On 4K TVs, the PS4 Pro is capable of running games natively at a resolution of 3840 x 2160 at up to 60 frames per second (fps). It can also upscale 1080p content up to 4K when available. If you only have a HDTV, you can still benefit from a PS4 Pro: Depending on how the developer chooses to use the increased processing power, games with PS4 Pro support are able to render higher or more consistent frame rates, increased environmental and character model detail, improved overall visual quality, and other visual enhancements.
The PlayStation's graphics processing unit (GPU) contains a unified array of 36 Compute Units based on the Polaris architecture, which collectively generate 4.2 teraflops of processing power that can be applied freely to graphics, simulation tasks, or a mixture of the two. The PlayStation 4 is also equipped with 8GB of unified system memory, easing game creation and increasing the richness of content achievable. High-speed GDDR5 is used for the memory, giving the system a total of 218 GB/s of bandwidth and providing a further boost to graphics performance.
The PS4 Pro is fully compatible with the HDR10 specification. High Dynamic Range (HDR) is a display standard that allows for increased color depth and improved contrast compared to Standard Dynamic Range found on traditional HDTVs. In general, HDR-enabled content played on an HDR-compatible TV produces a noticeably fuller, richer image that is closer to what the human eye naturally sees. That means much deeper black levels that retain finer details, brighter highlights, and a much wider color spectrum than on traditional HDTVs.
The biggest names of the gaming world come alive on PS4, from the iconic characters of Star Wars™ Battlefront™, to the future combat of Call of Duty®: Infinite Warfare.
