An exclusive report on the upcoming PS5 Slim and PS5 Pro versions has just been published by DukeBlueBall, a well-known leaker in the gaming industry. According to the source, the PS5 Slim will feature an 8-core Zen4/5 CPU running at 4-5GHz and a 36CUs RDNA3/4 GPU running at 2.5-3GHz. The GPU will also have 11.5-14T floating point and 2-3 times faster ray tracing performance than the PS5. The console will have 16GB of GDDR6 memory with 576GB/s and 18GB/s bandwidth.
The PS5 Slim will include a 1TB solid state drive with performance comparable to the current PS5 model. It is expected to cost between $399 and $499, with a profit margin of between $100 and $200. According to the leak, gamers looking for a cheaper way to enjoy the latest technologies could opt for the PS5 Slim.
The PS5 Pro, on the other hand, will feature an 8-core Zen4/5 CPU running at 4-5GHz and a 72CUs RDNA3/4 GPU running at 2.5GHz. The GPU will also have a 22.5T floating point, which is double the current performance of the PS5. A total of 16GB of GDDR6/GDDR6x memory with a bandwidth of 24GB/s and 768GB/s will be included in the PS5 Pro.
Like the PS5 Slim, the PS5 Pro will include a 1TB solid state drive with comparable performance to the PS5. It is expected to cost between $499 and $599, with a break-even or slightly negative margin. This means that the PS5 Pro will be a more expensive choice for those looking for the best performance.

However, the information that has been leaked provides a window into Sony’s approach to its upcoming platform launches. When the PS5 Slim and PS5 Pro are unveiled, gamers can expect to benefit from the latest innovations and performance enhancements.
