When designing PlayStation 4, the highest priority was to utilize the power of game developers while following the same general PC structure as game development machines.[59].

In particular, according to the conventional tendency, the memory capacity of 8GB (5.5GB for games), which is exceptional for a game machine, is popular with developers, and only 256MB for CPU and 256MB for GPU are secured. Compared to PS3 which was not done, it changed to a very easy-to-develop environment.In order to prevent the operation from being sluggish due to memory swap, there is a restriction that virtual memory cannot be used even on PlayStation 4.By adopting unified memory, the memory space handled by the GPU and CPU is shared, facilitating the development of high-speed programs.

The main processor is already mass-produced for PC,AMD Ofx86-64Custom architecture CPU is used[60]..This is because the advantage of developing a CPU dedicated to games has disappeared due to technological advances.In this regardPSCPU / GTE,PS2 OfEmotion Engine, PS3Cell Broadband EngineIt can be said that this is a major change from the past flow of independent development that emphasized peak performance rather than ease of development.

As for the CPU and OS, multiple systems for games and non-games are operating, and the side CPU can perform minimum communication such as software updates even during sleep, and can encode videos for distribution during the game. , Advanced features are included.

The controller is equipped with a Share button, and is equipped with new functions suitable for the SNS era, which makes it easy to record and distribute game patterns.

Main processor

For the main processorAMDCustomized for PS4 made by[16]APU(With CPUBut by the full GPU acceleration techIntegrated singleチップ・ Equipped with a processor), the CPU64 bits2 custom "Jaguar" (8 in total)コ ア), 1.84 for GPUテ ラFLOPS OfSingle precisionFloating pointHas computing performanceRadeonCustom products are used.TSMCManufactured on the 28nm process production line[61].

This APU is a GPGPU assisted technology being developed by AMDHSAToIt corresponds[Question][62], Unified to CPU and GPUAddress spaceIs provided[Note 6], Each have direct access to each other's memory usagehUMAIt is supported[Question][63].

Supercharged PC ArchitectureIn the conceptSuperchargedIn other words, it is the lead architect of PlayStation 4 about the part of original enhancement that exceeds the PC specifications.Mark SarneySays that there are so many points, but there are four typical ones.[64].

  • A mechanism that can transfer data at high speed between the CPU and GPU.
  • A mechanism to reduce the number of writes back from the cache memory in the GPU.
  • An arbitration mechanism that can prioritize arithmetic and graphics drawing processes in multiple layers.
  • A function that allows the GPU to take over the preprocessing of the CPU.

The above four typical points are all related to the main processor.


For CPUx86-64Equipped with two 4-core "Jaguar" with low power consumption and low heat generation with instruction set[65], Each CPU has 2MBL2 cacheIs shared by 4 cores.各コアは命令キャッシュ32KBおよびデータキャッシュ32KBのL1キャッシュを持っておりEach core has an LXNUMX cache with XNUMXKB of instruction cache and XNUMXKB of data cache.[66], The total is 512KB.

Jaguar comes from Bobcat, the previous generation of AMD's commonly shipped productsperformanceFor floating-point arithmetic performance, which is especially important for game consolesSIMDFloating point arithmetic (floating point)Vector operation) The unit has been doubled in performance from the conventional 64-bit width to 128-bit width.

But by the full GPU acceleration tech

GPU core is GCN (Graphics Core Next) In the system architecture, each of the 18 CUs (compute units) installed has 16 SIMD arithmetic units with 4 lanes.動作motionク ロ ッ クIs 800MHz and has a total of 1,152 multiply-accumulate units, so the single-precision floating-point arithmetic performance is 1.84 TFLOPS.

PS3RSX TheDirectX It used to use a 9th generation extended architecture, but this machine is now 2 generations ahead of the DirectX 11th generation.Graphics pipelineToPrimitiveCan be increased / decreased / appeared / disappeared with the GPU aloneGeometry shader, Primitive division / increase / decrease / displacement can be programmedTessellationStages have been added, and many instruction sets and features have been added. RSXのベースとなったIt became the base of RSXG70Was separatedPixel shader,Vertex shaderIs integrated,Unified shaderIt is composed.

Regarding GPU, SCE has made many customizations to AMD's basic design.GPU control that allows GPGPU and pure graphic processing to be mixed, which will be described later, and the task control function for GPGPU have been expanded accordingly.The API provided will be in the same form as the one provided for PS3 and PS Vita,Abstraction layerIt will be a low level without.This is to pursue more performance,OpenGLWrapper API with less overhead and its support for developers who are familiar withSource codeIs also provided.


