PS5 vs PS4: Which is more powerful?

There will be no surprise here, but PS5 is much more powerful than PS4 Pro and PS4. Not only does Sony's next-gen system have superior CPUs and GPUs, but its SSD is also much faster. For more information about the SSD, refer to the following: PS5 SSD: Why It's Better Than HDD. The only real downside is that, at an unorthodox 825GB, the PS5 has less storage space than the PS4 Pro. Apart from that, the PS5 smokes its predecessor in every category.
