Just the other day we were talking about how there is some time till we hear about a new console from Sony. Well, it seems like we were wrong and there are some hype-worthy rumors in the air regarding PS5 Pro. It seems like it is in early stages of development and might bring some exciting new features. So, without any further ado, let’s begin!
Sony PS5 Pro
There is a lot of buzz around any new console that seeks to enter the market. Gamers want to know everything about them! Its time to get excited as according to a rumor PS5 Pro is in early development and might boast an 8K resolution. It might feature a new AMD SOC guaranteeing higher performance and Sony might position it in the premium 4K/8K gaming segment. After all, it is a “PRO” console.
PS5 Pro would look to counter Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S refresh. Xbox Series S Refresh is set to come out in 2022, whereas, Xbox Series X Refresh is slated to launch in 2023.
The new PS console will feature a decent boost in performance and might consist processors based on Zen 4 architecture. It is also being said that it will have RDNA 3 graphic card, so we can expect it only after RDNA 3 is out on PC.
Launch and Pricing
- Rumor has it that PS5 Pro is set to launch in late 2023 or 2024. So even if we believe it, it is still very far away. On a realistic timeline, this is very likely, especially considering the power chip shortages. It might be priced somewhere around USD 700, according to the rumors.
- That’s right, 700 dollars! It’s majorly because it might be positioned in the premium segment and might feature 8K resolution. Current model of PS5 costs USD 499, so we are looking at a 40% increase in price for PS5 Pro.
- Not much of any other information is rumored as of now and we will have to wait for some time to get official information.
- Sony Playstation Showcase 2021 is going live on 9th September 1pm PT but we doubt we’ll hear something about PS5 Pro. Tomorrow is a big day for Sony and we’ll bring you all the information you’ll need from the event.
