Titles which use resolution scaling to hit a locked frame rate should also benefit by being able to maintain a higher resolution more consistently. However, Sony has confirmed that the Boost Mode option will be exclusive to the more powerful console. The only downside is games may "experience unexpected behaviour during gameplay". Sony had always stated in the past that using extra horsepower on older titles was not possible to ensure 100% compatibility with all games.

Currently, games run more or less identically on the PS4 and the PS4 Pro unless a special Pro patch is deployed by the game maker to take advantage of the Pro's additional power.

There's no word on when the 4.5 firmware patch will be available to download for the majority of PlayStation owners - only a select few involved in the beta testing programme have access to the preview build.

In a broader sense, Boost Mode should establish the PS4 Pro as the only version of the console worth owning.

"Boost Mode lets PS4 Pro run at a higher GPU and CPU clock speed for smoother gameplay on some PS4 games that were released before the launch of PS4 Pro (and has not been updated to support PS4 Pro)", Sony explained. You can also move games now installed on your PS4 hard drive to the external drive.

The PlayStation 4 Pro also had a promise of 4K, despite not through a native resolution render and simply done with checkerboard upscaling technique (via Gamingbolt.) However, there's no clear cut regarding which games are going to be supported in the future.

It's been a busy year for Sony, with the launch of both a slimmer version of its Playstation 4 console and its new Playstation VR headset. In Rainbow Six Siege's unlocked Terrorist Hunt game mode, for example, a player was able to achieve a framerate of 110 FPS, with an average of 90 FPS.

Sony says that all games and apps saved on the external device will appear on the Home Screen's Content Launcher, while save files will still be stored locally on the PS4.
