After the launch of the PlayStation 5, today we have first report about its more powerful version, the PlayStation 5 Pro. This information comes from Sony itself, specifically from an official Sony Interactive Entertainment patent that describes a console with a Dual-GPU configuration, that is, with two GPU Cores inside.
The patent describes a “scalable game console” where “a second GPU communicatively coupled to the first GPU” and that is designed “for home consoles and cloud gaming.”
Sony’s official patent states that “plural SoCs ” can be used to bring to life a ” high-end ” version of the console “with greater processing and storage capacity “, while “the high-end system can also contain more memory, such as RAM and other features, and can also be used for an optimized version in the cloud using the same chip in the console with more performance. ” Looking at the design of the patent, seems like GPU based on a chiplet design just like AMD Ryzen processors, but in the form of two SoCs.
Sony is refering to the design that includes a high-performance SoC to run games locally, and a low-energy SoC designed to run games from the cloud, and that if necessary, both can work in unison for better performance in local games that require it.
Unlike Microsoft, where all the rumors already warned of two new generation consoles that would arrive at the same time, and the information was true, in the case of Sony this PlayStation 5 Pro will arrive in the future.
We also remind you that, between the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro the launch period gap is three years, but knowing that these consoles would have a lower life span, we can say that in next two years, Sony will launch PlayStation 5 pro.
