Playstation 4 Pro vs Playstation Slim

Posted by Chia Keanie 03/02/2017 Console News,

Sony has recently released the Playstation 4 Slim, and recently announced that the Playstation 4 Pro will come on the market around next month, however Sony Malaysia is experiecing some delays for the Malaysian market. Both of the PlayStations are an improvement on the previous original Playstation 4. Do you already know which one you want to buy? In this blog topic I am going to discuss the differences between the Playstation 4 Pro and the Playstation 4 Slim.

 

Fast Facts

 

Playstation 4 Slim – The differences with the original Playstation 4 are mostly aesthetic. Sony claimed that the Slim will consume less power (electric), and be more quiet and compact than the previous but the biggest feature compared to the original one is that its mostly the size of it with the slim version being thinner and narrower than the previous console. The update includes the matte black on top of the slim instead of the glossy on half the previous PS4 had. Also, What I have noticed is that the touch buttons for power/eject on the PS4 Slim changed, it has physical buttons and it comes in different sizes so you know which button to touch. This is the perfect product for you when it comes to design!

 

Sony Dualshock 4 has received a significant update compared to the old one; the touch pad in the center of the controller shows a light coming from the light bar. There is no longer a need to look at the back of your controller to check what is going on with it! Now you can directly notice what type of light your controller is producing. It’s a small improvement, but the feeling with the previous Dualshock 4 stays the same!

 

Playstation 4 Pro – Here is where the improvement of PS4 comes into part. Not only the design is a huge improvement, but also the power (hardware) of the Playstation compared to the original Playstation.

 

Hardware

 

The PS4 Pro is an upgrade of the original PS4 regarding its GPU. The original PS4 and PS4 slim are using a 1.84-TFLOP CPU compared to the PS4 Pro that uses a Radeon-based 4.20 TFLOPS graph processor, which is considered as an improvement. The PS4 Pro’s CPU also receives a clock boost, it is not confirmed yet how much faster it will be than the original PS4’s processor. The storage of the PS4 Pro will be upgraded to 1TB, also the PS4 Slim have a similar upgrade, which means that the PS4 Slim has a 500GB and 1TB version. The PS4 Pro focuses on 4K video/UHD capability while the original PS4 recently got an update to receive HDR (High Dynamic Range) quality and the Slim version has a similar upgrade, but both of them do not have 4k video/UHD technology. Mainly the advantage of the PS4 Pro will be visible when using a 4K TV.

 

Games

 

All the PS4 games will play on all PS4’s. But some of the new games will take advantage of the PS4 Pro’s power (processing power) to improve the performance and graphics. Sony is already developing a patch that is called ‘’forward compatibility’’ where the current games will improve on graphics/performance on the PS4 Pro.

 

Size and Price

 

PS4 Pro: Bigger, RM200 more expensive than the PS4 Slim

 


Ps4 Slim: Slim, RM200 Cheaper than PS4 Pro.

 

The Final Desicion

 

The PS4 has the upper hand in terms of performance and graphics (specs). It’s more powerful and has a higher storage capacity. The benefits will be visible when you are using a 4K TV. While the PS4 Slim is more compact and easy to use, and consumes less power, but the specs are the same as the original PS4. If you want that extra performance than the PS4 Pro will suit you, but if you are looking for a cheaper option that is more compact and consumes less power (electric) than I would choose the PS4 Slim. Since the PS4 Pro is experiecing some delays in Malaysia, I would definitely choose for the PS4 Slim, since it offers around the same specs as the PS4 Pro, for someone without a 4K TV.
