The next PlayStation 4 update will finally provide external storage support of up to eight terabytes. This is great news for gamers who have run out of space long ago on the console hard drive.
Also another new feature coming is meant to improve the frame rate and shorter load times for a lot of games for users of the PlayStation 4 Pro. Called “Boost Mode” this will reportedly work on games that haven’t been specifically patched for the Pro. This is to be available in 4.50 software beta.
A PlayStation spokesperson spoke to IGN and provided this statement:
Boost Mode lets PS4 Pro run at a higher GPU and CPU clock speed for smoother gameplay on some PS4 games that were released before the launch of PS4 Pro (and has not been updated to support PS4 Pro).
Games that have a variable frame rate may benefit from a higher frame rate, and load times may be shorter in some games too.
