Rumored Specs On PlayStation 4.5 (Project NEO) Has Appeared

We’ve covered the rumors of an incrementally upgraded PlayStation (or PlayStation 4K/4.5), which at the time, were just rumors without substantial specs.

Now, Giant Bomb is reporting on detailed specs for the rumored PlayStation 4.5 or Project Neo as its called internally.

If you’re worried that you’ll have to upgrade your PlayStation 4 to the NEO, worry not, as it seems that the NEO “will exist alongside it [PlayStation 4] and use the same user environment.”

The report indicates that the NEO will “feature a higher clock speed than the original PS4, an improved GPU, and higher bandwidth on the memory.” A brief list of the specs shows the comparison between the original PlayStation 4 and NEO, which you can see below.

Original PlayStation 4:

CPU: 8 Jaguar Cores at 1.6 GHz
GPU: AMD GCN, 18 CUs at 800 MHz
Memory: 8 GB GDDR5, 176 GB/s

NEO:

CPU: 8 Jaguar Cores at 2.1 GHz
GPU: Improved AMD GCN, 36 CUs at 911 MHz
Memory: 8 GB GDDR5, 218 GB/s

Of course, based on the two specs, it is possible that Sony will encourage developers to create two sets of PlayStation 4 games: one that can be played on all models (i.e. base games) or ones that use the NEO’s extra power (i.e. NEO games).

The interesting point to note is that Sony insists that developers do not make “NEO-only” games or “separate NEO users from original PS4 players while playing on PSN.” Rather, all PlayStation 4 games are expected to have a “base mode” that works on all models, and an optional “NEO Mode” with features such as 4K, improved graphics or processing.

If any of this looks to be true, are you willing to trade-up your PlayStation 4 console to a more powerful version? Let us know in the comments.
