Massive leak says PS5 is better than the Xbox Series X in almost every way - BGR

Me:

Image result for when did this happen gif
Lol I was thinking about this thread earlier, was hilarious to check the OP and see that everything Legend tracked for Tidux turned out to be wrong.

This thread also reminded me that Zhuge posted here for a bit, and he's really blown up since then. Man, this forum could have been so much bigger :(

We were definitely held back by an identity crises of sorts. If we just followed the ResetEra approach and were an unapologetic reboot of the chertz we could have really grown. Right now we're closer to our PM hangout days than an actual forum but I think it will all work out eventually.

Maybe with next gen we should reboot this thread. If people post archives of the rumors and our interpretations of what they mean, I can add them to the OP.

Klee claims PS5 and Xbox Series X are virtually the same, or within 30% of eachother if one wants to be looser.

Klee was right about both being over 10.
Right about them being within 30%.
Arguably right about them being very close.  
Wrong about PS5 being ahead.

This was the other two claims:
He says no when asked if they are 30% a part. 
And then he follows up with saying that they are virtually identical.

I guess we'll find out when they both come out.  It's interesting that Cerny felt the clock speed idea was the way to go.  I would assume the power draw solution was to keep thermals in place.  
Did any "insider" say anything about the PS5's cooling solution?  They may have been right.