This machine performs general-purpose arithmetic processing other than graphic processing on the GPU.GPGPUIs particularly important. Due to its characteristics, the GPU is good at repeating simple operations, and in floating-point operations, the GPU of this machine can process 11.5 times faster than the CPU (FLOPS ratio).Physics operationHigh performance can be demonstrated by taking charge of such things. PS3のCellに搭載されたInstalled in PSXNUMX CellSPUCore tooSIMDI was good at floating point arithmetic, but this machine is responsible for this by GPGPU.

GPGPU performs both graphic processing and general-purpose calculation on the GPU, but it is difficult to appropriately allocate the surplus performance to general-purpose calculation while executing graphic drawing processing, so graphic processing is suppressed and general-purpose calculation is performed. The performance must be surplus, and especiallyNVIDIAIn GPU, the handling of internal memory is different for graphic processing and general-purpose calculation, so it is necessary to switch the mode each time, and both cannot be executed at the same time.Therefore, in this machine, SPURS used in PS3 (SPU Runtime SystemIt is said that it has been customized so that graphic processing and general-purpose calculation can be performed efficiently at the same time, with reference to (a mechanism that virtualizes surplus resources such as SPU and allows arithmetic processing to be performed autonomously).その例としてGPUコアからL1/L2キャッシュをバイパスし10GB/sの帯域幅で直接メインメモリーを読み書きできるようになっていること、L2キャッシュに新たにAs an example, bypassing the LXNUMX / LXNUMX cache from the GPU core and being able to read and write the main memory directly with a bandwidth of XNUMX GB / s, a new LXNUMX cachevolatileA tag is provided so that the data written directly to the main memory can be distinguished, and as a result, all the cache memory of the GPU can be efficiently allocated for graphic processing.これらによりGPGPUをCPUのような感覚で容易に行うことができるとされているWith these, it is said that GPGPU can be easily performed like a CPU.[60].

There is the above-mentioned HSA etc. that supports GPGPU, but if a unified programming language and API based on such an architecture are used, development will be easier, but it will be difficult to improve processing efficiency. SCE is unique using its own optimization technologyShader (PlayStation Shader Language; PSSL) is provided.In addition, we will continue to provide deeper level hardware access, general-purpose API support such as OpenGL and DirectX as a medium-term stage, and full hardware access, and in order to facilitate development in the long term. The goal is to allow the same programming language to be used on the CPU and GPU.

Audio DSP

AMD TrueAudio technology is used for audio DSP[67].

Main memory

memoryThe surrounding architecturePCIt has a special structure compared to.Main memoryHas been exclusively so farVideo cardForVRAMWideband that has been used forGDDR58GBMount[Note 7]..このメモリ拡充により、従来With this memory expansion, conventionalSONYThe small amount of memory that has been a problem with game consoles has been resolved.BandwidthIs 176GB / sIn addition to exceeding the 2GB / s of VRAM installed in PS48, it was installed in PS3.XDR DRAMIt boasts a transfer speed that is about 25.6 times faster than the 7GB / s.汎用のGeneral purposeDDR3The 192 bit interface will finally reach 40GB / s, and SIE emphasizes its wide bandwidth.

Although it was not 8GB at the beginning of development, it has achieved 8GB, although it costs money, reflecting the opinions of creators on the manufacturer side.[69].

PS3 has separate memory for system and graphics (with XDR DRAM)GDDR3, Each was 256MB), but with this machine, the CPU and GPU are integrated and directly connected to the APU, so there is no need to separate the memory connection bus for each application and it is shared.またAlsoHSAhUMASince the memory map was unified by the correspondence, it was not necessary to transfer the data to pass the processing to the GPU to VRAM each time, which caused it.bottleneckHas been resolved[Question][63].

Memory is connected to APU via 256-bit bus[70]..メモリーには16個の4Gビットチップ(CUH-1000シリーズXNUMX XNUMXG bit chips in memory (CUH-XNUMX series)[71], CUH-1100 series[72]), Or 8 8 Gbit chips (CUH-1200 series)[73], CUH-2000 series[74]CUH-2100 series), 256-bit interface from bandwidth, 5.5G(English edition) Is expected to have a transfer volume of.

Secondary processor

In addition to the memory for the main processor, 32MB of firmware and 256MB of dedicated memory are connected to the secondary processor to load the firmware for the main processor and play games.suspend,Resume, Of the networktrafficIt is a subsystem for I / O control such as control.

