The PS4 Neo May not Deliver 4K resolution


The new PS4 release date is remains unknown, but according to some rumours, it may release on the 15th of September. 


According to Eurogamer, however, the PS4 Neo may not deliver 4K performance, especially on AAA games. Since the Neo itself is not available, a computer with AMD’s Polaris 10 GPU was leveraged at clock speeds that mimic the hardware’s leaked internals. The results are not particularly positive. 

The Polaris 10 GPU was compared with Radeon RX 480, and this report showed that Radeon RX 480  can run up to 1266 MHz while Neo’s alleged GPU can only deliver 911 MHz. This clock speed may not be bad for a closed box system, but analysts believe that with this clock speed, it’s not possible to deliver decent 4k performance. The report said that on 1440p you will not get stable frames and it may result in a hazy 4K effect. In 1080p it is believed that you may achieve a solid 60 fps. These results are quite surprising because 4K performance on the console was pretty much a given at this point.

We’ll obviously able to verify these results only once the console is released, so here’s hoping for the best.
