Sony recently removed a video that disclosed specifications for the yet-to-be-announced PS5 Pro console. The initial leak came from YouTuber Moore's Law is Dead last month, and it featured full specifications for the system.

The leaked was verified by IGN, who stated that the paper came from Sony Interactive Entertainment's Developer Network. However, the Moore's Law is Dead video that revealed these findings is no longer available. Visitors to the page are met with a warning saying the video "is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Sony Interactive Entertainment."

The reasons behind Sony's removal of the video remain unclear. While it appears to be an attempt to prevent sensitive information leaks, other motivations may be at play. It's possible that using copyrighted material in the video generated a content match, leading to a manual or automated takedown request.

Moore's Law has yet to comment on the removal of the video or explain the reasons for Sony's decision. Any developments in this subject will be reported as they occur.

According to the leaked video, which is based on internal Sony documentation, the PS5 Pro's CPU will be similar to the normal PS5. However, the new console is likely to include a 'High CPU Frequency Mode,' which will boost the CPU by 10% to 3.85GHz while slightly lowering GPU performance by about 1%.

Additionally, reports indicate that the improved console will be available by the end of 2024. The GPU of the PS5 Pro is expected to have 33.5 teraflops, a huge improvement over the PS5's 10.28 teraflops. It is important to note, however, that this is not a guarantee that the console will be more powerful than its predecessor by three times.

Stay tuned for more updates on the PlayStation 5 Pro and any formal announcements from Sony.
