PS4 Neo Release Date Rumors: Announcement Next Month?

By on

PS4 NEO is expected to be announced next month because Sony has been handing out invitations for the ?PlayStation Meeting? taking place in The Playstation Theatre, New York.

Rumors and speculation proved that Sony might be announcing their newest generation console, named PlayStation 4 Neo or PS4 Neo. A console that is capable of playing 4K Resolution movies, videos and other medias.

However, it is still unclear that the PS4 Neo will be able to run games in 4K. In fact, the people who have technical knowledge doubts that the console can handle games in 4K.

PS4 Neo has been improved compared to the original PS4, as it now runs 8 Jaguar Cores @ 2.1Ghz, GPU boosted to speed 911Mhz and memory bandwidth increased to 218GB/s. A 24% increase in memory bandwidth, a 1.3x boost in CPU clock speed and an increase of 2.3x FLOPS or compute power to the GPU.

Compared to the old PS4, with 8 Jaguar Cores @ 1.6Ghz, GPU running at 800Mhz, and a 176GB/s memory bandwidth.

PS4 Neo is also rumored to be having a Polaris GPU inside, a new generation GPU from AMD, the reason why people justified that it will be capable of running 4K resolution.

However, PS4 Neo won?t be running at a Native 4K Resolution (if the rumors are true). It will be upscaled to 4K Resolution to improve and sharpen the image, reducing aliasing or jagged edges.

PS4 Neo will still give a Graphical and Performance boost when it comes to current generation games. Sony clarified that the current generation PS4 will still receive games the way that the PS4 Neo does.

PS4 Neo will be a direct competition versus the Microsoft?s Xbox Scorpio, another console whose claimed that can run games at 4K Resolution, again.

While modern gaming computers already capable of more than 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. However, the PC community proved that if the PS4 Neo is capable of running 4K, it?ll be a hundred dollars more expensive than the original PS4, as 4K resolution isn?t an easy task to run when it comes to AAA games while maintaining 60 FPS.

PS4 Neo will be an amazing innovation to games and developers, given the current console generation can?t handle 1080p at 60 Frames per second all the time. ?

?PlayStation Meeting? will be held at The PlayStation Theatre, New York on September 7 at 3pm (8pm UK time).
