Sony reveals PS4 Pro

Sony revealed the PS4 Pro at last night’s Playstation press conference. Formerly known as the Neo, the Pro will stand alongside the ‘regular’ PS4, and will play the same games, but is capable of 4K and HDR.

This boost in graphic fidelity is owed to improved CPU clock speed (it still uses the same AMD Jaguar x86-64 8 Core processor) and a hike in GPU power – graphically, it’s more than twice as powerful as the PS4 (4.2 TFLOPs vs. 1.84 TFLOPs)

It also comes with a 1TB hard drive, and is slightly larger than the original PS4 (Pro: 11.6 x 12.8 x 2.1 // PS4: 11.3 x 10.4 x 1.5)

If you already own a PS4 and are thinkng of upgrading, fear not. Playstation's Mark Cerny says PS4 Pro will "provide a number of mechanisms for easily transferring your game library and entitlements from the standard model to the new console".

Several games that have already been released will be able to make use of the PS4 Pro’s 4K and HDR updates, including Uncharted 4, CoD: Black Ops 3 and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Surprisingly though, despite 4k gaming output and streaming from nerflix etc., there will be no Ultra HD Blu-ray support.

The PS4 Pro will be released November 10 for £349.
