The existence of the PS5 Pro as a project at Sony is no longer in doubt as leaks from different sources multiply. The specialized media Digital Foundryassociated to Eurogamerwas able to gather additional information on the technical characteristics of the PlayStation 5 Pro, and in particular its graphics chip.

What we know about the PS5 Pro GPU

According to Digital Foundry, the graphics chip of the PlayStation 5 Pro would be based on the RDNA 3 architecture with a maximum frequency of 2.35 GHz. As a reminder, the classic PS5 uses an AMD RDNA 2 chip with 36 computing units at 2.23 GHz. With its expected 60 computing units, the PlayStation 5 Pro would display a raw power more than three times greater than the classic PlayStation 5, or 36 TFlops. Remember that raw power does not translate into an equivalent in-game performance gain. We will have to wait to see the games and the way they run on the new console to evaluate its performance in real conditions. Also be careful, this new maximum frequency is the result of a boost mode that the console will not be able to reach permanently. It will be up to developers to properly optimize their games to take advantage of these additional performance windows for more demanding moments in their games.

We also learn that the PlayStation 5 Pro would be fully compatible with the features of DirectX 12 Ultimate, like the Xbox Series X, which should facilitate the development of cross-platform games. This includes taking charge of the Variable Rate Shading and full support for Mesh Shaders. Without revealing more, Digital Foundry also recalls that the PlayStation 5 Pro should rely on an image reconstruction technique similar to FSR 2 or DLSS called PSSR (PlayStation Spectral Sampling Resolution) which should make it possible to increase the definition of rendering and game performance.

The PlayStation 5 Pro is expected at the end of the year. Sony could unveil this machine during a conference around June or September, the two periods favored by the manufacturer historically for this type of announcement.
