PlayStation 5 Pro specs have leaked online, and it sounds like a considerable upgrade for the new-gen console.

Rumours of a PlayStation 5 Pro have swirled for some time now, with reports of an incredibly hefty price point and a 2024 release date. Given the increasingly likely looking PlayStation 5 Slim, which appeared online earlier this month, the PS5 Pro can't be far behind.

Take a look at upcoming PlayStation 5 RPG Baldur's Gate 3 below!

According to a new report from RedGamingTech (RGT), the PlayStation 5 Pro sounds like a considerable upgrade from the standard PS5. Not surprising, of course, but there looks to be some substantial differences.

There's an awful lot of tech-heavy talk in the report (obviously), but we'll do our best to break it down for you. Most notably, the PS5 Pro's CPU and GPU are rumoured to be significantly higher than the standard PS5 model. The leak hints at frequencies of “well over 3.6 GHz” for the CPU and 2.7 GHz for the GPU. For comparison, the standard PS5 packs a variable CPU boost frequency of 3.5 GHz 2.23 GHz GPU. RGT goes on to speculate - emphasis on speculate - that the PS5 Pro could boast a total compute of roughly 23.04+ TFLOPS.

What does all of this actually equate to, you may well ask? The biggest boosts from this improved power would be more stable 60fps at 4K resolutions (so no more choosing between framerate and performance modes) and even 8K resolution options and enhanced graphical features like accelerated ray-tracing.

This more or less lines up with other, earlier reports on the PS5 Pro have to say. Take all this with a pinch of salt until Sony officially unveils the console, of course, but given the existence of the PlayStation 4 Pro and Slim models, we wouldn't be surprised if we're treated to a mid-gen hardware upgrade. And by treated I mean expected to fork out hundreds of pounds.
