As expected, earlier today Sony announced the PlayStation 4 Pro. A more powerful PlayStation 4 that offers up double the GPU power, a faster CPU, and a 1TB hard-drive as standard. The unit is also not that far away with a launch date of November 10 and a price tag of $559.95. Click through for more details, and specs.
Following on from the announcement Sony revealed the PlayStation 4 specs which you can peruse below.
The new 4.2 TFLOP GPU has been adapted from AMD Polaris graphical architecture. Sony went on to showcase a number of games running on a 4K display including Spider-Man, For Honor, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. The console will also support HDR, alongside the new PS4 Slim and existing PS4 model. Also, existing titles like Uncharted 4 will also benefit from higher resolutions. The improvements that come with the PS4 Pro aren't limited to 4K displays as those with 1080P TVs will also benefit from improved visuals. Sony mentioned that a number of developers are already working on patches to take advantage of the hardware. EA has already confirmed that its upcoming games, like Fifa 17, Battlefield 1, and Mass Effect: Andromeda will all take advantage of the extra GPU and CPU power of the unit.
The only thing that seems to be missing is a lack of a 4K Blu-ray drive. But 4K streaming for services like Netflix will be available.
