what's up guys is that from Texas and today we're going to be comparing the brand new Playstation 4 pro against the PlayStation 4 slim the main difference between the two consoles is the specs the ps4 slim is powered by an 8 core AMD Jaguar CPU clocked at 1.6 gigahertz a 1.84 teraflop AMD GPU eight gigs of gddr5 vram and it comes with a 500 gigabyte hard drive the ps4 pearl uses the same eight core Jaguar CPU but this time it's overclocks - 2.1 gigahertz a more powerful 4.2 teraflop AMD GPU eight gigs of gddr5 vram plus one gigabyte of ddr3 memory and also it has a one terabyte hard drive this gives the ps4 pro a 30% boost and CPU performance at 100 percent greater GPU performance over the ps4 slim the extra one gig of ram is used for background apps allowing games to have extra memory to use as expected power consumption is quite different between the two systems the ps4 slim uses up to 165 watts of power while the ps4 pro uses almost double at 310 watts the stock hard drive on either system can easily be replaced for a higher capacity one the ps4 slim uses SATA 2 which will limit the transfer rates at up to 300 megabytes per second the ps4 pro uses the newer SATA 3 connection which ups the maximum transfer speed up to 600 megabytes per second this allows the ps4 pro to take advantage of the speed increases provided by most SSDs both consoles feature a blu-ray disc drive plus Ethernet Bluetooth and a 5 gigahertz Wi-Fi connectivity the ps4 slim features 2 USB 3.1 gen2 on ports and is HDR capable the ps4 pro adds an extra USB port an optical audio port and can support 4k in addition to HDR the DualShock 4 controller included with each system is also slightly upgraded the controller can now be used over USB to reduce lag and the touchpad can now display a portion of the light bar as well each system shares a similar layered design with the ps4 pro being larger in every dimension the ps4 is slim measures about eleven point three by ten point four by 1.5 and weighs approximately four point six pounds while the ps4 pro is about twelve point eight by eleven point six by two point one and weighs upwards of seven point two pounds the clean design definitely stands out but the only color option as a right now is black but if you want the option to customize your new ps4 you can always put ad ban skin on it I will drop a link down below in case you guys are interested so moving on to the games the ps4 pro shows a noticeable difference compared to the ps4 slim the ps4 Pro was designed for 4k and games such as Skyrim special edition and the Last of Us remastered can be played in native 4k other games that have been updated for the ps4 Pro such as in chart at four will run at 1440p up from 1080p on the ps4 slim games on the ps4 Pro also look better even on a 1080p display in this case any game that receives a pro patch will downsample to 1080p some games will even get you extra visual advantages such as improved textures and better frame rates any game that has not been updated will play the same as it does on a ps4 slim with the exception of being up scaled to 4k the first game is infamous first light this game is already very dark in contrast II but HDR mode definitely changes that for the better the game shows more overall color and detail in the shadows and highlights on the ps4 pro version as opposed to the brown look on the ps4 slim the particle effects are also given a visual upgrade on a ps4 pro now the game can run at 1080p on the ps4 Pro giving it a sharper image the second game is uncharted 4 on the ps4 pro the game is sharper due to it being rendered at a higher resolution of 1440p the multiplayer mode runs at the same 60fps as it does on the ps4 slim but at a resolution of 1080p instead of 900p just like infamous first light uncharted 4 supports HDR as well certain areas feel more lifelike in HDR mode especially thanks to its lifted shadows and controlled highlights the ps4 slim and pro also allow you to capture your gameplay on the ps4 slim screenshots are limited to a resolution of 1080p and videos are recorded in 720p at 30fps now on the ps4 Pro screenshots are now in 4k and recordings are in 1080p you can also stream gameplay to youtube and 1080p 60 FPS streaming quality over remote play or share play is now 1080p as well an increase from 720p on the ps4 slim on top of all that the ps4 Pro will render the operating system in 4k so even apps like the web browser will remain crisp in conclusion the ps4 pro is the console to get if you only 4k TV or want the best graphics possible from a console system it is also an appealing upgrade to current ps4 owners at the price of 399 for anyone that doesn't own a ps4 and wants to get one at a lower price then the ps4 slim might be a better option costing less at $2.99 it is a good value that still offers a great gaming experience as always I'll drop a link to both of these down below if you guys want to check it out if you guys enjoy these comparisons want to see more like these in the future be sure to hit that like button as always I will see you in the next video
