Sony’s next major PlayStation 4 firmware includes a new system setting, Boost Mode, that reportedly enables the PlayStation 4 Pro to deliver better performance for games that don’t explicitly support the beefier console.
This will be great for Until Dawn which regularly runs around 28fps.
Several games are running better on the boost mode. Just cause 3 is stable, evil within the biggest to see a boost. Yakuza 0 is stable (it doesnt have pro setting because it releases in japan way before pro)
Just Cause 3 being stable is a big thing for me, I'll stop playing that game now until I get my Pro next month :)
Could use the boost in Arkham Knight, framerate drops noticeably when things get crazy like crashing through stuff in the batmobile
I think it runs pretty good, hardly one of the culprit games for frame rat issues.

Great option, but since the firmware isn't coming out right now, can't they also add support for 4K vids from an HDD in the meantime? I'm also a little concerned this could melt my PS4 Pro's" internal organs" if used too intensively, so I prob won't be using it too much.
