The PS4 supports 4K gaming/videos, although games will need to be specifically updated to take advantage of the extra graphical grunt. Noteworthy titles taking advantage of the PS4 Pro include Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, The Last of Us: Remastered and Uncharted 4.
The PS4 Pro will cost R6999, in comparison to the PS4 Slim’s sub-R5500 price point
“Ever since the announcement of the PlayStation 4 Pro we have been overwhelmed by the demand from gamers and it’s with much excitement to get this to them before Christmas, another leap in the world of PlayStation,” said Mario Dos Santos, CEO of Ster Kinekor Entertainment, in the release.
The console features the same octacore Jaguar processor as the standard PS4, but features a clock speed upgrade from 1.6Ghz to 2.1Ghz. Additionally, the GPU department sees the number of compute units leap from 18 to 36, as well as a clock speed boost.
The PS4 Pro is positioned to sit alongside the standard PS4 Slim, which has a recommended price of R5199.
