PS5 Pro Leak Hints Big Upgrade

PS5 Pro Leak Hints Big Upgrade

The new PS5 Pro leak suggests we’re in for a significant update. Sony has not confirmed any leaked content, but issuing a copyright takedown suggests the leaks are accurate. Here’s everything we know about the big update!

Who Is Behind the PS5 Pro Leak?

The leaks, which initially surfaced on the YouTube channel ‘Moore’s Law is Dead,’ are confirmed to be true by Insider Gaming.

Despite doubts about where it came from and what it says, their confidential sources say the leak is accurate. They asked to stay anonymous due to their lack of authorization to discuss company plans. Insider Gaming stated that the leaked details stem from a PlayStation developer portal and were distributed to a broader range of third-party developers earlier this week.

PS5 Pro Releasing: Potential Release Window

Rumors say the PS5 Pro is aiming to hit markets sometime this year. However, a few new games are coming out for the PlayStation 5 this year, so the release date might be moved around.

Features According to the PS5 Pro Leak

The PS5 Pro leak suggests a significant update is on the way. Read the following list to learn about the new features it will have:

  • 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 the future SDK version
  • Custom machine learning architecture
  • Detachable disc drive
  • AI Accelerator, supporting 300 TOPS of 8-bit computation / 67 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point

Improved GPU and CPU

In addition to these features, the PS5 Pro leak reports an improved GPU and CPU. According to The Verge, the PS5 Pro, codenamed Trinity, will have upgraded specs. The new PS5 will have a better GPU for higher frame rates and resolutions, plus improved ray tracing.

Since Sony reportedly urges developers to incorporate more GPU-intensive effects like ray tracing in upcoming games, it will earn them a PS5 Pro Enhanced label for utilizing the new console’s technology.

According to the PS5 Pro leak, it shares the same CPU as the standard model. However, it features a new mode that allows the CPU to be overclocked to 3.85 GHz, providing a 10% performance boost. This mode activates based on a game’s requirements rather than being manually triggered by players.

In the new high CPU frequency mode for the PS5 Pro, more power is directed to the CPU, slightly reducing the allocation to the GPU. Sony mentions that the GPU is downclocked by approximately 1.5%, resulting in “roughly 1 percent lower performance.”

Sony calls the PS5 Pro a Trinity Project: “Trinity is a high-end version of PlayStation 5,” emphasizing that it won’t replace the standard console but will be a premium option for serious gamers.

Memory System 

PS5 Pro brings improved GPU and CPU and has also worked on enhancing its memory system. The PS5 Pro will have faster memory for developers. While the standard PS5 runs at 448GB/s, Sony is increasing this by 28% to 576GB/s on the Pro. Sony says the memory system on the Pro is more efficient, so the actual speed boost might be even higher.

Developers will have increased access to system memory on the PS5 Pro. The PS5 Pro leak suggests games can utilize an additional 1.2GB of system memory, totaling 13.7GB overall compared to the 12.5GB allocated on the base PS5.

The faster memory and increased allocations could help Sony’s New PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR) support, similar to Nvidia’s DLSS or AMD’s FSR. Sony has also built a custom architecture for machine learning on the PS5 Pro, supporting 300 TOPS of 8-bit computation.


The new architecture supports Sony’s custom PSSR upscaling solution, intended to replace a game’s current temporal antialiasing or upsampling implementation. Sony mentions that the inputs for their solution are pretty similar to DLSS or FSR and confirms full HDR support. This support requires approximately 250MB of memory, where the memory allocations on the PS5 Pro will be beneficial. Sony says it takes about two milliseconds to upscale a 1080p image to 4K. They’re also working on supporting resolutions up to 8K and reducing latency even more in the future.

That’s all the information we have about the PS5 Pro leak for now. We’ll keep you updated here if there are any further developments.
