leaks only support the github leak.

    Because console fanboys on both sides have obvious motives within these threads on trying to establish their toy of choice as being "teh mos powaful sistm!!!."

    Well one side has a nuke and the other side a bunch of black powder muskets.
