Sony has shared the technical specifications of PS4 Pro, which doubles the GPU of the original PS4 and improves a little of its CPU.


Sony has revealed the technical specifications of PS4 Pro, the newly announced console during the PlayStation Meeting yesterday that we came to know previously as PS4 Neo.

This new hardware has several best aspect with respect to the original PS4 that allows you to display better graphics and use a higher resolution with a minimal jump in its price.

You check out the full technical specifications of the PS4 Pro below:

There are two points to keep in mind to understand the power of the new console. On the one hand, the CPU, which is very similar to the original PS4 and might even be considered the same, but with an overclock. The power gained in this section is only 30%.

However, with regard to the GPU, PS4 Pro is twice as potent than its predecessor, with 4.2 Teraflops gross power. This is what allows the best graphics and better resolution, but, on paper, it is not enough to show 4K graphics natively.

We suspect that a very sophisticated scaling is used instead, which does not have to be much worse.

In the other sections, it is basically the same console: the same RAM and disk drive, an extra rear USB compared to other PS4 and a more powerful and efficient Wifi. It also has Bluetooth 4.0, which should help spend less battery on devices operating with this standard.
