Sony Confirmed to be Working on a PS5 Pro Model


Sony is no stranger to launching its mainline consoles in different special editions and revisions, and it looks like the company is at it again – new reports confirm that the Japanese tech giant is working on a more powerful version of the PlayStation 5, currently known as the PS5 “Pro.” 

According to a report from the folks over at The Verge, Sony has been in talks with various developers to prepare games ready over the summer – it’s also said that the company will make ray-tracing support a top priority with the Pro model. The report also states that sources have confirmed a number of hardware specifications for the upcoming console.

The PS5 Pro is codenamed “Trinity,” and packs a more powerful GPU (45% faster than the standard model) and slightly faster CPU mode. Supposedly, the PS5 Pro will be capable of rendering games with ray tracing enabled, as well as higher resolutions and frame rates in certain titles. Select titles will also be able to use a “Trinity Enhanced” (PS5 Pro Enhanced) if they come with “significant enhancements.”

Additionally, a document from Sony to developers says that while the Pro model comes with the same CPU on the standard PS5, a new mode will be included for faster clock speeds, with up to as much as 10% faster speeds.

PS5 Pro dev kits will supposedly have changes to system memory, running to as high as 576GB/s on the PS5 Pro. Futhermore, games can use an additional 1.2GB of system memory on the PS5 Pro – 13.7GB overall compared to the 12.5GB allocated to games on the regular PS5 model. At this point, no solid launch date has been set, although it’s strongly believed that Sony might get the PS5 Pro launch in time for the holidays.
