The PS4 Pro will consume 145W more power than the PS4

 

The PS4 Pro will consume 145W more power than the PS4 and have the same 8-core AMD Jaguar CPU, though Sony as this time has not stated whether or not the PS4 Pro will be running the CPU at increased clock speeds. 

Below is a table ith all of the confirmed specifications of the PS4 Pro and the original PS4. 

 

 Original PS4PS4 Pro

Memory8GB GDDR58GB GDDR5
GPU TFLOPS1.84TFLOPS4.2TFLOPs
Mass2.1kg3.3kg
Power consumptionMax 165WMax 310W

 

At this time it is expected that the PS4 Pro will also have GDDR5 memory at higher clock speeds in order to help the console to run at increased resolutions and framerates.

  The PS4 Pro will consume 145W more power than the PS4

 

It is expected that the PS4 Pro will be running the memory and CPU at higher clock speeds for additional performance. Even with the PS4 Pro having over two times the GPU performance it is unlikely that the PS4 would consume almost 2 the power with just a change in GPU, especially with the SoC being made on a modern processing node.

Little disappointing that it has the exact same CPU.

Digital Foundry found a few areas in games that are quite CPU limited with the new Xbox One S, Different platform I know but odd that they would stay with the same CPU that's in both former consoles.Quote

If they changed that it would require an extensive amount of work to get it to play games. It would basically be a entire new platform. By only increasing clock speed, it just allows it to run faster. And by inly switching the GPU, it makes it easy to port, then just having a go at increasing resolution, etc


I don't see how it's 300 watts though. If they are using a new Polaris GPU it would be much more power efficient than that even if was a 480Quote

The PS4 Pro has a 36 CU GPU, this means Polaris 10... but I highly doubt that a 900 MHz clocked RX480 can pull much more than 120W. Well, given how GCN works, at that frequency it would probably use less than 100W

Where are the other 200W coming from?Quote

Ridiculously flawed article. Is this what they call journalism now?

1. The max rating of the PSU is not the power consumption of the system.
2. The power consumption of the system has many more factors than the SoC.
3. The original PS4 used a 250W rated PSU, eventually dropping to 230W in chassis updates.
4. Sony DID state whether or not it runs the CPU at higher clock speeds(At the announcement no less), and it indeed does.

The Slim does has a 165W PSU and around 30% lower power consumption than original(Thanks to process node changes). Given that the Pro has double the number of GCN CUs, each at a ~15% higher clock speed(With the GPU being the bulk of the power draw of the chip), while the CPU is running at a ~30% higher clock speed, this power rating is entirely and 100% expected and logical to anyone who has any remote idea of what they're talking about.Quote
