Also, awkwardly, 10.28 teraflops of GPU processing power, which is more than the PS4’s 4.2 teraflops but less than the Xbox Series X’s 12 teraflops, and teraflops are important because #TERAFLOPS. At launch, the PS5 will include backwards compatibility support for only about 100 PS4 games – not because of the architecture, though, but because the PS5 is so hyper-fast that PS4 games can’t even keep up.
