It would seem Sony is finally ready to share some details on their upcoming PS4 upgrade, currently codenamed Neo. The system has been heavily rumored for months now and has even suffered several major leaks with official Sony documents being uploaded online detailing the new system. The event – the ‘PlayStation Meeting’ will be held on September 7 at 3 p.m. ET in New York.
We’re likely to see a technical showcase of the new PS4 upgrade running some of PlayStation’s most anticipated titles to really demonstrate the advantages of upgrading to the new upgrade. We will also likely see some form of 4K and maybe HDR – features the recently released Xbox One S boasts.
Thanks to EuroGamer, we’ve been privy to the rumored specs of the machine before the documents leaked online. The report says the PS4.5 will use the same CPU as the PS4, but each of its eight Jaguar cores will be clocked at 2.1GHz instead of 1.6GHz – a boost of 1.3. At the same time, the memory will go up from 8GB GDDR5 at 176GB/sec to the same amount of memory at a faster 218GB/sec – enough for a 24% increase in bandwidth. The machine is said to have GPU power in the range of 4.14 TFLOPS
What games would you like to see shown off on the new upgrade? Personally, I’d like to see some older titles like Bloodborne get patched to run better on Neo and then some highly anticipated titles such as Horizon: Zero Dawn running on the new machine.
