Yesterday was one of those days. With Apple launching the new iPhone 7 there could be no other news. But apparently there was and it was great news for the gamer’s out there. Sony had also announced the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 4 Pro on the exact day and they are looking awesome. Sony has kept the classic design with a few tweaks here and there. Let’s see what they have to offer this time.
The new PlayStation 4 is a slimmer version of the classic PS4 with a dimension of 11.3 x 10.4 x 1.5 (inches). It has an AMD Jaguar x86-64 8 Core processor with an AMD Radeon 1.84 TFLOPs GPU. 8GB GDDR5 RAM and 500GB or 1 TB of internal storage. It has a maximum power consumption of 165w. The new PS4 comes with an updated version of the DualShock 4 controller.
The PlayStation 4 Pro aka the PlayStation Neo has a dimension of 11.6 x 12.8 x 2.1 (inches). Right from the top we can see the difference in size. It has an AMD x86-64 Jaguar 8 core processor with an AMD 4.20 TFLOPS GPU and a Radeon based graphics engine. 8GB GDDR5 RAM and 1 TB of internal storage. It has a maximum power consumption of 310W. Lot of things are jacked up in the PS4 Pro. The output is now of 4K and HDR resolution. GPU has gone up more than double, CPU Clock Rate has been boosted up.
At the launch the chief architect for the PS4, Mark Cerny said, “PS4 Pro is not intended to blur the line between console generations, instead, the vision is to take the PS4 experience to extraordinary new levels.”
Mark Cerny also showed off 4K game footage of Spider-Man and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. So they are assuring that it is not just the console that has been updated. The games are now going to be as great resolution wise as ever. Games like UNCHARTED 4: A Thief’s End, The Last Guardian, Star Wars Battlefront and my favorite Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare will be compatible with the new features of the PS4 and the PS4 Pro.
The new PS4 will be coming out later this month on September 15th. The PS4 Pro on the other hand will be out on November 10th, 2016. The new PlayStation 4 will have a price tag of $299.99 and the PlayStation 4 Pro will have a price tag of $399.99 and it is up for preorder now.
