PS4 Pro 'Boost Mode' Will Enhance Some Older Games


"Games that have a variable frame rate may benefit from a higher frame rate, and load times may be shorter in some games too", the spokesperson added about the PlayStation 4.

According to forum users on NeoGAF, a menu option called "Boost Mode" could smooth out frame rates on older PS4 titles not optimised for the new console. You are able to turn off Boost Mode and play the game regularly, however. That's where the new "Boost Mode" system setting comes in, as it makes gaming on the PS4 Pro better for older games without Pro patches. Just Cause 3 definitely feels much better, as the game suffers from several issues while running on the original PlayStation 4 console.

Fed: No Rate Hike Today
When it raised rates last month, the Fed indicated that it expected to do so three more times in 2017. American manufacturing has been showing tentative signs of a comeback.

The PlayStation 4 Pro, in its initial launch, was priced $400 and is a hundred bucks more expensive than the standard PS4. A new high-performance mode has been spotted on a beta version of the upcoming 4.5 firmware patch. Update 4.5 Beta will be featuring "Boost Mode", which will enable PS4 Pro players to run at a higher GPU and CPU clock speed, which will improve gameplay on some PS4 games that were already released before the launch of the PS4 Pro. The Pro and Microsoft's Xbox "Scorpio" - which also promises performance gains and 4K video output - introduce a new dynamic for console buyers: mid-generation hardware that offers functional improvements beyond larger hard drives or a slimmed down form factor. One of the most requested features for the PS4 is finally being added, external hard drive support.

Sony has officially released a new update for PS4. At 7.2lbs (3.3kg), the Pro is 2.6lbs (1.2kg) heavier than the Slim and features more ports, including an extra USB slot and Optical output. Plenty of PS4 games are still coming out now that don't take advantage of the Pro's beefed up power.
