PlayStation 4 Pro Revealed

By Brandon Fusco,
The long rumored PlayStation 4 Neo has been officially been unveiled as the PlayStation 4 Pro in order to better distringuish it from the basic PS4.

The PlayStation 4 Pro will have many of the same features that the original PlayStation 4 has, and will play the same games without the need for a different disk or an extra download. It will support graphically rendered or upscaled 4K output, including video from streaming services such as YouTube and Netflix. Much like the original PS4 and newer slim model, the Pro will support High Dynamic Range through a firmware update for those with displays that support the technology.

While the CPU will remain largely the same, albeit overclocked, the GPU has jumped from 1.84 TFLOPS to 4.2 TFLOPS. It will retain the optical audio output that the slim model is dropping, and adds a third USB port to support the upcoming PlayStation VR. Other ports and features will remain the same, such as the Ethernet port, AUX port, Bluetooth 4.0 support, and wireless IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, but the HDMI port has been upgraded to add support for 4K video.

The base model of the PlayStation 4 Pro will come with a 1TB Hard Drive and will release on November 10, 2016 in Japan, North America and Europe 44,980 yen, US$399, €399 and £349.
