"PlayStation 4 Neo" specifications outlined in leaked document

18 Jul 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

The new PlayStation has been developed under the code name “Neo” but Sony has already confirmed that it is indeed coming. In what appears to be a legitimate document “Neo” is described as being more than twice as powerful as the current version. Neo can also run games in 4K.

PS Neo can run games in 4K

After a few months of rumors and speculation, Sony in June 2016 confirmed that it is planning to release a new, more powerful PlayStation console, codenamed “Neo” - or PlayStation “4K”. However, Sony has yet to confirm details, launch date or price.

A technical presentation now appears to have leaked online. In it, it is confirmed that “Neo” will be a high-end version of PlayStation 4 that will support the same games. The news here is that it will be capable of running those games in 4K resolution (or near-4K resolution). The document makes no mention of HDR (high dynamic range), VR or UHD Blu-ray support, which are also rumored for the new console.

The new console will, if we are to believe the document, be more than twice as powerful as the current PlayStation 4 console. The document describes it as having a GPU with “2.3x flops”, which means approximately 4.2 teraflops (1.843 teraflops in PS4). For comparison the upcoming Xbox One “Scorpio” that Microsoft is planning to launch next year will deliver about 6 teraflops.

The leaked document mentions the following specs:

PS4: 8-core 1,6 GHz
PS Neo: 8-core 2,1 GHz (1,3x faster)

PS4: 18 CUs 800 MHz
PS Neo: 36 CUs 911 MHz (2.3x flops)

PS4: 8GB 176 GB/s
PS Neo: 8GB 218 GB/s (1,24x faster)


October launch?

Besides being capable of running games in 4K - if you own a 4K TV - it will also offer some advantages for owners of conventional HD TVs by offering higher and more stable frame rates and better in-game picture detail (in HD obviously).

It is not clear when Sony will launch the new PlayStation console but the document makes it clear that all games launched after October 2016 will need to support the “Neo” mode. That may suggest that Sony is planning to launch it before the Holiday season.

The leaked document has since been removed on claims of copyright but you can still see the most important slides here.
