PlayStation 4's 4.5 Update Launching Tomorrow, 'Boost Mode" coming to PS4 Pro

Tomorrow marks the release date for the PlayStation 4’s massive 4.5 update bringing a list of new features, benefiting PlayStation 4 Pro owners.

PlayStation 4 Pro 4.5 Update Upcoming features:

  • 2D games performance increase when using PlayStation VR
  • Voice chat feature through Remote Play added
  • Ability to use external HDDs or SSDs with your PlayStation 4

Along with these features, upcoming ‘Boost Mode’ for the PlayStation 4 Pro will also be released, essentially ramping up the core clocks on the console’s GPU and CPU squeezing the best possible performance.

According to the official blog post:

“This feature has been designed to provide better performance for select legacy titles that have not been patched to take advantage of the PS4 Pro’s faster CPU and its faster and double-sized GPU”

This feature will essentially provide a more stable frame rate experience for your PlayStation 4 Pro, allowing you to maintain games at capped 30 or 60 FPS, keeping them locked and not fluctuate in the more graphically intensive games.

The update will release on March 9, 2017.
