Sony plans to launch PlayStation 5 Pro between 2023 and 2024
Sony generally begins to improve the design after a period of time after the release of the next-generation game console. In most cases, the size will be reduced, and CPUs and GPUs manufactured by new processes will be used to reduce costs and power consumption. It was previously reported that there may be a new version of PlayStation 5 in the second or third quarter of 2022. Its customized SoC will be manufactured on a 6nm process from the 7nm of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Such news is not surprising.
What’s different from what PlayStation 4 Pro did at the time is that PlayStation 5 Pro may have a greater leap in performance. It is rumored that Sony may choose a new CPU and GPU architecture, and use TSMC’s 5nm process manufacturing, TDP will exceed 300W. Compared with the 6nm or 7nm process, the cost of a 5nm process node is much higher. PlayStation 5 Pro will make full use of AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) technology to adapt to 8K resolution games.
