I can't see that happening. Navi 10 is a replacement for Polaris 30. Polaris 30 is a 7 tflop chip with 36 CU's, so 13 tflops and 60 CU's would be nearly double it's predecessor. AMD has never managed to release a new GPU generation with a performance improvement of more than 1.5x over the previous generation afaik. For instance, Polaris 30, RX 590, offered a 1.4x improvement in flops over the previous generation GPU it replaced, the R9 390.

SO you contradicted your own original post??? 

How so? If AMD can manage to pull off a 1.5x improvement again, that would put Navi 10 at 10.6 tflops, which is within the 10-12 tflop range that Digital Foundry says to expect for PS5 in the video. If they can pull off a 1.6x improvement, which they have never done before to my knowledge, but might be possible since they have been working on Navi for nearly 3 years since Polaris released, that would put Navi 10 at 11.4 tflops (very close to the 11.1 tflop 48 compute unit number in the video). 

All I'm saying is, keep your expectations in check. Better to be pleasantly surprised if AMD does pull off a big improvement for Navi 10 over it's predecessor, than to be disappointed because you are expecting high end performance numbers from a mid-range chipset.
