EXCLUSIVE – PS5 Pro Enhanced Requirements Detailed

With the soon-to-be-announced PS5 Pro expected to hit shelves later this year, Insider Gaming has learned of the developer requirements that need to be met to have the ‘PS5 Pro Enhanced’ label. Internally, this is currently called the ‘Trinity Enhanced’ label, but for the sake of SEO, we’ll be referring to it as ‘PS5 Pro Enhanced’ moving forward.

The ‘Enhanced’ label first made its introduction into the PlayStation ecosystem following the release of the PlayStation 4 Pro, which meant that the game utilized the Pro console’s improved hardware to offer improved frame rates and resolutions. For the PS5 Pro PlayStation wants games to offer a PS5 Pro-exclusive graphics mode that will combine:

  • PSSR to upscale resolution to 4K
  • A constant 60FPS
  • Add or increase ray tracing effects

According to documents sent to Insider Gaming, this is possible because of faster RAM (28% faster) and a faster GPU that is 67% larger than the standard console (45% faster) – You can read more PS5 Pro specs here. Playstation says these combined make the Pro 45% faster than the standard PlayStation 5 and can provide twice the rendering speed of the standard console.

PlayStation goes on to continue that games may also be given the ‘PS5 Pro Enhanced’ label if they offer any of the following enhancements:

  • Increased target resolution for titles that run a fixed resolution on the standard console
  • Increased target maximum resolution for titles that run at variable resolution on the standard console
  • Increased target frame rate for titles that target a fixed frame rate on the standard console
  • Inclusion of PS5 Pro Raytracing effects

For high-demanding games like GTA 6, tech expert and Digital Foundry founder Richard Leadbetter has said that people shouldn’t expect GTA 6 to run at 60FPS on the PS5 Pro. Leadbetter’s analysis is primarily based on the Pro’s CPU, which will be identical to the standard system with a 10% increase in GHz.

  1. “PS5 PRO ENHANCED require a constant 60FPS, add or increase ray tracing effects”

    It is not possible. CPU on PS5 Po is 10% faster than on standard PS5

    PS5 – 3.5 GHz
    Xbox Series S – 3.6 GHz
    Xbox Series X – 3.8 GHz
    PS5 Pro – 3.85 GHz

    1. These Ponies will believe anything. It’s all built on the Ryzen 2 and RDNA. And it can’t even do full RDNA 2 because it can’t access all the Direct X features

    2. omg, you hear some nonsense from DF and parrot it? 99% of games on PS5 can run natively at 1080p60fps, they are always and only those 2 poorly optimized ones that with that botlenek CPU don’t add anything more in terms of quality than what we had on PS4

  2. Because the GPU does not do everything for the fluidity of a game, it is a harmony between the CPU, the GPU and the monitor to find, among other things.

  3. I think they should stop talking nonsense about the cpu when only 2 games don’t run at 1080p 60 fps because they are poorly optimized, even the ps4 had games with better quality in the use of the cpu.

  4. Ps5 pro with that specs will have to run 60 to 120 fps and unlocked on fps for people to spend another 600 but will see when release date is ps5 is awesome they haven’t unlocked full potential yet so ps5 pro will have to be a lot better in graphics speed etc