With this secondary processorBackgroundAtUpload-DownloadProcessing, etc.storageThe entire access and download process is carried out by this chip, and it is said that the download will continue even while the power is always supplied and the main unit is turned off.このチップはメインCPUに比べて省電力であり、大きな電力を消費するメインCPUをダウンロードのためだけに待機中動作させ続ける(本体の電源を入れておく)必要がなくなっているThis chip saves power compared to the main CPU, eliminating the need to keep the main CPU, which consumes a lot of power, running in standby just for download (turning on the main unit).[60].

Encoder / Decoder

For PS4 to use for video sharing etc.hardware encoder-DecoderIs also installed.これは単独で搭載されていてAPUやセカンダリープロセッサーから処理の委託を受けるIt is installed independently and is entrusted with processing from the APU and secondary processor.[75].

Video encoding-DecodeBesides, for playing in-game audioCompressed sound sourceDecode,Audio chatIt can also be used for.With this function installed, the CPU, main memory, and even in encoding / decoding of real-time game screen recording and game play real-time relay, etc.BandwidthIs explained not to use at all[76].

By using this video compression hardware,PlayStation Vita Most remote play using (PS Vita)overheadCan be done without.


For all models as local storageHard disk driveThe initial model is 500GB. CUH-1200BB01 is equipped with 1TB.内蔵HDDはPS3同様に交換可能であるThe internal HDD is replaceable like the PSXNUMX[77].

The HDD storage location is above the BD drive when placed horizontally.本体を縦置きにした場合の上半分のパネルが取り外し可能になっており、そこに取り付けられているThe upper half of the panel when the main body is placed vertically is removable and is attached there[78].

Compatible drives are 2.5 inch, 5400RPM, SATA 2 interface, capacity of 160GB or more and thickness up to 9.5mm[79][80].. The reason why it is 160GB or more is that the system reserves an area of ​​92GB or more by default in the initial state at the time of setup, and it secures the work area used by the application with the default configuration and stores the data for updating the firmware. This is because a minimum capacity of 160GB or more is required to do so.Therefore, even if the initial shipping model has a built-in HDD of 500GB as standard, the free space is about 408GB at the time of setup.

External expansion of storage area by USB 3.0 terminal is supported by system software version 4.50.[79]..The recognizable capacity is 250GB or more and up to 8TB, and you can use an external storage that supports USB 3.0 or more.Only data can be moved to external storage, and system areas such as the OS can only be handled by internal storage.

The maximum data transfer rate of SATA 2 which is the built-in HDD interface is 300MB / s, and the maximum data transfer rate of USB 3.0 is 500MB / s. When comparing the reduction of load time when using SSD as storage between replacement with internal HDD and external installation, it was almost the same or the replacement of internal HDD tended to be faster.[81].. Regarding the speed improvement of the system itself such as startup and termination of the PS4 main unit, sleep and wakeup, it is a merit only for internal storage replacement.As for PS4 pro, which will be described later, the built-in HDD interface is SATA 3 (maximum data transfer speed 600MB / s), so it can be faster than the normal PS4.

OS (system software)

PS4User interfaceIs called "PlayStation Dynamic Menu"[82].

The OS is called "Orbis OS"FreeBSD A 9.0-based OS is used[83][84][85], PS Vita as wellMultitaskingCorresponding to[86].

When downloading a game from the PS Store, there is an instant play function that allows you to perform some functions of the game even before the download is completely completed by installing it step by step.[Note 8], SIE calls it PlayGo[87].

When playing game software, without determining the areaRegion freeIs treated as[88]However, the FAQ on the official website suggests that region locks may be applied at the discretion of each software company. SCE recommends the purchase of PS4 consoles and game software sold in the area of ​​residence from the viewpoint of safety standards and operation guarantee in each area.Also, if the overseas version is used in Japan, it will not be supported.

Like PS4, PS3 supports multi-user, multiple accounts can be set for one, and users can be switched.[89]..さらにPS4ではマルチユーザーに加えて、マルチアカウントで、最大4人まで同時サインインが可能Furthermore, in PSXNUMX, in addition to multi-user, up to XNUMX people can sign in at the same time with multi-account.[90]It is now possible to bring a PSN account to a local match where PS4 is gathered.

It is recommended to update to the latest version to add functions, enhance security, and fix bugs.

