Playstation 5 Pro is coming-
The PlayStation 5 Pro has been rumoured to be released sometime next year and is expected to be the most powerful console ever made. Although the news of the console’s release was not directly from Sony, it would check out in comparison to the PS5 predecessor, the PS4. The PS4 launched in 2013 with its Pro version releasing in 2016, a 3-year time difference in comparison to the PS5’s life cycle.
The PS5 Pro is rumoured to have a CPU boost frequency of 3.6 GHz and a GPU frequency of 2.7 GHz, compared to the current PS5 model’s 3.5 GHz CPU and 2.23 GHz GPU. This boost in frequency would lead to more stability in 60 FPS at a clean 4K, and even 8K resolution options depending on titles and their availability to do so.
Many have begun speculating that recent delays in Sony titles are to make them coincide with the PS5 Pro launch to maximize sales. Rumoured titles such as the multiplayer-only title for The Last Of Us universe.
Some of the upcoming Final Fantasy remakes are said to be in development for the PS5 Pro. It would also make sense for Sony to want their most optimal console released in time for Grand Theft Auto 6, a potential Ghost Of Tsushima 2, and Marvel’s Wolverine.
It is plausible that the console’s announcement will happen sometime between summer and fall in preparation for a holiday 2024 launch.
PlayStation 5 Pro Specs
According to sources, the PlayStation 5 Pro is rumoured to be more powerful than the PS5. It is said to feature eight-core Zen 2 CPUs clocked in at 4GHz, an RDNA 3 GPU at 2.8 GHz, and 16GB of 18,000 MT/s GDDR6 memory with a bandwidth of 587 GB/s. However, these specs are unconfirmed, and Sony has yet to reveal any details.
60 fps 4K
The PS5 Pro is rumoured to have a significantly higher CPU and GPU than the standard PS5, with frequencies of “well over 3.6 GHz” and 2.7 GHz, respectively. This is a significant improvement from the standard PS5’s variable CPU boost frequency of 3.5 GHz and 2.23 GHz GPU. The PS5 Pro’s total compute is speculated to be roughly 23.04+ TFLOPS.
This improved power would result in a more stable 60fps at 4K resolutions, eliminating the need to choose between framerate and performance modes. The PS5 Pro could also offer 8K resolution options and enhanced graphical features like accelerated ray-tracing.
Overall, the PS5 Pro’s improved hardware specifications would allow for a smoother, more immersive gaming experience in 4K resolution at 60fps.
