As anticipation builds for the upcoming PS5 Pro, Insider Gaming has obtained exclusive details about the requirements developers must meet to earn the coveted 'PS5 Pro Enhanced' label. Let's dive into what this means for the gaming community.

The 'Enhanced' Legacy

The concept of an 'Enhanced' label traces back to the PlayStation 4 Pro era. Back then, it signified games that harnessed the Pro console's improved hardware to deliver enhanced frame rates and resolutions. Now, with the PS5 Pro on the horizon, the stakes are higher.

What Does 'PS5 Pro Enhanced' Entail?

For a game to earn the 'PS5 Pro Enhanced' label, it must offer an exclusive graphics mode that combines:

  • Upscaled resolution to 4K using PSSR (PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution)
  • A constant 60 frames per second (FPS)
  • Ray tracing effects (either adding or enhancing existing ones)

Behind the Scenes

Insider Gaming received documents revealing that the PS5 Pro's faster RAM (28% speed boost) and a significantly larger GPU (67% larger than the standard console) make this possible. In fact, the PS5 Pro is 45% faster overall than its predecessor, with double the rendering speed.

Additional Enhancements

Games may also earn the 'PS5 Pro Enhanced' label if they offer any of the following:

  • Increased target resolution for fixed-resolution titles
  • Higher maximum resolution for variable-resolution titles
  • Improved frame rate for fixed-frame-rate titles
  • Inclusion of PS5 Pro Raytracing effects

Expert Insights

Notably, tech expert Richard Leadbetter suggests that while demanding games like GTA 6 may not achieve 60 FPS on the PS5 Pro due to CPU limitations, the overall enhancements promise an exciting future for gaming.


The 'PS5 Pro Enhanced' label represents a commitment to pushing boundaries and delivering an unparalleled gaming experience. Stay tuned for more updates as we approach the PS5 Pro's release!
