Sony Accidentally Confirmed the PlayStation 5 Pro by Filing a Copyright Strike

A bigger and better PS5 is on the way. Recently, PlayStation 5 Pro specifications were leaked through a video, which has now been removed from YouTube, as Sony filed a copyright strike against Moore’s Law is Dead’s video on PlayStation 5 Pro leaks. Sony’s aggressive step has confirmed that the PlayStation 5 Pro is in the works.

As the news came out, game developers were ensuring their products were compatible with the latest console, primarily focusing on ray tracing. Find out everything about the specifications of the latest edition of the famous console generation.

New Features of the PlayStation 5 Pro

Insider Gaming gained access to the leaked documents and reported the specifications. PlayStation 5 Pro, known as Trinity, will have the following changes:

  • Rendering 45% faster than PS5
  • 2-3x Ray-tracing (x4 in some cases)
  • 33.5 Teraflops
  • PSSR (PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution Upscaling) upscaling/antialiasing solution
  • Support for resolutions up to 8K is planned for future SDK version
  • Custom machine learning architecture
  • AI Accelerator, supporting 300 TOPS of 8-bit computation / 67 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point

Sony’s Collaboration with Game Developers Before Officially Launching PlayStation Pro 5

The PlayStation Pro 5 also has the promising capability of better rendering games with its ray tracing system. Moreover, it will display better game resolutions at faster frame rates. Hence, these upgrades encourage game developers to make more compatible game versions for the latest console. They can get test kits to check if their games are compatible. Sony wants all games submitted for certification in August to work with the PS5 Pro. Thus, once the games are compatible with the ray tracing features, they will be labeled “Trinity Enhanced” (PS5 Pro Enhanced).


According to the leaked documents, the PlayStation Pro 5 is faster than the standard model of the PlayStation 5, projecting the speed of the PS5 Pro to be three times better than the standard console. There will also be changes in the system memory for developers.

Moreover, it is called the high-end version of PlayStation Pro 5 with overall performance increases. Its CPU frequency rate is 10 percent higher than that of the regular PS5 model. Depending on the performance targets, developers can choose between a “standard mode” at 3.5 GHz or the “high CPU frequency mode” at 3.85 GHz.


The CPU takes up a higher performance load than the GPU. Downclocking the GPU by around 1.5 percent subsequently gives it a 1 percent lower performance. Nonetheless, the GPU is still strong compared to the older consoles. It has more robust hardware, which is 45 percent more powerful than the previous versions of the PlayStation.

Memory System Upgrade

The standard console has 448 GB of memory. The PlayStation Pro 5 has a 28% better memory system at 576 GB/s. Hence, according to Sony, the memory bandwidth gain and the RAM are expected to exceed 28 percent. This will help with the PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR) and enhance image quality with increased frame rates.

Sony thinks that the faster memory and allocations might help with their new PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR) support. It’s like Sony’s version of Nvidia’s DLSS or AMD’s FSR, aiming to make games look better and run smoother on the PlayStation. On the PS5 Pro, Sony has created a specialized architecture for machine learning, capable of processing 300 TOPS of 8-bit computations.

This new architecture introduces Sony’s unique machine-learning-based upscaling solution (PSSR), designed to replace a game’s existing temporal anti-aliasing or upsampling implementation. Sony highlights the similarity of inputs to DLSS or FSR and confirms full HDR support. This requires around 250MB of memory, so memory allocations on the PS5 Pro are better. Sony mentions about 2 ms of latency when upscaling a 1080p image to 4K, with ongoing efforts to support resolutions up to 8K and improve latency further in the future.

The new PS5 console is expected to be released during the holiday season this year. Given the impressive new features, it is expected to be expensive. For now, the price point could increase to $599. Check out this space for more updates on PlayStation Pro 5.
