PS5 Pro Specs Leak Investigation: Is Sony Going After the Source?


The gaming world is abuzz with rumors about the alleged PlayStation 5 Pro (PS5 Pro) specs leak, and Sony’s reported investigation into the matter has only fueled the speculation.

Where Did the Leak Originate?

The alleged PS5 Pro specs first surfaced last week when YouTuber Moore’s Law Is Dead shared what appeared to be internal documentation detailing the console’s specifications.

Not long after, Insider Gaming’s Tom Henderson corroborated the leak, stating that the documents came from a PlayStation developer portal.

The information quickly spread like wildfire across gaming forums and social media platforms, igniting discussions and debates among enthusiasts.

So, What Are the Purported PS5 Pro Specs?

According to the leak, the PS5 Pro is shaping up to be a powerhouse, boasting:

  • A GPU rendering speed 45% faster than the base PS5
  • 2-3 times better ray-tracing performance (up to 4 times in some cases)
  • A staggering 33.5 Teraflops of computing power
  • PSSR (PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution Upscaling) for enhanced visuals
  • Support for resolutions up to 8K in future SDK versions
  • A custom machine learning architecture
  • An AI Accelerator capable of 300 TOPS of 8-bit computation and 67 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating-point calculations
  • System memory: 576 GB/s (18GT/s) – a 28% increase over the base PS5
  • CPU: Identical to PS5 but with a ‘High CPU Frequency Mode’ pushing it to 3.85GHz (10% faster)
  • GPU: 30 WGPs running specialized BVH8 traversal shaders vs. 18 WGPs on the base PS5
  • SSD: 1TB of storage
  • A detachable disk drive

Sony’s Investigating the Leak? It Must Be Legit, Right?

While Sony hasn’t officially confirmed the existence of the PS5 Pro, Henderson reports suggest that the company has launched an internal investigation to identify the source of the leaked specs.

If true, this move suggests that the leaked information might be more than just rumors, potentially lending credibility to the purported specs.

When Can We Expect the PS5 Pro?

If the rumors are true, industry insiders speculate that the PS5 Pro could hit stores as early as fall 2024.

However, Sony is unlikely to confirm or deny these reports anytime soon, leaving us to speculate until an official announcement is made.
