PS5 Pro is real, find out the the brand!

Sony is preparing to launch an enhanced version of the PS5, likely towards the end of the year. Following recent leaks of the PS5 Pro specifications, The Verge has acquired detailed specs for this upcoming console. Sources familiar with Sony’s plans indicate that developers are already tasked with ensuring game compatibility, particularly focusing on optimizing ray tracing.

Known internally as “Trinity,” the PlayStation 5 Pro will feature a more powerful GPU and a slightly faster CPU mode. These enhancements signal a PS5 Pro capable of rendering ray-traced games and achieving higher resolutions and frame rates in specific titles. Sony is urging developers to leverage advanced graphics like ray tracing, with games potentially earning a “Trinity Enhanced” label for delivering significant improvements.

Sony anticipates the PS5 Pro’s GPU rendering to be approximately 45 percent faster than the standard PS5, with a larger GPU and faster system memory improving ray tracing capabilities. Additionally, the PS5 Pro features a more robust ray tracing architecture, boasting speeds up to three times better than the regular PS5.

“Trinity is a high-end version of PlayStation 5,” according to internal documents, with Sony planning to continue selling the standard PS5 alongside this new model. Sony expects developers to create unified packages supporting both PS5 and PS5 Pro, with existing games eligible for patches to deliver enhanced performance.

Developers can currently order test kits, and Sony aims for every game submitted for certification in August to be compatible with the PS5 Pro. Insider Gaming was the first to report the full PS5 Pro specs, projecting a holiday 2024 release.

While the PS5 Pro’s GPU sees significant upgrades, the CPU remains the same as the standard PS5 but with a new mode targeting a 3.85GHz CPU frequency, approximately 10 percent higher than the regular PS5. Sony offers developers the option between a “standard mode” at 3.5GHz or a “high CPU frequency mode” at 3.85GHz.

In the high CPU frequency mode, more power is allocated to the CPU, resulting in a slight reduction in GPU performance. The GPU is downclocked by about 1.5 percent in this mode, translating to roughly 1 percent lower overall performance, according to Sony.

The PS5 Pro also features enhancements to system memory, with the memory speed increased by 28 percent to 576GB/s compared to the standard PS5. This boost in memory speed and allocations may support Sony’s new PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR) technology, an upscaling solution akin to Nvidia’s DLSS or AMD’s FSR, designed to enhance frame rates and image quality.

Sony’s custom machine learning architecture on the PS5 Pro supports 300TOPS of 8-bit computation, powering the PSSR upscaling solution. Sony notes that this support requires around 250MB of memory, and they are working towards supporting resolutions up to 8K with reduced latency.
