Late last year, Sony President and CEO Kenichiro Yoshida confirmed that a next-generation PlayStation is in development, and Mark Cerny, chief architect of the upcoming console, has been working hard on the PS5 ever since.
Earlier console launches suggested that a standard PS5 machine would be released first, followed soon by a slimmed-down model, and a few years later a revised Pro version.
However, a new rumor has surfaced saying that Sony will be tracking the PS5 base model at the same time as launching the PlayStation 5 Pro.
Japanese game journalist Zenji Nishikawa called this Wccftech This is what Nishikawa claimed in a new video on his YouTube channel, and while this is not usually considered a rock-solid lead, he has in the past made his predictions for PS4 Pro and Switch Lite proved correct.
] According to Nishikawa, the PS5 Pro costs about $ 1
Of course, it's hard to imagine what a "Pro" version of the PlayStation 5 might look like, as the confirmed specifications of the base model already indicate that it is a beast. Announcing the PS5, Cerny announced that it will offer 8K TV support, an 8-core AMD chipset based on the third-generation Ryzen architecture, a Radeon Navi family-based GPU, ray-tracing Feature, SSD storage system and backward compatibility with PS4 games and PSVR hardware.
The launch of the PlayStation 5 is expected in 2020 -2021.
