The PS5 will usher in a new generation of consoles this year – but Sony is apparently not satisfied with that. A new patent now allows assumptions about a PS5 Pro.
The latest Sony patent already seems to usher in a console upgrade, even though the PS5 isn’t even in stores yet. The recently discovered patent describes a console that has multiple Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) while the PS5 has only one APU. The patent also emphasizes the connection to a cloud management server – so it could be Sony’s attack on the “cloud gaming” market.
After the success of the PS4 Pro, an upgrade of the next generation of consoles is quite conceivable, if not to be expected. However, it remains to be seen whether Sony will really use this patent and produce a significantly more powerful console with several APUs and a focus on cloud gaming. As soon as more information is known about the possible appearance of a PS5 Pro, we will of course inform you here.
