PS4 Pro: Boost mode enhances older PS4 titles, upping frame rates or reducing load times

Sony used the weekend to confirm that the PS4 Pro will benefit from ‘Boost Mode’ within its 4.50 system update.

The mode is designed for older PS4 games, and will offer higher GPU and CPU clock speeds for a better experience.

“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 said in a recent update.

“Games that have a variable frame rate may benefit from a higher frame rate, and load times may be shorter in some games too.”

Sony made the confirmation after a user testing the update leaked information to Polygon.

The PS4’s 4.50 system update also provides support for external hard drives and turns the PlayStation VR unit into a 3D Blu-ray player. It heads to beta users this week.
