With a cryptic message, a verified developer on NeoGAF has apparently given information on the performance data of the PS5.
While Sony still hasn’t shown anything regarding the performance data of the PS5, a developer on NeoGAF now gives a cryptic hint. The developer apparently reveals with his mysterious message that the PS5 will launch a graphics unit with 11 teraflops, 52 CUs and a clock frequency of 1743 MHz.
The NeoGAF user, verified as a developer, shared an image in which a dove says something to the PS5 architect Mark Cerny in bird language. The forum users have apparently decrypted the code used for the message with the information contained in the picture.
So the number of “Coos” in the message apparently stands for the number of CUs (Compute Units) of the graphics unit. Accordingly, the PS5 GPU has 52 CUs. There is also evidence of a clock frequency of 1743 MHz, which results from the compilation of the “Coos” in blocks. This results in the computing power of around 11.6 TFLOPs for the PS5 graphics unit. Furthermore, indications of 16 GB of GDDR6 memory with a bandwidth of 512 GB/s are identified.
It is also speculated that the information could be associated with a PS5 dev kit that is not yet at full capacity. With a potential for overclocking from 100 to 150 MHz, 12.2 to 12.6 TFLOPs would be realistic. The information should, of course, be used with great caution, as the community may have misinterpreted the information.
While events are currently being canceled due to the coronavirus, PlayStation fans are waiting for the announcement of the PS5 unveiling event. It is not yet known whether the virus has already affected the planning of the launch of the next-gen console. According to the latest information, the PlayStation 5 should continue to be available at the end of this year.
