The PS4 Pro will definitely not be capable enough to render most games in native 4K- that’s why Sony are employing the ingenious Checkerboard upscaling technique. That said, it does seem to have enough grunt to still be able to run some games in native 4K- we know that The Last of Us Remastered will be one of them, but it looks like a true current generation game will manage it too.
The NBA 2K17 developers have confirmed on Twitter that the game will run in native 4K output on the PlayStation 4 Pro. Not only that, it will maintain a full 60FPS while doing so, too, and also support HDR output. That’s not all, either- NBA 2K17 will output in 4K even if you are playing it on a 1080p HDTV, so that the image quality will noticeably improve, no matter what. Most notably, the developers are promising that 4K rendering, alongside HDR, should lead to softer and better aliasing.
So, this is one technical win for Sony and for 2K Games. NBA 2K17 is out now on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