The function to automatically download update dataPlayStation PlusIs a service provided by PS4, but in the case of PSXNUMX,InstallIt became available to all users with the addition of a function that automatically performs up to[91]..ただし、スタンバイモードでの定期チェック及び自動ダウンロード機能はHowever, the regular check and automatic download functions in standby mode are not available.PlayStation PlusLimited to subscribers.

Of the 8GB of main memory, the capacity that can be used for games is known to game developers, but is not open to the public. OS側も、OS自身や非ゲームアプリケーション動作用にシステムリザーブ領域が有るThe OS side also has a system reserve area for the OS itself and non-game application operation.[89].

PS4 that I always use

In PS4, the handling of download version game content owned by users has been changed. 「いつも使うPS4」としてAs "PSXNUMX that I always use"PSNWhen PS4 is registered in the account, the device is registered in the PSN account as the main user (primary user) of the PS4.その場合いくつかの特権がそのPS4に対して認められるIn that case some privileges are granted to the PSXNUMX[24].

The following shows how to handle the download version of the game from the perspective of a user who has a PS4 registered as "PS4 that I always use".

  • The DL version game owned by each PS4 primary user does not require the primary user to sign in when using it.Use is limited to games that have already been installed.Others cannot download it without permission.
  • The number of PS4s that can be signed in at the same time is only one other than "PS4 that I always use", so if you sign in to another PS1, you should sign out when you are done with it.
  • Only one PSN account can be registered as "Always-used PS4", and the registration can only be canceled by the "Always-used PS1" itself.

Second screen

PS Vita,iPhone,iPad,AndroidEquippedSmartphone,Tablet terminalBy installing the dedicated software "PlayStation App" on the Sony PlayStation, you can use those devices as a second screen linked with this unit via the network.

While playing a game, you can display information that does not fit on the TV screen on your device, view the screen of this unit that your friend is playing, watch your friend's activity when you go out, shop at the PS Store, etc. Usage methods such as use as a PS4 external terminal are listed.[60][92]..In addition, the touch keyboard of the second screen terminal can be used when inputting characters.

In particular, cooperation with PS Vita is special, and system-level cooperation is considered.[60].

The PlayStation App for smartphones and tablets was released on February 2014, 2, and is compatible with Android 14 or later and iOS 4.0 or later.[39]..Up to 16 smartphones and tablets can be registered on PS4.

Remote play

Following PS3, this unit is equipped with a remote play function that can transfer the image of the main unit to the screen of PS Vita etc. and control the main unit.Local networkIt is also possible to remotely control the machine from outside, not just on the top.

Compatible terminals are PS Vita (Vita side system software 3.00 or more) and PS Vita TV (PS4 side system software 1.70 or more, Vita TV side system software 3.15 or more), Android smartphones and tablets (Android 5.0 or later),iPhone,iPadEtc.iOSDevice (iOS 12.1 or later)[93], Windows PC or Macintosh[94].

In PS3, it was necessary to convert the video to be transferred for remote play with the CPU, and it was difficult to implement special implementation for each individual game software to support remote play, but this machine has this. The processing is now handled on the system side, and it is now possible to handle it simply by considering the difference in the arrangement of operation buttons.またPS3では本体のリモートプレイと本体の映像出力を同時に行えなかったが、本機では同じ画面を同時に出力するAlso, PSXNUMX could not perform remote play of the main unit and video output of the main unit at the same time, but this unit outputs the same screen at the same time.MirroringAnd it is said that it is possible to output individual screens for each[95]..リモートプレイへの切替は、PS3の時のように予めリモートプレイモードに切り替えるものではなく、何時でも切り替えられるものになっているSwitching to remote play does not switch to remote play mode in advance as in PSXNUMX, but it can be switched at any time.[96]..カメラ対応など物理的な理由によるもの等を除いて、ほとんどのPS4専用ソフトをリモートプレイで楽しめるYou can enjoy most PSXNUMX software by remote play, except for physical reasons such as camera support.[97].

In addition, the L2 / R2 and L3 / R3 buttons that do not exist on PS Vita can be customized by substituting the front and back touchpads of PS Vita.clientIs developing[96][98].

A dedicated app "PS4 Remote Play" is required for remote play using Android and iOS devices.Use the virtual buttons and sticks displayed on the screen for operation.DUAL SHOCK 4とBluetoothIt is also possible to connect and use it.

The resolution of the streaming video differs depending on the PS4 main unit and client device, and supports 360p / 540p / 720p / 1080p (output is possible only when the PS4 Pro main unit is connected to an Android / iOS terminal, Windows PC, or Mac).

