Sony's beefed-up PlayStation 5 Pro has been all but confirmed through rumors and leaks, but now Sony has filed a copyright claim against Moore's Law is Dead's PS5 Pro video, which has been removed from YouTube.

Moore's Law is Dead covers the PlayStation 5 Pro leaks in his video from mid-March, but it has since been deleted from YouTube. I screenshotted the main Trinity Technical Overview from MLID's video on YouTube, which you can see above, covering the improvements coming with the PlayStation 5 Pro.

Sony filing a copyright claim and having YouTube remove the video kind of confirms the PlayStation 5 Pro. If MLID's claims and rumors were nothing to be worried about... well, Sony would have nothing to be worried about. But having the entire video scrubbed from YouTube is a big step, but thankfully, we've got the receipts in the form of screenshots.

The video may be removed, but all of the details are in the stories that I've covered above and the screenshots both above and below. In the screenshot from MLID's video on the PlayStation 5 Pro, we learned about the PS5 Pro's upcoming PlayStation Spectral Super Resolution (PSSR) which will upscale "PS5 Pro Enhanced" games to 4K and constant 60FPS.

Inside, the new PlayStation 5 Pro will feature an upgraded "Trinity" semi-custom SoC from AMD and fabbed by TSMC, with the GPU being larger -- and providing up to 45% more performance over the PS5 -- with faster 20Gbps GDDR6 memory. There's an RDNA 4 RT engine inside of the new SoC, which will see gigantic 2-3x improvements in ray tracing performance over the standard PS5.

The new Trinity SoC features a custom architecture for machine learning (ML) which is being used by PSSR -- Sony's new upscaling and anti-aliasing solution.

We should expect Sony to make the PlayStation 5 Pro official in the coming months, no matter how many videos the company gets deleted from YouTube.
