EuroGamer has posted their review of Sony’s upcoming new console, the PlayStation 4 Pro. The new PS4 Pro is brings 4K gaming to the current generation market.
The new PlayStation 4 Pro launches November 10 worldwide for $399. Three Call of Duty games will be supporting the PS4 Pro at launch, including Infinite Warfare, Modern Warfare Remastered, and Black Ops 3. Infinite Warfare and Modern Warfare Remastered support the PS4 Pro out of the box, while an update will be released for Black Ops 3.
EuroGamer’s testing has revealed that Infinite Warfare on PS4 Pro has been upscaled using checkerboard to 2160p. EuroGamer says these upscale provides “provide some remarkable results for a box with limited GPU power compared to the latest and greatest PC graphics hardware.”
Modern Warfare Remastered, on the other hand, has only be rendered up to a 1620p resolution on PS4 Pro. However, the reason the developers did not go all the way up is because they actually have made the game maintain a more stable FPS. In many intense moments in the game, where a standard PS4 might drop FPS to about 48FPS from 60, the PS4 Pro version holds tight at 60FPS. “You are getting more performance and increased image quality,” says EuroGamer.
The image above shows a scene where that dip occurs; a standard/slim PS4 will fall to 48FPS due to graphic intense scenes, but the PS4 Pro is able to maintain its 60FPS rendering.
