Get ready for the latest PS5 Pro leaks! RedGamingTech has just released another captivating video packed with exciting specification details. While some of these new revelations may seem contradictory to his previous post about the upgraded console, it only adds to the thrill and anticipation surrounding this highly anticipated release. Stay tuned for more updates! . One of the most significant potential changes on the horizon is the development of a custom Viola APU for the PS5 Pro by Sony. While there were previous expectations of a Zen 4-based CPU component, industry expert Paul Eccleston (RedGamingTech) suggests that Zen 2 is now considered to be the more probable option. This evolution in hardware could have a profound impact on the performance and capabilities of the console. According to the channel host’s opinion, Sony had considered various designs for the Pro model, including one based on Zen 4. However, it is believed that having a Zen 2 8c/16t CPU with a clock rate of nearly 4 GHz would be adequate since it may not be the most crucial element of the console.
By allowing Sony to prioritize the GPU aspect of the APU, it aligns perfectly with the PS5 Pro’s purpose as a gaming console. This strategic move makes complete sense, as confirmed by Kepler, a reliable source in leaked information, who has provided some valuable details about the form of the GPU. In a recent post on X platform, an intriguing statement was made: “[8 7][8 7]?” This configuration suggests that the processor of the upcoming PS5 Pro might feature a GPU with 32 WGPs (workgroup processors), but two of them could be disabled, resulting in an active count of 30 WGPs (equivalent to 60 CUs). This exciting revelation hints at enhanced processing power and potential performance improvements for the highly anticipated console.
According to Eccleston, there is potential for the GPU to operate at an impressive clock speed range of 2,500 MHz to 2,800 MHz. This would translate into a remarkable compute performance of 19.2 TFLOPs (at a 2,500 MHz clock) up to 21.5 TFLOPs (at a 2,800 MHz clock), thanks to the inclusion of 30 WGPs. These promising figures suggest that the PS5 Pro has the capability to deliver twice the level of performance compared to its predecessor, the PS5 (which offers 10.28 TFLOPs).
While some of the information may sound familiar, there are exciting new developments to look forward to this time around. One noteworthy aspect is the introduction of the RDNA 3.5 architecture and an impressive 16 GB RAM onboard. These enhancements promise improved performance and a seamless user experience. The claim regarding the PS5 Pro chip’s capability of having 96 ROPs is currently a subject of debate. The same source now suggests that it could possibly be 64, 96, or even 128 ROPs. This raises the exciting possibility of multiple PS5 Pro models being released in the future.
Eccleston shares interesting insights about the PS5 Pro’s SSD, mentioning that it has been modified. Although the specific changes are unknown at this point – whether it’s speed, capacity, or other aspects – this news adds to the anticipation. In fact, the leaker even goes as far as comparing the anticipated PlayStation 5 Pro to a powerful mid to high-range PC. This further builds excitement for what could be a remarkable gaming experience.
