Uncharted 4 PS4 Pro 4K vs. 1080p Screenshot Comparison Shows Similar Visuals With Sharper IQ

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End has received a brand new update today that adds support for 4K resolution as well as HDR for the displays that support it. This update can be already download from the PlayStation Network while you can read more details about it from here.

While PS4 Pro won’t be out until November 10th, one lucky user has already managed to grab one from a retail store and he has shared some direct-feed screenshots of Uncharted 4 running at 4K resolution. Unfortunately it is hard to see the effect of 4K resolution on a display without seeing it live in person.

Despite the huge jump in pixel density, the visual quality appears to remain the same which is great to see because the game is now rendering at a higher resolution without any sacrifices. The increased pixels mean that the image quality is now sharper and jaggies will be significantly reduced once viewed on a 4K TV.

It won’t be easy to see the difference here between both versions of the game, aside from the leap in resolution from 1080p to 2160p, but if we take a closer look, we can appreciate the sharper IQ of the 4K screenshots.

Since each of the PS4 Pro supported game will have two different rendering modes, one with improved visuals while the other with 4K rendering, it remains to be seen what kind of upgrades Naughty Dog has implemented for the 1080p mode on PS4 Pro, which includes Supersampling in addition to slightly improved visuals.

Let us know what you have to say regarding the difference between 4K and 1080p on the PS4 Pro in the comments below.
