Impressive-Sounding PS5 Pro Specs And Release Window Reportedly Leaked

Sony's rumored PS5 mid-gen refresh could allow for massive graphical gains.


Details on the rumored--and unannounced--PlayStation 5 Pro have reportedly leaked online, alongside claims that the console is aiming for a Q4 2024 release. According to the YouTube channel Moore's Law Is Dead and corroborated by Insider Gaming, the PS5 Pro specs include a "High CPU Frequency Mode" that increases the PS5 CPU by 10% to 3.85Ghz and a new GPU that is said to be capable of up to 45% faster rendering and dramatically improved ray tracing effects.

This GPU is claimed to be clocked at 33.5 teraflops, triple that of the standard PS5's 10.28 teraflop GPU, although this doesn't equate to triple the power in a direct comparison. It's also reported that this model will have a detachable disc drive and 1TB of storage capacity. What's especially interesting here is the claim of new upscaling and anti-aliasing techniques called PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution Upscaling, similar to Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR solution to maximize the potential of its hardware with temporal upscaling technology.

Now Playing: Hi-Fi RUSH | PS5 Announcement Trailer

Sony has not yet commented on these reports, but if they are true, then a PS5 Pro could be released four years after the original PS5 first arrived in November 2020. Last year saw Sony expand on its hardware library with the release of PlayStation VR2, a slimmer PS5 console, and the PlayStation Portal handheld streaming device.

In PlayStation business news, Sony has revised its sales forecast for the current financial year, as it expects to sell 21 million PS5 consoles by the end of that period, down from its ambitious estimate of 25 million sales. The announcement knocked $10 billion off the company's stock value last month, and Sony added that there will be no new "major" projects released until at least April 2025.

Like other major publishers and developers, Sony has also been a part of industry-wide layoffs, with over 900 staff and Sony London being impacted by cost-cutting measures.
