The original PS4 architecture is intact. In several interviews including the Digital foundry interview with Cerny, he said this is not a next gen console the CPU,RAM and GPU are exactly the same.
The one major difference is the addition of a 2nd identical GPU on the same chip that when Pro Enhanced games are being played the two run in tandem. This is similar to AMD's crossfire running dual GPU's
I think we'll have a year or two max with Sony sticking to parity...
I own a Sony X800D and bought the pro at launch. I had an issue the first day that it would only display HDR content at 1080p/yuv420.
I simply switched to HDMI port two and all was well with the world.
Some manufacturers still go by the input 1 mentality and will usually use the lower spec 1.4a instead of 2.0,since most STB don't output at 4K.
If you do have pro issues simply switch ports and see if that helps.
3D printing an enclosure is some serious dedication........and if I had a 3D printer I would too.
Some devs will be outputting at 1440p checkerboard up to 2160p,but the system itself will support a [email protected]
It will have no improvements to non-Pro supported titles. I am sure the built in upscaler will make a little difference,no improvements to frame rate will be seen.
Sony was an undisputed leader going into the PS3 generation and everyone had already written off MS with their oddly named 360.
Sony introduced the PS3 as a boutique electronics device that would power our lives,but would have to have a second job to afford. Sony and Kutaragi-sans decision to build that product nearly bankrupted the company.
We had an extended lifecycle do to an ailing games market and the AMD SoC was the only that either company would be able to even make a...
Good catch,re-read article and they are in fact 15mm do to stacking of the platters.
I am with you GTgamer. I have mine paid for and Seagate is introducing a 5tb 2.5 HDD for a whopping $85. I have also been checking out some smaller HDD's with a faster 7200rpm.
I have tried both the Last of us and infamous:first light with the HDR update and have been blown away. Infamous is far more impressive,but TLoU will likely be much better running native 4K.
I know it's a stopgap measure and Scorpio will reign over gaming as the new console king,but for now I will be completely happy with my shiny new (matte black that is) console to go nicely with my 4K/HDR display.
I am currently playing through the beginning hour of the game with the HDR update applied and am truly impressed with Sony's HDR implementation. Been switching back and for between w/HDR and wo/HDR and the additional detail brought out is pretty great. More natural colors,contrast is greatly improved and texture quality feel overall better.
I recently purchased an X1 (S) and Preordered my pro on the same day. The S will fill the void missing from the Pro with the inclusion of a UHD Bluray drive. The Pro will give me a taste of what to expect from from Scorpio next fall.
I bought a 4K/HDR XBR display from Sony to take advantage of the upcoming new consoles.
I am glad we have these two tech giants challenging each other,because it will only end up benefitting the consumer.
I am a fanboy of g...
Ratchet is already stunning,but 4K/HDR? Mind melted!
If the price isn't right all the teraflops in the world will not make a difference. All the comments coming from MS currently to not be concerned with the consoles price,but moments later saying that the Scorpio will be priced like a "High end" consumer electronic device.
This could mean we'll be competitive or the PS3 "you'll want to get a second job for this thing."
If you like podcast check out the "gamers with jobs:conference call" podcast. They have guest host from many studios including arkane studios. I feel like they are gonna an announcement for dishonored.
Tactics like this are used throughout the industry. They release a prototype to devs that are marked to help with leaks and make sure they hold to their NDA's. This was never considered as a production model,much like the original Xbox was housed in a 15" tall chrome "X" with a giant lime green logo in the center. That was a prototype never meant to be released.
I am completely interested! Alan wake was a very underrated game that has the misfortune of releasing against Red dead redemption.
I have just finished the Order and kid you not when I say I was floored. The ending made me feel the same level of guilt that I felt at the end of The last of us. This game while not perfect,was perfect for me. It was exactly what I needed from a holiday that saw the release of countless broken games and lack of focus. [email protected] Sony should make sure to secure this franc...
I strongly agree with you. I have reached the airship portion of the game and have been floored by every minute of the game. If you are gonna knock a point off of the game make it for length,because everything else is polished to near perfection. I own both "next gen" systems and have two of the major releases of this generation still a buggy mess AC:Unity and Halo:MCC. When I popped in the Order on the PS4 I figured would be prompted to download a hellacious pat...
Heavenly sword,Indigo prophecy,heavy rain and beyond two souls have done exactly what The order is attempting build on. None of these titles set the world on fire with critics,but have loyal fan base. With the exception of Heavenly sword with it's combo heavy combat system I feel the order does a much better job bridging the gap between film and video games. I am a few hours in and am loving the order. This is a traditional adventure game with modern combat system that any tell ...
Given the hype surrounding this titled had it delivered 10's across the board we'd all be crying foul. Seldom in this industry have we seen games hyped as much as the order deliver. The title that immediately springs to mind is Rage. That was a beautiful game with solid core mechanics and the semi-open world that everyone loves,but was a middle of the road experience. I was one of the people that enjoyed quite a bit of the Rage,but admitted its flaws. The Order will...
