Today, Sony has launched a major software update for Playstation 4. PS4 update 4.50 is now live with PS4 Pro Boost Mode and external hard drive support.
PS4 Pro Boost Mode
PS4 games needed to have updates to boost their performance on the PS4 pro. While some of the PS4 games had this option, many others didn’t. Once the update 4.50 is installed, the Boost Mode can be enabled in Settings>System. With this option, older games can achieve higher or more stable framerates and potentially even load faster on the PS4 Pro. Sony quoted,
This can provide a noticeable frame rate boost to some games with variable frame rates, and can provide frame rate stability for games that are programmed to run at 30 Hz or 60 Hz. Depending on the game, the increased CPU speed may also result in shorter load times.
PS4 external hard drive support
Any game or application can be installed on the external hard drive, with its storage capacity being 8TB. There a lot of models for the external hard drive, to choose from.
Apart from these two updates, voice chat via Remote Play on PC, Mac, and Xperia devices are available now.
