Specs for the unannounced PS5 Pro have leaked online, teasing a more powerful, and even larger PlayStation console. The leaked specifications originated from SIE’s Developer Network, lending credibility to their authenticity.

Last month, analysts signalled that the PlayStation 5 Pro, featuring DLSS-style upscaling, could be released as early as 2024. With this leak, we can now be more certain that the PS5 Pro will launch this year, but likely in the second half.

In this guide, we'll unveil the leaked specs of the PS5 Pro, offering a glimpse into its potential power. Additionally, we will answer some frequently asked questions about the console.

PS5 Pro leaked specs

The leaked specs for the PS5 Pro suggest a significant performance boost over its predecessor, with enhancements including faster rendering, improved ray tracing capabilities, and the introduction of AI upscaling technology.

The PS5 Pro features the same 8-core/16-thread Zen 2 CPU, with a slight increase in clock speeds up to 3.85GHz compared to the standard PS5's 3.5GHz, potentially offering enhanced performance for gaming and multitasking.


The PS5 Pro's GPU is equipped with 60 compute units (CUs) and leverages AMD's RDNA 3 architecture (TBC). Compared to the standard PS5's 36 CUs on RDNA 2, this represents a significant upgrade in raw power and architectural advancements.

Improved ray tracing capabilities

The PS5 Pro offers 2x to 4x better ray tracing performance compared to the vanilla PS5. This improvement means more realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections in games, contributing to a more immersive gaming experience.

Faster rendering

The PS5 Pro is rumoured to render graphics about 45% faster than the standard PS5, thanks to its powerful GPU. This means games could run smoother, potentially allowing for higher frame rates or enhanced visual fidelity.

AI upscaling

With the introduction of PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR), the PS5 Pro aims to upscale images more effectively, potentially supporting up to 8K resolutions. This feature would make games look sharper and more detailed on 8K gaming TVs.


How many teraflops are in the PS5 Pro?

The PS5 Pro is said to boast 33.5 teraflops of processing power, compared to the 10.28 teraflops of the standard PS5. This means that the PS5 Pro is approximately three times more powerful than the PS5 vanilla in terms of computational performance.

How much will PS5 Pro cost?

Given the current top PS5 model is priced at $499, it's plausible the PS5 Pro could be priced at $50 to $100 more. This could potentially set its price at up to $599, although $549 may represent a more attractive option.

What is the GPU equivalent of PS5 Pro?

We can say that NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 or potentially an AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT are the GPU equivalent of PS5 Pro. While neither of these GPUs matches the PS5 Pro's specs exactly, they offer a ballpark for the kind of performance one might expect.