The frame rate can be selected from "Standard" and "High" on all client devices, but when "High" is selected, the gameplay recording function is suspended.

In order to perform stable streaming, it is necessary to set all according to the network quality.

Wi-Fi connection is required in the official app, and it is not possible to connect during mobile data communication.

Audio visual

PS4 Pro only,4K resolution (2160p) Is supported and SD output (480i and 480p) is not supported.[15].

Blu-ray DiscVideo playback (UHD Blu-ray disc is not supported[15]),DVDSupports video playback[Note 9].Super audio CDDoes not support readingcompact disc (CD) can be read but does not have a music playback function.[86][60][100].. USBストレージ機器内のIn the USB storage deviceMP3,AACFile playback functionSystem software 2.0Implemented in. Ver.2.50ではIn Ver.XNUMXFLAC,DSEEAlso supports[101].

In the part that becomes the upper part of the main body when it is placed vertically,HDMI,DTS-HD Master Audio7.1,Dolby TrueHD,Blu-ray DiscYou can see each logo mark of[102][103]..製品ではIn the productDTS-HD Master AudioThe decoder will be equipped with the latest 4 at the time of PS7.1 releaseDTSWas announced by.Along with that, the DTS-HD logo on the main unit has also been changed. PS4は同デコーダー初の搭載製品となるPSXNUMX will be the first product equipped with the decoder[103]..オブジェトベースオーディオ(Dolby AtmosとDTS:X)にも対応するAlso supports object-based audio (Dolby Atmos and DTS: X)[104].

At the time of announcementAV multiThe terminal was planned to be installed, but it was changed later and the video outputHDMIIt was decided to be unified to.For this reason, devices that do not have an HDMI terminal (HDTV CRT TVCannot be used (eg, connection using a conversion device or selector is possible but not supported)[105].. Since the minimum output image quality of PS4 Pro is 720p, it cannot be used with devices whose HDMI input does not support HD or 4K image quality.

System software version 4.00 or later reproduces bright and dark areas and widens the color range (HDR) Output is supported by all models)[106].

Regarding HDMI, regardless of the video data including games, if you connect a device that does not support HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard with an HDMI cable, you may not be able to output video and audio from PS4. It is clearly stated in the user's guide.この仕様は出力する映像データの著作権保護が目的であるため、シェア機能で投稿可能なゲームの映像についてはHDCP認証を一時的に無効化する修正を行うことで外部機器での録画ができるようにするファームウェアのアップデートがされたSince the purpose of this specification is to protect the copyright of the output video data, it is possible to record the video of the game that can be posted with the share function on an external device by temporarily disabling HDCP authentication. The firmware has been updated[Note 10].

To display 4K resolution, the HDMI cable to be connected must support 18 Gbps, and the display on the display side must support HDCP 2.2. For HDR10, it may be necessary for the display on the display side to support HDCP 1.4 or higher and the HDMI cable to be connected to support 18 Gbps.It goes without saying that the display on the display side needs to be compatible, but if you do not use a wideband compatible HDMI cable, the band will be insufficient and you will not be able to display normally.Even when a pass-through device is connected between the display and the game machine, the device needs to support a wide band.


This called DUALSHOCK 4controllerThen.PlayStation 3 OfDUAL SHOCK 3Not to mention the change in designTouch padVarious changes were made, including the adoption of[107]..This is the first time the design has been changed.This controller is included in the main unit and is also sold separately.

With the release of the CUH-2000 series, it will be switched to the new model, and there are differences in performance such as the player who has it can check the color of the light bar and it supports wired connection by USB.

There is also a PS official license acquisition model that follows this controller[108][109].

PS4の標準コントローラであるDUALSHOCK 4はモーションコントローラーの光るタマと同じ役割の「ライトバー」を搭載するため、PlayStation CameraはDUALSHOCK 4の位置も認識できるが、ソニーワールドワイドスタジオヨーロッパのMichael Denny副社長は、「PlayStation Moveの全ての機能と一緒というわけではない」とし、その理由として「Moveコントローラーは多くの動きを検知するために自由に設計できたから」と語っているSince DUALSHOCK XNUMX, which is the standard controller of PSXNUMX, is equipped with a "light bar" that plays the same role as the glowing ball of the motion controller, the PlayStation Camera can also recognize the position of DUALSHOCK XNUMX, but Michael Denny, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studio Europe "It's not the same as all the features of PlayStation Move," he said, because "the Move controller could be freely designed to detect many movements."[113].

