Yeah. Its not as simple as just downclocking because the GPU is not a direct overclock of the current PS4 model. I highly highly doubt they would attempt to do that as it might lower current playability compared to OG PS4.

What you are likely to see is that any current NON-patched PS4 games will now easily hit and hold their FPS targets, and any NON-patched games which had Dynamic Scaling will now run full target resolution constantly.

This is my gut feel.

I reckon a few games would benefit from just running native 1080p like the game "the order". It was a beautiful looking game with all its extra anti aliasing but had to be presented in the extra widescreen format. Cant remember if it was 60fps.

Was one of my favourite games

Damn I forgot about that one. Still on a PS3 here and I have reserved myself from getting the PS4. I have re-run TLOU a few times, would love to play the remastered version!

The order isn't even running at native 1080p but at a vertically cropped resolution and no it was capped at 30fps. I doubt R@D will even bother to patch it since the cropped presentation and fps is part of their "cinematic experience"

I'm going for a 16 night cruise 2 weeks from now. I I'll be picking one up as soon as I get back if the prices aren't too outrageous, otherwise I can hang back until around Christmas for more attractive bundles. I plan on getting and firing up TLOU remastered first!

Because I haven't scrolled through this whole thread, can someone bring me up to speed. Is this just a UHD version of the PS4? What hardware changes are there? My PS4 is relatively new.. not sure if it's really worth shelling out for an upgrade

30% CPU speed increase
2x the GPU power

but still not enough to do true native 4k.

Bigger native HDD.
Relatively unknown value for 1080P owners though some benefits will apply.
Looks like moderate value increase for 4K owners.

PRetty sure i'll pick one up but waiting for a good bundle.

Will take out that 1TB drive swap with the 500GB SSD from my OG PS4 into it. I don't hoard games on the console, and apart from that with a 1TB cap and 100Mbps cable, i dont really need to

Didn't think SSD made much difference to load times?

Not hugely since its SATA2 interface in the PS4, but i made the mistake of putting in a 7200rpm drive and turfed the original drive. It was like a fking jet engine, so i'd rather have a slightly faster SSD than the storage capacity so opted to get the SSD when i got a new drive for it
