double the power of PS5 and improved Ray-Tracing for a rumor

A rumor runs on twitter. There are already documents in circulation that suggest that Sony already has PlayStation 5 Pro in mind. According to what was reported by YouTuber Foxy Gamer and then reiterated by Red Gaming Tech, There are documents in circulation that testify to the start of projects for the Sony mid-gen. PlayStation 5 Pro, according to the two different sources, it would have twice the computing power of the standard PlayStation 5. Always according to the same documents, Ray-Tracing functionality will also be greatly improved compared to the console launched on the market in December 2020.

Red Gaming Tech, for example, in citing one of the documents to which it refers for its supposition, states that according to what is read, the new console will use a completely different architecture than RDNA 2 for the implementation of the new Ray-Tracing. The same “insider” reiterates how, in his opinion, a console of this kind will not arrive in stores before 2024 or even 2025. More precise Foxy Games which reports a power between 14 and 16 Teraflops and a RAM of 18 or 20 Gigabytes. Red Gaming Tech had already submitted this information in March 2022. The documents cited, however, have been around for a while. The patent registered in Europe, for example, dates back to mid-2021 and was posted on Neo-Gaf at the beginning of the year.

The current flagship console, PlayStation 5 standard, it stops at around 10.28 Teraflops of a bitpower and mounts a 16 Gigabyte GDDR6 256-bit RAM. To do a comparison, PlayStation 4 Pro brought the power of the generation to 2.3 Teraflops from the initial 1.8. The RAM capacity between the two models remained unchanged, set at 8 Gigabytes.


The reliability of the sources is uncertain but the documents presented in support of the thesis by Red Gaming Tech seem authentic. For the confirmations, as always, official news from Sony are awaited. PlayStation 5 Pro has been rumored for quite some time. The rumors about it are almost as ‘old’ as the PS5 release date.

What do you think about it? Would you prefer an upgraded version of the PS5 or would you be content to find one of the models currently in circulation?
