Sony has officially revealed the hardware specs of the PS4 Pro. They also confirmed the launch of the PS4 Slim, which will be released on September 15th.
PS4 Pro is an upgraded hardware PS4 that will feature forward and backwards compatibility with every PS4 game. It will be able to render games at native 4K resolution while those games which don’t render at 4K will be able to get a boost in either their performance or visual fidelity.
The full hardware specifications for PS4 Pro can be seen in the image below.
As confirmed by Mark Cerny, the console will feature the same 8-core Jaguar CPU but with an updated clock frequency giving it a boost over the original PS4. The biggest jump will be in the GPU power, which has increased from the 1.84 TFlops of PS4 to 4.2 TFlops for PS4 Neo. This is almost 2x jump in hardware that should result in substantial upgrades for the latest games.
Sony also revealed a list of games that are confirmed to support PS4 Neo. Among them, they showed live stage demos for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Horizon Zero Dawn and Mass Effect.
PS4 Pro is set to release on November 10th and will retail for $399. It supports 4K resolution and HDR in addition to 4K live streaming. Unfortunately, there won’t be any support for 4K bluray playback.
