Leaks surrounding Sony's potential release of a PlayStation 5 Pro have stirred up excitement among gaming enthusiasts. Reports suggest that Sony is gearing up to launch a revamped version of its popular console, promising significant performance upgrades over the existing PS5 models.

According to sources, including YouTuber Moore’s Law is Dead and reports from Insider Gaming, the PlayStation 5 Pro, codenamed Trinity, could offer up to three times faster rendering performance than its predecessor. 

The leaked specifications, allegedly obtained from a technical overview document, indicate a substantial increase in graphical processing power, with the GPU touted to deliver around 33.5 teraflops of single-precision compute. This could mark a 45 percent improvement over the current PS5's rendering capabilities.

While comparisons between teraflops are complex due to architectural differences, analysts suggest that the PS5 Pro may feature a GPU akin to the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT, offering enhanced performance for ray-traced games. Additionally, the leaked documents hint at improvements in ray tracing performance, potentially up to three times faster than the base PS5, with a rumored fourfold increase in some cases.

Further details from the leaks suggest that the PS5 Pro may feature a 'High CPU Frequency Mode,' boosting the CPU clock speed by 10 percent to 3.85GHz. However, activating this mode could slightly throttle the GPU performance. The console is also rumored to introduce PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR), an upscaling technology utilizing machine learning for image enhancement similar to Nvidia's DLSS or AMD's FSR.

In terms of hardware, the PS5 Pro is speculated to sport a detachable disc drive, offering flexibility to users who prefer physical media. It may also feature enhanced system memory running at 576 GB/s, representing a 28 percent improvement over the base PS5, and upgraded audio hardware capable of processing more effects, potentially enriching the gaming experience.

The Leaked PlayStation 5 Pro Specifications:

  • System Memory - 576 GB/s (18GT/s). This is a 28% increase over the standard console.
  • CPU - This seems to be the same, it does have a ‘High CPU Frequency Mode”, which takes the CPU to 3.85GHz – A 10% increase over the standard console.
  • Audio - ACV in the PlayStation 5 Pro runs at a higher clock speed over the standard PlayStation 5. The ACM library has 35% more performance.
  • Rendering 45% faster than standard PS5
  • 2-3x Ray-tracing (x4 in some cases)
  • 33.5 Teraflops
  • PSSR (PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution Upscaling) upscaling/anti-aliasing solution
  • Support for resolutions up to 8K is planned
  • Custom machine learning architecture
  • AI Accelerator, supporting 300 TOPS of 8-bit computation / 67 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point

While Sony has not officially commented on the leaks, industry analysts anticipate a late 2024 release for the PS5 Pro, aligning with previous reports suggesting Sony's intent to refresh its console lineup. The timing of the purported release coincides with speculation surrounding the launch of highly anticipated titles like Grand Theft Auto 6, hinting at Sony's strategy to capitalize on the excitement surrounding new game releases.

In the meantime, speculation and anticipation continue to grow as enthusiasts ponder the possibilities of what the PlayStation 5 Pro could bring to the gaming landscape. Whether it's enhanced graphics, smoother gameplay, or innovative features, one thing is certain: the gaming community eagerly awaits Sony's next move and their official confirmation of the PlayStation 5 Pro console.