Since the shape of the USB terminal is different from that of DUALSHOCK 4, the charging cable cannot be shared.Therefore, a charging cable with DUALSHOCK 1 specifications was added to the new package (CECH-ZCM3JY) that was re-released when PlayStation VR was released, and later the PlayStation Move motion controller (CECH-ZCM4) dedicated to PS2 was released.

DRM (Digital Rights Management)

Handling of used software

Used software can be started on PS4 without any restrictions.

Before the announcement of PS4, rumors were circulating that "used software will be limited in the next generation PlayStation"[125]..また、ソニーが取得していた特許In addition, the patent that Sony had acquired[Note 12]ByActivationIt was also pointed out that it would be impossible to "play with used software" and "play by lending and borrowing software".[126][127]..これについて2013年2月にSCEワールドワイドスタジオのAbout this in February XNUMX at SCE Worldwide StudiosShuhei YoshidaWhen asked, "Can I buy a game disc and run it on another person's PS4?", The president replied, "It works."[128].. HoweverDRMRumors of restrictions on used software by PS4 have not stopped, and SCE and game industry officials including Yoshida demanded that PSXNUMX not restrict used software.TwitterThe movement to send messages to your accountInternet forumSo raised and put into practice[129].

At the SCE press conference at E2013 in June 6, it was reiterated that the restrictions on used software will not be enforced on PS3, and the audience at the venue cheered.また、SCEは中古ゲームの説明ビデオと称する動画In addition, SCE is a video called an explanation video of used games.[130]Was published on the Internet.吉田によれば、中古ソフトの扱いについて以前からPS3と同じ方針であり、中古ソフトに関するポリシーにも余り迷いは無かったが、いったい何が起こったのか何故か大事になってしまったので、冗談半分ながら急遽説明ビデオを作成したというAccording to Yoshida, the handling of used software has been the same policy as PSXNUMX for a long time, and there was not much hesitation about the policy regarding used software, but it became important for some reason what happened, so I'm half joking. It is said that he made an explanation video in a hurry[131].

In order to make a difference between new and used buyers, software makers allow certain items to be downloaded only once, and unless the new buyer sells the item without downloading it, the used buyer will There are many cases in PS4 and other hardware game software that prevent the item from being downloaded.

Online authentication

PS4 does not perform online authentication at all even while playing the disc version of the gameElectronic Entertainment Expo Announced in 2013[132].

The basic specifications are based on the CUH-2000 series, but the hardware specifications of the CUH-7000 have been strengthened from full HD to 4K specifications.As a result, the BD playback image quality at 1080p output has improved to the extent that it surpasses that of high-end BD players on the market, including those made by Sony. When playing the game software labeled "PS4 Pro Enhanced", some video expressions will be enhanced compared to the regular version PS4.

For PS4 Pro compatible applications, it renders at an appropriate resolution exceeding full HD such as 2560 x 1440 pixels or 2840 x 1600 pixels, and upscales this to 4K resolution and outputs it.For existing PS4 compatible applications, simply upscale to 4K resolution and output.
  • Not compatible with 4K Blu-ray / UHD Blu-ray[5]
    • Supports DVD video and Blu-ray Disc playback as with previous models. For playback of SD video such as DVD video, the minimum output image quality is 720p, so the video will be output after being up-converted.

    • The standard HDD is the same SATA 4 standard HDD as the normal version PS2, and it is the performance of SATA 3SSDOnly when replacing with high-speed storage such as[143].

  • CPU expanded from 1.6GHz to 2.1GHz

  • Main memory GDDR5 bandwidth expanded from 176GB / sec to 218GB / sec
  • Sub-memory DDR3 expanded from 256MB to 1GB
  • Remote play 1080p support (existing models that are not Pro series supported up to 720p)
  • In system software Ver.2017 delivered on March 3, 9, "boost mode" has been added, which can provide benefits such as improved frame rate and shortened loading time even with conventional PS4.50 software that has not been updated for PS4 Pro.[144].. 2018å¹´3月8日配信のシステムソフトウェアVer.5.50では、4K解像度対応のソフトの一部がフルHD等の4K未満の解像度のテレビに出力する際に画質が向上する「スーパーサンプリングモード」が追加されたIn system software Ver.XNUMX delivered on March XNUMX, XNUMX, "super sampling mode" has been added to improve image quality when some XNUMXK resolution compatible software is output to a TV with a resolution less than XNUMXK such as full HD.
