It seems that in these times that every console must have a Pro model within his generation. It happened with PS4 (PS4 Pro) and Xbox One (Xbox One X), and although a Switch Pro has been longed for, Nintendo has not been encouraged by it for now. But the one that seems to have it clear again is Sony, since the latest rumors point to the PS5 Pro.
A new PS5 by the end of 2024
From the hand of Insider Gaming we get the first information about the most powerful model of PS5. It’s not a big deal, but it’s a crucial detail: PS5 Pro is in development. This has been reported by sources close to the project, who assure that the scheduled date for the launch of this model is located at end of 2024.
Thus, the date would finally be set for a model that already sounded as soon as the original PS5 was launched, since how could it be otherwise, one of the most powerful consoles we have ever had was not enough to calm the desire for a new generation.
What will the new PS5 Pro offer?
Considering the beast we currently have in stores, what exactly would the PS5 Pro offer? If you have played the current generation, you will have seen how the great triple AAA games let you select between the fidelity and performance modes. These are ultimately default graphics settings with which to deliver two types of experiences: the crisp and smooth 60 fps or the visually stunning with high quality textures and ray tracing.
Ray tracing technology was one of the keys to introducing the new generation of consoles, but as we have seen so far, in most cases it requires sacrificing other graphic qualities. PS5 Pro would arrive to have it all, since as it has been possible to know through a series of patents registered by the very same architect of PlayStation Mark Cerny, where a series of technologies focused on improving the ray tracing experience are explained.
The patent was filed by PS5 architect and Knack creator Mark Cerny, and mentions “System And Method For Accelerated Ray Tracing” and “System And Method For Accelerated Ray Tracing With Asynchronous Operation And Ray Transformation.”#PS5 #PlayStation5 #PlayStation pic.twitter.com/yyjL8SMfRw

Doing a bit of memory, it would be a quite natural jump, since PS4 Pro allowed you to enjoy games at 60 images per second at maximum quality, while PS4 could not with it.
It will not be the only PS5 to hit stores
But in addition to the PS5 Pro, it seems that an earlier release is in Sony’s plans. As they say in Insider Gaming, the brand would be preparing the launch of a PS5 with removable reader, a model that had already been heard about before and that supposedly would land at the end of this 2023. Without notable changes in the internal hardware, the proposal would be none other than to unify the two current proposals on the market and not fragment its user share so much , since those with the drive without a disc reader have lost the opportunity to be able to buy a physical game forever. With this new model, we can always purchase separately USB-C Blu-ray drive which will be sold en pack or separately.
