The highly anticipated two new Sony PlayStation 4 consoles will be launched very soon and here is a comparison between them and the original PS4 in terms of performance.
To begin with, the two upcoming two consoles are dubbed PS4 Slim and PS4 Neo and they are supposed to be better versions of the original. The PS4 Slim is expected to be a slimmer console that comes with very few improvements when compared to the actual PS4. The second one, the PS4 Neo, will definitely be a revelation as it is confirmed to come with 4k resolution support.
The PS4 Slim will presumably be launched sometime this year whereas the PS4 Neo will probably be released sometime at the end of 2016 or in 2017.
Supposedly, this new slim PS4 console may end up replacing the original PS4 on the market, but chances are that both devices will replace the original. Let’s face it, if you, as a buyer were to choose between a less efficient console and a slightly improved console for a similar price you’d logically go for the second one. It only makes sense. The same happens if you simply want something that will offer you the best graphical experience. You will naturally go towards something like the PS4 Neo.
All of these seem to point to the fact that the current PS4 is somewhat outdated and very soon it may become obsolete.
As for performance, the current PS4 comes with an AMD Jaguar CPU and 1.84 teraflops of graphic processor. The same specs are said to be found in the PS4 Slim. However, the upcoming PS4 Neo is believed to boast a 2.1GHz octa-core processor and to have 4.14 teraflops of GPU power that will enable it to render 4k content. The PS4 Neo is obviously going to be a far capable console then the other two if the rumors are true.
