Here are games getting significant boost with PS4 Pro's new firmware

PS4 Pro Boost Mode Will Speed Up Older Games

Next PlayStation 4 update brings external hard drive support and PS4 Pro boost mode

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.

This new mode was discovered by beta testers for the System Update 4.50, which also adds external hard drive support.

Egypt vs Cameroon AFCON Final
The Lions were dealt a big blow when a number of senior players retired from the national team just days before the tournament. That's why the players who are on the bench keep motivation. " Cameroon is a very strong and organised team".

For a look at the performance boost this new feature will reportedly provide, check out this comparison video from YouTube user Noel Underson that offers a look at The Evil Within running with and without Boost Mode. Action Mode is told to "make for a better playing game" and on PS4 gives "a level of performance very close to that of the PS4 Pro", says Digital Foundry. It will enable those games to run faster and smoother on the most powerful PlayStation that Sony has ever released.

"Experience improved gameplay, including higher framerates, for some games that were released before the PS4 Pro (CUH-7000 Series)". Unfortunately, "Boost Mode" is exclusive only to the PS4 Pro. Titles which use resolution scaling to hit a locked frame rate should also benefit by being able to maintain a higher resolution more consistently. Check out our overview of PS4 Pro's game upgrades and differences for a look at all the PS4 games that now have enhancements when played on Pro. You are able to turn off Boost Mode and play the game regularly, however. "That meant staying with eight Jaguar cores for the CPU and pushing the frequency as high as it would go on the new process technology, which turned out to be 2.1GHz". We already recommend it to anyone looking at a new PS4 purchase - even those that don't own a 4K TV - and this new feature only reinforces that recommendation. Obviously, this optimization will have no effect on games that have already received an optimization patch, and it will be disabled at any time if the player detects a possible problem.
