In a brand new DF Direct Special we find Alex, Rich and Oliver confirming the leaked technical specifications for Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 5 Pro console, we talk you through what the various spec points mean in terms of the gameplay experience, we go deep on ray tracing and machine learning-based upscaling and we reveal some new information about the new console based on recent developer disclosures.

NOTE: ROG Ally actually uses Zen 4 architecture – not Zen 3 – which makes the point about the lack of perceivable improvement over Steam Deck’s Zen 2 even more pertinent.
