Sony PS5 Pro: release date, price, technical sheet, everything you need to know

The PS5 Pro is already making waves and for good reason: Sony has accustomed us to offering a Pro version of its flagship console halfway through its life cycle. This is what the company did with the PlayStation 4. As a result, even before Sony officially talks about it, rumors start to appear on the web.

A priori the sketch of the PS5 Pro should look like a slightly more powerful console, capable of running games in 8K with a higher framerate than the current console. And maybe some small design tweaks.

First, let's address the burning question: when will the PS5 Pro be available? According to leaks and predictions from industry experts, the PS5 Pro could see the light of day in the second half of 2024. This launch window would place the release of the PS5 Pro approximately four years after that of the original PS5, following somewhat the pattern seen with the PS4 and PS4 Pro.< /p>

Reliable sources such as Jeff Grubb and Tom Henderson have mentioned specific dates, suggesting a September or November 2024 release. These predictions are based on historical trends and information leaks within the industry. They should therefore be taken with the necessary caution with regard to this type of information.

The price of the PS5 Pro is l&#8217 ;one of the most speculative aspects at this stage. The PS4 Pro launched at a price of €399, in line with the launch price of the base PS4. If Sony follows the same logic, we could expect the PS5 Pro to launch around €549, the launch price of the PS5.

However, given market developments and inflation, a higher starting price, perhaps around €599, would not be surprising. But this remains to be confirmed over the coming weeks.

The PS5 Pro promises to be a racehorse in terms of technical specifications. Rumors and leaks suggest significant improvements over the PS5, with a particular focus on support for 8K 120Hz resolution and ray tracing.

The console could boast 67 teraflops of computing power, which would translate to around 33.5 teraflops of actual in-game performance, marking a considerable jump from the PS5's 10.28 teraflops. This would be achieved through a larger number of GPU compute units and a move to the RNDA 3 architecture.

In terms of memory system, it is suggested that the PS5 Pro could benefit from an increase with still 16 GB of GDDR6 RAM, but more bandwidth (18 Gb/s versus 14 Gb/s). And also 13.7 GB available for gaming. The memory bus, still 256 bit, would go from 448GB/s to 576GB/s, thus improving overall performance.

The console's CPU would remain similar to that of the PS5 original (8 cores 16 threads Zen 2), but with a “High CPU Frequency” allowing it to reach up to 3.85 GHz (compared to 3.5 GHz for the current console) thus offering a small performance boost.

The data shown here is again taken from a leak, so it should be taken with caution.

The PS5 Pro should maintain compatibility with the library of existing PS5 games, without introducing any exclusive features or games. The current DualSense controller will likely remain the primary means of interaction.

It's also plausible that the PS5 Pro will be optimized to work in tandem with the PSVR 2 headset , leveraging its increased power to improve the performance and visual quality of VR experiences.

The release of a PS5 Pro in 2024 might seem premature for some, given that the current generation of consoles only seems to be beginning to realize its full potential.

However, with increasingly resource-intensive games and gamers' growing expectations for cutting-edge performance and graphics quality, an upgraded console like the PS5 Pro could meet a real need in the market.

For now, nothing has filtered out on the design of the PS5 Pro. Sony had reworked the design of the PS4 to launch the PS4 Pro with above all a difference in size between the slim version and the Pro version.

One could imagine that Sony will revisit a little the size of certain components, notably the imposing cooling solution of the first generation.
