Rumor: PS5 Pro is 45% faster than the base model and up to 3 times faster in ray tracing, will support resolutions up to 8K

According to rumors circulating online, the PlayStation 5 Pro’s rendering will be approximately 45% faster than the base model, and its ray tracing performance will be 2-3 times faster than the original console.



In a new video, Moore’s Law is Dead shared a purported document that provides new information about the hardware upgrade for Sony’s current generation console.


The PS5 Pro will have three key features, including a larger GPU with faster system memory that will deliver up to 45% faster rendering compared to the base model, and an improved ray tracing architecture that will deliver up to 2-3x faster performance – in some cases. cases up to four times better performance than the original PlayStation 5. There will also be a powerful custom machine learning architecture supporting 300 TOPS of 8-bit compute and 67 TFLOPS of 16-bit floating point, which will be used for the Spectral Super Resolution upscaler.


The alleged PlayStation 5 Pro document provides further details about the PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution. This resolution upscaling technology will use PlayStation machine learning to perform super-resolution processing on input data to create color buffers with the current maximum support for 4K resolution. Planned updates will also introduce support for resolutions up to 8K.


As for how the PlayStation 5 Pro resolution upscaling solution will work, the document states that a machine learning-enhanced version of Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TAA) will replace native anti-aliasing or temporal upscaling, with inputs similar to NVIDIA DLSS and AMD FSR, and with full HDR support. The technology will also use pre-trained parameters so it won’t need training for each game, will use approximately 250MB of memory and will take about 2ms to upscale from 1080p to 2160p.


While the leaked document appears plausible, as some of the contents are consistent with other PlayStation 5 Pro rumors, it’s still worth being skeptical.
