Sony will officially release the PlayStation 4 Pro console on November 10th, while Amazon has listed December 29th, 2017 as the date when it will deliver the product. The good news is that the manufacturer is now taking pre-orders for this console that will be sold for $399. How will it stack against the PS 4, which was released three years ago and it’s available for a price of $349?
First of all, the original PS4 measures 275.1 x 305.1 x 53.1mm, it weights 2.8Kg and has the shape of a black box with an asymmetrical design. It lies flat, but with a plastic stand that’s sold separately for $14/£16.99, the console can stand vertically. On its front side it has a slot-loading Blu-ray disc drive, two USB 3.0 ports on its right, which will charge the DualShock 4 controllers, no matter if the system is turned on or off. On the back side, you’ll find the HDMI, Ethernet, a digital optical audio out port, plus a PS4 dedicated connector AUX (USB 3.0-derived) for connecting the PlayStation Camera.
The output resolution of the PS4 is 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, 4K (video only) and soon HDR, it has two variants of internal storage with capacities of 500GB and 1TB. It’s powered by an octa core AMD Jaguar x86-64 processor backed by an AMD Radeon, 1.84 TFLOP GPU and 8GB of RAM and its connectivity options include Bluetooth v2.1 and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n.
The PS4 Pro resembles the PS4, but it has three plastic buns, so it has a larger body that measures 295 x 327 x 55mm. This means that it’s also heavier, as it weights 3.3Kg, and besides 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, it also plays 4K (select titles) and HDR. It’s powered by the same octa core AMD Jaguar processor with 8GB of RAM, but it uses the newer AMD Radeon, 4.20 TFLOP GPU and it’s available in only variant of internal memory of 1TB. In addition, it supports WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth v4.0.
