Mark Cerny is set to shed new light on the PS4 Pro later this week, according to German YouTube channel Inside PlayStation.
Citing an invitation to a London media event called ‘Future of Play’ (November 2-3), it’s believed that the Lead System Architect will not only divulge additional technical tidbits, but also introduce a series of playable demos for Horizon: Zero Dawn, Days Gone, Gran Turismo Sport, Call of Duty: Warfare Infinite and Nioh. This is our first indication that Team Ninja’s long-in-development title will feature Pro support.
In a separate interview with Japanese outlet AV Watch, Cerny touched base on the issue of native 4K, before claiming that a console needs at least 8 teraflops of processing power to output in 4K. The PS4 Pro has 4.2, for the sake of perspective, a significant boost over the PS4’s 1.84 teraflops. That means the Pro model calls upon a feature known as ‘checkerboard rendering’ to achieve an image “extremely close to 4K.”
PS4 Pro launches worldwide on November 10.
