We are in a peculiar generation where games are still being released on old hardware (yes, systems released in 2013), and productions often fail to fully utilize the raw power of PS5, Xbox Series X, and high-end PCs. Given these circumstances, it’s puzzling to hear about a PS5 Pro, but apparently, the launch of this upgraded version of the PS5 could be expected in late 2024.

Insider Gaming and Moore’s Law is Dead (YouTube Channel) have provided new information regarding the improved version of the PS5, the PS5 Pro:

  • PS5 Pro is speculated to feature 67 teraflops of 16-bit computation, roughly equivalent to 33 teraflops.
  • Rendering capabilities are projected to be improved by 45%.
  • It is purported to be three times faster than the current model.
  • PS5 Pro memory is anticipated to have a bandwidth of 576 GB/sec, 28% more than the current model.
  • It will retain the same CPU but will be built with a high-frequency mode that boosts performance by an additional 10%.
  • PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution Upscaling (PSSR), a technology aimed at improving image quality similar to Nvidia’s DLSS, could enable PS5 Pro to offer 4K resolution and advanced ray tracing.
  • Developer kits are said to be delivered to first-party studios starting from September 2023 and to third-party developers from January 2024, with test kits expected to be distributed in the spring.
