Sony is rolling out the third update to the PS4 console. In just a few days, we will get the new generation play station, otherwise known as PS4K or PS4.5. The PS4 Pro is not set to replace the launch model. For example, the PS4 Slim rolled out and replaced the original PS4 model. In this case, however, the PS4 Pro is seen as just a smaller and prettier box with some more power.
What is the difference between PS4 Pro and Slim?
The main difference between these two consoles is power. PS4 Pro comes with a faster CPU and more powerful GPU. As a result, the PS4 Pro can offer the 4K resolution to games that have 4K, and can even upscale games that do not support 4K.
PS4 Pro will be able to output games in 4096 x 2160 pixels resolution. You can also stream 4K media, but you cannot play 4K Blu-ray. At the moment, the PS4 Slim can output games in HD, which is 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, and stream photos and videos in 4K.
It is worth noting that there will be no exclusive games for the PS4 Pro. The library stays the same, with the only difference being the enhancement in resolution quality.
PS4 Pro also comes with a built-in HDR support, offering more vibrant colors. Existing PS4 consoles can also get HDR support via a firmware update. However, you also need a television that supports HDR. An HD television set won’t do the trick.
PS4 Price: How much PS4 Pro costs?
All that power and enhancement will come with a price. The base model comes with 1TB of internal space, and the price is set at $399. For comparison, the base 500GB PS4 Slim model costs $299. The 500GB Xbox One is also priced at $299, while the 1TB Xbox One S costs $349.
