The specifications for Sony's upcoming PS5 Pro have reportedly leaked online, revealing upgrades to the GPU, CPU, and memory.

The details:

  • Documents containing the new system's specs, first shared by YouTuber Moore's Law is Dead and later confirmed by IGN and Insider Gaming, were said to have been obtained from Sony Interactive Entertainment's internal developer network.

  • The document reveals that the Pro will have the same CPU as the standard PS5, but it will include a "High CPU Frequency Mode" that increases speed by 10% at the expense of a 1% decrease in GPU performance.

  • The console is also equipped with a new 33.5 teraflop AMD GPU, as opposed to the PS5's 10.28 teraflops. Although the increase suggests that the new hardware is three times as powerful, The Verge reports that changes in AMD's architecture mean it's closer to a 45% increase in power.

  • Memory will also see a bump in speed from 448 GB/s (14GT/s) to 576 GB/s (18GT/s), and the Pro will launch with a 1 TB internal SSD and a detachable disc drive, just like the recent “Slim” model of the PS5.

  • The document also mentions the console's upscaling and anti-aliasing features, known as PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution Upscaling (PSSR). This is likely Sony's equivalent to Nvidia's DLSS, as mentioned by insider Jeff Grubb last year.
