Sony’s Project Trinity is alleged PlayStation 5 Pro
As per Keytogaming, Sony is in the final stages of developing an upgraded version of the PlayStation 5 console, commonly known as the PS5 Pro. This new console is internally referred to as “Trinity,” following Sony’s tradition of using codenames from The Matrix franchise for their gaming products, such as “Neo” for the PlayStation 5 Pro and “Morpheus” for PlayStation VR.
According to recent rumors, some of which were shared exclusively with Keytogaming by Tom Henderson, a known PlayStation and gaming-related content leaker, the development of the console began in early 2022, and Sony is already preparing demos for major studios. The expectation is that development kits will be sent out to these studios by November of this year, with potential release the following year.
Regarding hardware details, the new console is rumored to feature 30 WorkGroup Processors (WGP), which refers to large clusters of GPU cores as per AMD’s terminology. This would be the equivalent of 60 Compute Units compared to PlayStation 5 featuring 36. Additionally, the GPU memory is said to operate at 18 Gbps, an upgrade over PS5’s 14 Gbps. Unfortunately, there is no information on memory specs such as capacity or the bus width.
PlayStation 5 Pro Details via Keytogaming, Tom Henderson, Kepler:
- Console Codename: Project Trinity
- SoC Codename: Viola
- In development since early 2022
- Dev kits going out in November
- GPU: 30 WGP and 18000 MT/s Memory
- Accelerated Ray-Tracing
- Targeting November 2024 Release
Speculations also suggest potential support for 8K gaming and high-framerate 4K gameplay. Notably, AMD is working on its FSR3 (FidelityFX Super Resolution 3) technology, which is expected to provide twice the performance of FSR2. This advancement could open up new possibilities for game developers, allowing them to add more graphical fidelity and incorporate technologies like ray tracing. Furthermore, It is possible that the new console may incorporate the newer AMD RDNA architecture, such as RDNA3 or RDNA3.5, further boosting the processor’s capabilities.
According to hardware leaker Kepler_L2 claims that the processor for the upcoming PlayStation console has the codename “Viola”.
Viola is AMD's codename for the PS5 Pro SoC, for those wondering 😉

Last year, TCL, a home electronics and TV maker, publicly mentioned the PlayStation 5 Pro, stating that the next version of Xbox and PlayStation should support 8K content at 60-120 FPS and offer performance equivalent to the Radeon RX 7700 XT graphics card. However, both AMD and TCL have not provided any additional details, and the RX 7700XT remains only a topic of speculation.
Worth adding that AMD is already working on a next-gen and high-end SoC known as Strix Halo or Sarlak. The processor is said to feature up to 16 Zen5 cores and 20WGP/40CU GPU cores based on RDNA3.5 architecture.
