Sony officially revealed the PlayStation 4 Pro specifications in September when they announced the new console at their Sony PlayStation meeting. The console is due for release in November and gamers can pre-order the 4K capable device now.

The upcoming console will allow players to run their games in 4K resolution if they also own a 4K TV; anyone without a 4K TV won’t benefit very much from purchasing a PlayStation 4 Pro. Sony also confirmed that virtual reality games running through the PlayStation VR will also work in 4K using the PlayStation 4 Pro.

Little advancement has been made over the original PlayStation 4 and this has come under a lot of criticism by all gamers; while the specifications for the Xbox Scorpio are yet to be revealed, comments from Microsoft have revealed that their console will be much more powerful.

Here are the specifications that have gamers concerned:

CPU: AMD 8 Core Jaguar
GPU: AMD Radeon, 4.20 TFLOPS
Memory: GDDR5 8GB
Storage: 1TB

There are only very slight changes to the hardware of the PlayStation 4 Pro. The PlayStation 4 uses the exact same CPU and Memory, the only improvements have been made to the GPU. It looks like the PlayStation 4 Pro will only be sold in 1TB formats however it’s still possible that a 2TB version will be sold in the future.

PlayStation 4 Pro has similar specifications to the Xbox One S however, this is still currently the only console that will be able to run games in native 4K resolution. The Xbox Scorpio is due for a late 2017 release date and 4K TV owners will need to wait and see just how the two consoles compare.
