PS4.5 Features Double the GPU Power, Higher Clock Speed – Rumour

Launch titles will include Deep Down and God of War 4 apparently.

Posted By | On 31st, Mar. 2016 Under News


Sony’s PS4.5 or PS4K – depending on what you want to call it – could apparently have a GPU twice as powerful as the current SDK according to insider reports.

NeoGAF user OsirisBlack claimed to have lots of information about the PS4.5 from a meeting that happened recently. NeoGAF mods verified these sources and it seems the console will cost $399. If a better CPU happens, then it’s likely that the price is $499.

The GPU will apparently have a faster clock speed and will be smaller. It will also apparently have a 4K Blu-ray player and upscale games which aren’t 4K native (not that new games will run at native 4K anyway).

Developers are already in possession of dev kits apparently and while games developed for the PS4.5 will also head to the PS4, there will be sacrifices made for performance. Launch games will apparently include EVE: Valkyrie and Robinson: The Journey for PlayStation VR, Deep Down and God of War 4.

Take this all with a grain of salt of course. What are your thoughts on the same? Let us know in the comments.

    Double the gpu power for instance is like having uncharted 4 run at 1080p 60 instead of 30. The power is still far away from native 4k and I don’t think alot of the Sony fanboys get that

  • Truth™ PSVR 960×1080®

    Still manages to be outdated in hardware and an inferior crossfire solution compared to Nvidia’s SLI.

    Toppermost kek, Sony.

  • Martin Gullaksen

    Double the Gpu power is not enough to produce 4k. Let the 4k-tv do the upscaling. See no reason why the ps4.5 should do it.
    2x the gpu speed seems realistic.
    A $500 ps4.5 and a $300 ps4 seems like a fair value-proposition

      Oh its going to be upscale no doubt about it. The next Gpu i am getting should do 4k good enough ”1080 ti” or a Fury Z or w/e AMD will call it.

    • Martin Gullaksen

      I still see no reason why ps4.5 should target 4k, nor do I see a reason why it should come with a upscaling unit. PSVR is not 4k. Frame-rates and graphic settings seem more important than 4k resolution.

      1080ti and FuryZ can probably push 4k, but no console will include such expensive hardware(except a $1000 steambox)

    Sony is running scared from DX12. They know xb1 games will be using it.

    • Pops

      yeah gears screen shoots look crazy.And phil said some type of ungrade wass coming.Im starting to really think something really is hidden in the xbox.

    • Mr Xrat

      You still trying to push that? After Battlefront it just makes you look dumb.

  • Ian Henry

    Well, this is interesting.
    Deep Down and God Of War 4 are going to be released as launch titles for PS4k. Weird for God Of War 4 as this series is always release in March. But the PS4k will be released in Q1 2017 right. So that means the update will be released somewhere between January 23-March 23, 2017.

    Alright! I’ll take there word for it but something isn’t just right about it’s being presented as a new console. However, if it is the this going to be the shortest generation ever.

  • Riggybro

    Double the GPU power?! So that’s 100% extra GPU power. For under $500. Right.

    So what’s 100% more powerful than a (slightly gimped) radeon hd 7980?

    I’m an nvidia guy and I am just thinking what would be 100% more powerful than say a 750ti… and I’m thinking that’s kinda powerful… and expensive for a console.

  • Pops

    sonys vr must suck on the reg.ps4

  • Mr Xrat

    Double the GPU power for that price? Nice try.

    • Truth™ PSVR 960×1080®

      Same GPU in crossfire config. So useless for VR and nowhere near good enough for 1440P, never mind 4K

      Countdown’s on till Sony completely embarrasses themselves at E3. Beg your mommy to buy you a good PC instead of your poverty chromebook ruggies 🙂
