Mark Cerny over PlayStation 4 Pro

PlayStation 4 Pro

The Verge heeft een interview geplaatst met hardware baas van PlayStation Mark Cerny. Hij praat over de mogelijkheid voor een PlayStation 4 Pro Elite controller en over de specificaties van de PlayStation 4 Pro.

Mark Cerny heeft het volgende te zeggen over een PlayStation 4 Pro Elite controller:

Despite its new console seemingly targeting the serious gamer, Cerny made the point that Sony is not interested in selling an expensive gamepad like the Xbox One Elite controller. “We want to keep PlayStation 4 as a single unified audience,” he said. “We need to be quite careful to the enhancements we add to the controller. But it’s not the sort of thing that’s going to create have’s and have nots.” The new Dualshock 4 controller, bundled with both the PS4 Slim and the Pro, is just a slightly different model with an extended light bar.

Over de PlayStation 4 Pro zelf had hij het volgende te zeggen:

The PS4 Pro is 2.28 times more powerful than its predecessor, but not everything will run in native 4K
Instead of using an entirely new GPU, Cerny said the PS4 Pro is using a “double-sized one.” In effect, the new console has a second, identical GPU configured next to the original, with a 14 percent boost in frequency to 911MHz, which more than doubles the processing power of the Pro. While the standard PS4 produces 1.8 teraflops, the PS4 Pro achieves 4.2 teraflops. The console uses the same eight Jaguar CPU cores, but clocked at a higher speed. It also makes use of its system memory in a more efficient fashion, using a higher bandwidth on the 8GB of GDDR5 memory to squeeze out an additional 512MB for game developers to make use of. An additional 1GB of convention DRAM was put in the Pro to help it switch applications, so software like Netflix will be stored on the DRAM when open but not in use.

Nieuwe informatie hierbij is dat de PlayStation 4 Pro dus een extra GB aan RAM geheugen mee krijgt welk het wisselen van applicaties sneller moet maken.

De PlayStation 4 Pro komt uit op 10 november. Ga jij hem halen?
