The GPU, boasting 33.5 teraflops, enables enhanced rendering and superior ray tracing compared to the standard 10.28 teraflops on the PS5, according to an IGN report.

Digital Foundry’s Rich Leadbetter suggests a 30fps cap for GTA 6 on the PS5 Pro, mirroring the standard PS5’s expected performance in a DF Direct latest show. The modest CPU enhancement of the PS5 Pro limits the possibility of a 60fps option, barring unforeseen programming feats.
