With the latest report of the in-development PlayStation 5 (PS5) Pro, codenamed “Project Trinity”, fans have been eager to know more about what Sony has in store for the console. According to a new rumor from Zuby_Tech, a new PS5 model will feature two key tech improvements.

According to Zuby Tech, the new model will feature a 5nm APU compared to the 7nm APU in the launch system. In addition, it’ll feature no liquid metal.

Why that matters is that it signals the new PS5 model will (hopefully) run cooler during use. A 5nm APU also means less energy consumption, less thermal output, smaller die sizes, and ultimately faster computing power. All of which will make it a more efficient console.

It’s unclear if these improvements are for the new model set to likely replace the standard PS5 or if they are for the PS5 Pro.

With the new Pro model in development, that system will feature 30 WGP and 18000 Mt/s memory, making it a faster system.
