Rumored ‘PS5 Pro’ Spec Leak Reportedly Real, Coming Holiday 2024

It’s about that time in a console generation where mid-gen refreshes are about ready to storm the market, and coming from the PS5, which was released in 2020, a more powerful “PS5 Pro” might make its way out soon if the usual timelines are followed.


Recently, YouTuber Moore’s Law is Dead claimed that they have access to a leaked document for the PS5 Pro, which outlines its technical specs and details. While MLID does not generally have a good track record, Tom Henderson is now corroborating the legitimacy of the document, saying that the leaked specs are indeed real.

According to Tom Henderson of Insider Gaming, the documentation came from “a PlayStation developer portal, which was sent out this week to a wider band of third-party developers.”


Codenamed Trinity, this new hardware will sport the following features and specs based on the leaked document:

  • Rendering 45% faster than PS5
  • 2-3x Ray-tracing (x4 in some cases)
  • 33.5 Teraflops
  • PSSR (PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution Upscaling) upscaling/antialiasing solution
  • Support for resolutions up to 8K is planned for future SDK version
  • Custom machine learning architecture
  • AI Accelerator, supporting 300 TOPS of 8-bit computation / 67 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point

Additionally, Insider Gaming also confirms that the devkits for the PS5 Pro have already been made available to first-party studios since September 2024 and third-party studios since January 2024.

The PS5 Pro is reportedly tentatively scheduled for a Holiday 2024 release, but plans could change “due to the lack of first-party games released on the PlayStation 5 this year.”

As with all unconfirmed reports, a grain of salt is needed. That said, Henderson has a very high batting average when it comes to reporting upcoming hardware from Sony. He has correctly reported on the INZONE line of peripherals, the Pulse Explore wireless earbuds, the DualSense Edge controller, and more, making him a very reliable source for PlayStation-related hardware news.
