The PS5 Pro will go on sale in April 2023 with liquid cooling.

While the PS5 has been around for just over 2 years, Sony is now gearing up for a brand new model. According to a source familiar with the matter, it will arrive in just a few weeks.

An anonymous source just gave us interesting information about the next home console from Sony. According to her, the Japanese giant should bring the new PS5 model to the market as early as April 2023, about two and a half years after the release of the original version at the end of 2020.

Our leaker says this is a Pro model and not the “slim” version we’ve been hearing about for months now. If this is indeed a Pro model, this probably means that we can expect an increase in console performance, and therefore a new chip from AMD. However, it’s still too early to tell what to expect in terms of power.

PS5 Pro comes with a brand new cooling system.

In addition to increased performance, the source reveals that the main novelty of the Pro version is at the cooling level. The PS5 is currently cooled by a liquid metal compound, which has recently been the subject of controversy, as well as a fan.

However, Sony should replace this system with a new generation of liquid-cooled, or “water-cooled” systems commonly found in some gaming PCs. Therefore, we can expect better heat management, which will not be a rejection of console cooling if the chip is more powerful. Changing the cooling system could also lead to a design change, but again, we’ll have to wait for details on that.

PS5 Pro should not overshadow PS5

In anticipation of the new model, Sony planned to sell its PS5 stocks. As a reminder, Sony recently said that the food shortage is over and it should be easier for you to get a copy. However, the two models should not compete with each other and could coexist, as was the case with the PS4 and PS4 Pro. First of all, it’s highly likely that the PS5 Pro will sell for a lot more than the PS5. Finally, there is no guarantee that the PS5 Pro will be produced in sufficient quantity to meet demand, especially when we are aware of the current shortage of electronic components. Then we will find ourselves in the same scenario as the PS5 released in 2020.

One last clarification: even if the source that gave us this information has already shown us its reliability in the past, it is obvious that they should be taken with all the necessary tweezers, because Sony has not formalized anything yet, not even the existence of the PS5. Pro. In addition, we are not immune from last-minute changes in the situation on the part of the company. Finally, if the PS5 Pro or slim version goes on sale anytime soon, the Japanese firm will likely announce it, as usual, via State-Of-Play. And no events of this kind are planned yet, so we will have to patiently deal with our problems.
