PS5 Pro

The gaming industry is abuzz with rumours of a new console from Sony: the PS5 Pro. This high-end version of the PS5 is said to be in development, with a focus on improving ray tracing and offering a more powerful GPU and a slightly faster CPU mode. According to The Verge, this console will possibly launch at the end of this year. There are already leaks and speculations regarding the specs of this device. Internal reports also claim that Sony is currently charging developers to ensure that their games are compatible with the new console. The company wants developers to have games that support both PS5 and PS5 Pro.

An internal Sony document shows that “Trinity is a high-end version of PlayStation 5,”. Apparently, “Trinity” is the codename for the PS5 Pro. Nevertheless, Sony has indicated that it will continue to sell the standard model after the launch of the Pro model.

Sony PS5 Pro: Specifications and Features

The CPU and GPU of the Pro model will be better than the standard model. Reports so far reveal that the CPU will be the same as the standard model but its performance will be about 10% better. This is because the chip will have a new mode that will make it clock 3.85GHz. This is higher than the 3.5 GHz clock speed of the standard model. On the GPU end, it will be larger and use faster memory to improve ray tracing.  According to Sony, it will use a “more powerful ray tracing architecture.”

In terms of memory bandwidth, the Pro model will have up to 576GB/s. This is about 128GB/s higher than the 448GB/s recorded in the regular PS5. With this, the PS5 Pro memory system will likely be more efficient but the difference may not be conspicuous. In addition, the PS5 Pro will come with up to 13.7GB of system memory which means that the Pro model users will have over 1GB additional of memory space. Recall that the standard model comes with 12.5GB of memory. In addition to its 300TOPS of 8-bit computation, the PS5 Pro also comes with a “custom architecture for machine learning”.

According to reports, Sony’s PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR) upscaling technology aims to deliver 4K at 120 FPS and 8K at 60 FPS. The PS5 Pro will have an internal goal of achieving 4K at 120 FPS and 8K at 60 FPS. However, due to hardware limitations, the PS5 Pro may not be able to reach these targets. The focus could eventually be hitting 4K at 60 FPS and 8K at 30 FPS. The PSSR technology is expected to consume approximately 250MB of memory, with 180MB from the PSML Library and 64MB from the game. Additionally, the PSSR is expected to introduce around 2ms of latency when upscaling 1080p to 4K. The PSSR technology is designed to improve the visual quality of games, allowing for higher resolutions and frame rates.
