PS4 Pro: A new boost mode further increases its capabilities

PS4 Pro Boost Mode Will Speed Up Older Games

"Games with The frequency of refresh is variable can benefit from a better fluidity and the loading times can also decrease in some cases ". You are able to turn off Boost Mode and play the game regularly, however. Sony PlayStation's lead hardware architect Mark Cerny has always denied the possibility of improvements on non-PS4 optimized games, but it seems Sony has reconsidered its stance on the matter.

The next PlayStation firmware update, now available in beta form, allows the PS4 Pro to use its full power to improve the performance of titles which have not yet been patched.

In a broader sense, Boost Mode should establish the PS4 Pro as the only version of the console worth owning.

For a look at the performance boost this new feature will reportedly provide, check out this comparison video from YouTube user Noel Underson that offers a look at The Evil Within running with and without Boost Mode.

The new mode has yet to be confirmed by Sony, although it has said that external hard drive support will feature on PS4 and Pro consoles in the 4.5 firmware update. You can also move games now installed on your PS4 hard drive to the external drive.

This has enabled many players to get into the beta and try out the mode for themselves.

The design is nearly identical to the PS4 Slim, only with what appears to be an extra "layer" added on top of it.

Some more details on the mode itself first.

Not every title supports 4K, however, and it's up to the developers to choose how they utilise the console's extra performance. The PS4 Pro has roughly double the graphics power of the standard model.
