It has been a year since the PS5 has been released, but fans are still looking for ways to have the Sony console as it remains difficult to purchase due to high demand and low supply. Luckily, Sony Interactive Entertainment is expected to release an upgraded version of it, the PS5 Pro, in the next couple of years.

Several rumors have been circulating online that the new console will have more than 4K resolution.

PS5 Pro Specs and Hardware

According to Game Revolution, the PS5 Pro is rumored to feature a new AMD APU as well as an updated CPU or GPU. The said new processor is claimed to be faster than the PS5's AMD Zen 2-based CPU, which only operates at 3.5GHz.

Meanwhile, Cnet added to the speculation that it is possible to have RDNA 3-architecture GPUs and a Zen 4 architecture for the new console, which will greatly support possible 8K gameplay.

In addition to the said rumor, reputable YouTuber Moore's Law is Dead previously released a video explaining in detail the things to expect on the new PS5 Pro. He speculated that the console could be advertised based on its 8K-resolution together with Sony's 8K TVs. The YouTuber added that this 8K gaming resolution is not that a fascinating upgrade, in which Tom's Guide agreed that a faster frame rate is much better.

Keep in mind that Sony has not released a statement confirming these speculations.

However, Tom's Guide also hypothesized that the PS5 Pro could have a similarity with PS4 Pro when it comes to rendering. The new console will probably use a checkerboard rendering and up-mixing method to produce an 8K resolution from a rendered low-resolution one.
