Rumors about a PS5 Pro They are not new. For no less than a year we have been listening to—or reading—comments related to what would be the next big update for Sony’s console. And in the last few hours more data has been leaked that generates a lot of excitement among fans.
According to renowned reporter Jeff Grubb in Game Mess, his podcast, the Japanese company is working to launch the PS5 Pro next year. According to the journalist, this could be around september. If confirmed, it would be a very hectic time of year for the transportation sector. gaming and the technology industry in general. Let’s not forget that, among many other announcements, it is rumored that the Nintendo Switch 2 could arrive at the same time.
However, the most notable thing about Grubb’s comments is his response to a leak that became known in recent days. It indicated that the PS5 Pro would double the performance of ray tracing hardware accelerated. This would allow, in theory, to enjoy this technology without being tied to the graphical fidelity mode of compatible games.
The crucial element is that Sony would achieve this hand in hand with its own scaling technology, similar to NVIDIA’s DLSS. This would allow artificial intelligence to be used to scale the resolution of games, offering greater graphic quality without sacrificing frames per second, and without noticeably affecting hardware performance.
“The most important thing here, that is, the big feature that this system will support, will be Sony’s proprietary DLSS-like solution. [Con ella] They’ll use their own machine learning to enhance the images so they can run things at a much higher resolution and frame rate. And they would achieve this by including their own dedicated hardware on the PS5 Pro. That’s where double the performance on the ray tracing accelerated by hardware, but they would be able to achieve much more than just that,” emphasizes Jeff Grubb.
The PS5 Pro could arrive in September 2024
Beyond support for a proprietary DLSS-style solution, Grubb indicates that The final technical specifications of the PS5 Pro are not yet known. According to its sources, the final table of characteristics is “within a range of possibilities” that Sony has not yet closed.
The interesting thing is that the reporter himself indicates that the PS5 Pro is probably not disruptive, but that it will “sell well” anyway. If the information available is accurate, it will be interesting to see how Sony organizes its console strategy.
Let us remember that the Japanese launched the long-awaited PS5 Slim this year, although it is not officially known under that nickname. The new version of the console brings a great novelty that the digital edition can now attach a disc drive that is sold separately. Sony’s intention is for these updated models to become the standard option, once the original versions with and without Blu-ray drive are sold out on the market.
If Jeff Grubb is right and the PS5 Pro arrives in 2024, rumors about the console will abound in the coming months. The interesting thing is that, up to this point, the leaks about the device have always been about the same thing: improving the ray tracing and the graphic quality in general. It would not be strange if, already in the new year, we begin to see leaks of the possible design, its most important technical characteristics and its price. We will follow the matter closely.
