The PlayStation 5 Slim has recently been released, and the rumors about the next model, the PlayStation 5 Pro, have been circulating for some time now.
The buzz about the PlayStation 5 Pro indicates it could feature enhanced ray tracing and significantly improved performance due to a new GPU. In addition, leaked information hints that the CPU might no longer be based on AMD architecture.
Recently, RedGamingTech revealed new information regarding the console’s specs. According to their report, the console will be powered by an eight-core Zen 2 CPU with clock speeds in the low 4 GHz range. It’s expected to have a custom GPU with 60 compute units based on the RDNA 3 architecture, operating at 2500-2800 MHz.
Moreover, the console is anticipated to feature 16 GB of GDDR6 memory running at 18000MT/s, which could potentially deliver twice the performance of the Tempest Engine and include two shader engines.
It’s important to remember that the clock speeds are not yet finalized and won’t be confirmed until the system is ready for launch. Sony is currently in the testing phase, exploring various versions of the console.
Although it’s preliminary data, it’s evident that the CPU will stick with the same Zen 2 architecture as the current model, as per insights from another credible leaker, Kepler. The real focus for the PS5 Pro will be on the fresh GPU, built on the Zen 3 architecture.
We’ve obtained this information with some difficulty, and you won’t find it widely available on the internet because, for now, there are only rumors about it. PlayStation hasn’t made an official announcement yet. As time goes on and updates come in, we’ll keep you informed.
