If you consider yourself a true gamer, ps4 is probably among the video game consoles you most want to own. And you should know that ps4 already has a pro version. If you’ve been saving up to buy this console from Sony, you probably want to make the best investment. That’s why in this post we show you the differences between ps4 and ps4 pro. Make sure you choose the option that suits you best.
Differences between ps4 and ps4 pro
The ps4 and ps4 pro share the same processor. Both are equipped with a powerful eight-core AMD ‘Jaguar’ x86-64. However, the difference is in its graphics engine. The ps4 comes with a 1.84 TFLOPS AMD Radeon. This is an 18-core graphics processor. But, the graphic engine of the ps4 Pro is much better. It is a 4.20 TFLOPS Radeon AMD of 36 cores. If you haven’t understood, the graphics processing power of the ps4 pro is much higher.
This guarantees that your experience with the graphics of any video game is of excellent quality. We are talking about, with the ps4 Pro, you will be able to play with ultra high definition graphics.
As for storage, don’t worry. The ps4 Pro has a 1 Tb hard disk. The normal ps4 can also be found in a version with 1 Tb storage. However, it is also common to find normal ps4 with 500 GB hard disks. Obviously the ps4 Pro is much better than the 500 GB hard disk.
In terms of RAM, both consoles have a GDDR5 RAM of 8 Gb.
Both consoles have high-speed USB ports. However, while the normal ps4 has only two USB ports, the ps4 Pro has three such ports. Both consoles also have an auxiliary port.
Are you one of those who enjoys graphics with bright, vivid colors? Then the ps4 pro is for you. HDR technology is high dynamic range lighting technology. What does this mean? It means you’ll see any movie or game with graphics and images so sharp, they’ll look real to you. As if you were living a scene.
This is one of the strongest points of the ps4 Pro, because normal ps4 doesn’t have this technology.
The games available for ps4 are the same games available for ps4 pro. The only thing different will be your experience when playing. Thanks to its features, the ps4 pro offers you a better image quality in video games. Especially for its 4K resolution.
However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. First, to fully enjoy the features offered by ps4 pro, you must have a TV that allows it. That is, your TV must have HDR technology and 4K resolution. Also, specifically in terms of games, there are few games developed in 60 FPS. This means that, with most games for ps4 and ps4 pro, the difference in graphics quality will not be as noticeable.
Comparing prices, obviously the ps4 pro is more expensive. A normal ps4 costs just over $300 USD. Meanwhile, a ps4 pro is over $400 USD. Is it worth paying the difference? It will depend on what you’re looking for as a player.
So, which of the consoles should I buy?
The truth is that it is impossible to make a bad decision by choosing between a ps4 and a ps4 pro. Both are some of the best video game consoles that can be found on the market. We know that one of the features you would choose a ps4 pro over a ps4, are the graphics. So one recommendation we can give you is to choose the ps4 Pro only if you have an HDR 4K TV. This is the only way you can enjoy the graphics experience that ps4 pro offers.
Also, remember that for what a ps4 pro costs you can buy a normal ps4 and a video game. So you should think about whether the price is worth it.
