Sony announced details about its PlayStation 5 Pro console this morning online and it looks to be quite an upgrade over its predecessors.
PlayStation 5 Pro specs have leaked online and look to offer significant upgrades over its predecessors.
Rumors surrounding a PlayStation 5 Pro have swirled for some time now, including reports of its likely price point and estimated 2024 release date. With Sony unveiling an increasingly likely looking PS5 Slim earlier this month online, speculation about a PS5 Pro must surely follow soon thereafter.
RedGamingTech (RGT) recently issued an impressive report showing how the PlayStation 5 Pro stands as an upgrade over its standard counterpart – not surprising but with some noticeable differences between models.
There’s plenty of technical jargon in this report, but let’s do our best to break it down for you. First and foremost, RGT speculates that the PS5 Pro’s CPU and GPU may exceed those found on its standard PS5 model, suggesting frequencies “well over 3.6 GHz” on CPU side and 2.73 on GPU; for comparison purposes the standard PS5 offers up a variable CPU boost frequency between 2.5 to 3.35GHz as well as 2.23 on GPU; by contrast the latter supports variable boost frequency up to 3.85GHz/223 respectively for CPU side and 2.23 on GPU side respectively while RGT speculates (only so far!) that total compute could reach 23.04+TFLOPS with PS5 Pro.
What exactly do these improvements translate to, you might ask? Well, among their major benefits are more stable 60fps at 4K resolutions (no need for framerate vs performance modes!) plus 8K options and enhanced graphic features like accelerated ray-tracing.
This seems consistent with previous reports about the PS5 Pro console. Take all this with a grain of salt until Sony officially introduces their mid-gen hardware upgrade; but given how well received both PlayStation 4 Pro and Slim models were, we wouldn’t be shocked if we got an expensive mid-generation upgrade as well as expected to shell out several hundred pounds upfront for it!
