PS5 Pro targets 8K gaming
Trusted Permit Tom Henderson from Indoor games, which has accurately reported on the Q handheld controller and DualSense Edge, predicts a release date for the PS5 Pro in 2024. It suggests that developer kits will start shipping this November. While writing for the website Key to Gaming, Henderson revealed detailed facts about the development and specifications of the PS5’s more powerful sibling. The release of this console will be a big push towards the standardization of 8K and constant 60 FPS at 4K resolution.
PS5 Pro specs revealed
Although it’s hard to get exact numbers, sources have stated that the PS5 Pro will come with 18,000 MT/s of memory and 30 WGP (workgroup processor). It says the new system will aim for more stable frame rates at 4K resolution and will have a “new performance mode” for 8K resolution along with “accelerated ray tracing”.
This news has raised a lot of eyebrows as there aren’t many people who can afford that show currently. Therefore, the market they are targeting with this powerful device is quite narrow.
Henderson claims that Sony has already started hosting demo events for the PS5 Pro, which has been codenamed “Project Trinity” to match other Matrix-inspired codenames the corporation has used in the past, such as “Neo” for the PS4 Pro and “Morpheus” for the first PlayStation VR.
Rumored PS5 Pro release date
The many rumors we’ve seen spread over the past few years can be explained by the fact that the PS5 Pro has reportedly been in development since early 2022. According to Henderson, most game developers should receive their devices by November 2023.
When asked when the PS5 Pro would be available for purchase, he replied: “Whether a PlayStation 5 Pro console is desired enough in the current market remains to be seen, but as of this writing, the PlayStation 5 Pro is in development and targeting a November 2024 release date.”
Rumored PS5 Pro price
The likely cost and timing of Sony’s official reveal of their updated PlayStation hardware are still unknown. We predict the PS5 Pro will cost more than the standard PS5, but exactly how much more is still up in the air.
By comparison, the original PS4 was priced at $399 when it launched in 2016; later, it was reduced to $299. On the other hand, even three years after its debut, the basic PS5 remains the same price. Therefore, it seems likely that the PS5 Pro will not be priced the same as the original model, especially given all the advancements inside its exterior that are said to be included.
Rumors of a possible release of a more powerful version of the PS5 have us all rubbing our hands with excitement. Uncertainty surrounds whether 8K gaming will become the norm for the current generation or the ultimate luxury. Despite widespread concerns about hardware affordability, it’s high time we celebrate the advancements gaming consoles have made over the years.
