PS4 Pro Day One Release Titles - How Will They Compare To Their PC Counterparts?

Written by Ed SW on Thu, Nov 3, 2016 1:30 PM

So for all PS4 gamers out there and those that are just interested, we now have a full list of PS4 Pro titles available from the get go. It’s just been released which Playstation titles are going to of had their 4k makeover for the day one release of the PS4 Pro on November 10th 2016. An exciting time for anyone who’s decided to upgrade their PS4 as it means the full usage from their new and improved CPUs and GPUs. Basically this list is so far what you’ll be buying the Pro for.

The question on our minds, is one of healthy competition, how will the non-exclusive titles compare to those available on PC? Where will the PS4 Pro’s performance slot in? The titles we’ll have our eye on are Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Rise of the Tomb Raider and the Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. Given that we’ve found these titles to have put up a good fight on our trusty PC rigs it’ll be interesting to see how the gap will be bridged on visuals and performance.

The list for day one is below, while also there are more set to be optimised for the end of this year, 45 more apparently. It has also been confirmed that all first party titles will be Pro ready post 2017.

Tell us what you think - Is the amount of games worth the new console? How do you think they’ll compare?

The List Is as Follows:

  • Battlefield 1
  • Bound
  • Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3
  • Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered
  • Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
  • Driveclub VR

  • Firewatch
  • Helldivers
  • Hitman
  • Hustle Kings
  • inFAMOUS First Light
  • inFAMOUS Second Son

Looking at the specs it seems that the graphics are in the low end spectrum of PC graphics cards, like a GTX 750 or maybe a R9 380. I compared all the numbers to my card and it seems a long way off.


I really see this console as maybe crawling to 4k with Medium graphics at best. It is still a low speed processor with a decent bump. It will be a great 1080p box but questionable at best.

750? That would pretty much mean it would be a downgrade compared to original PS4. I would personally guess something around rx470 or GTX 1050Ti.

It's 4.2 TFLOPS.... being an AMD Polaris based GPU, that puts it just under a 470 which comes in at 4.9 TFLOPS.... so it's probably gonna be a bit more powerful than a 1050 TI, but not quite as powerful as a 470.... much more powerful than a 750 or 750 TI

Pretty close Darknatexs.... the 470D comes in at roughly 4.4 TFLOPS

You can't compare GPU's based on TFLOPS alone... You have to factor in VRAM, clock speeds, memory bandwidth, the list goes on... Asus Strix GTX 970 is 4.2 TFLOPS & AMD R9 290 is 4.8 TFLOPS, but based on GD comparison the 970 is 11% better, and performs better in real life.

Nwmafia. It is a pretty accurate measure when comparing among the same architecture or two very similar architectures, of course you can't compare between brands, but the PS4 GPU is AMD Pascal and the RX 470 is AMD Pascal. Also, you may want to take GD rating with a grain of salt, 1050 TI 12% better than a 960 umm no!

I'll add that the TFLOPS rating IS taking the clock speed of the GPU into account, and both the PS4P and 470 are using GDDR 5 RAM, though I'm unsure if the PS4P is on a 128 or 256 bus..... so I think the TFLOPS rating would be a really good way to get an idea of what the GPU of the PS4P is capable of.

You have to remember as well that the system uses APU's really so that could throw off your TFLOPS theory.

Do we even know for certain that the PS4P will use an APU this time? It's very possible it could be using a dedicated graphics chip..... I remember even hearing a little buzz about the PS4P using crossfire, so like essentially 2 RX 460s... I personally think the TFLOPS rating is comparable to existing Pascal cards.

Nwmafia - the 11% difference also takes into account tdp. you have to read everything on the right side of the screen to get the full story.

Darknaetexs, one theory I've heard is that AMD GPUs are bottlenecked by a ton of driver overhead, and that's part of the reason you'd see nvidia cards with same or lower FP ratings beating them... but when you have APIs like DX12 and Vulkan that access the hardware more directly, that driver overhead disappears.

Essentially... what that theory implies is that AMD cards are a ton more powerful than most of us are actually aware and are largely being held back by the drivers.... this is a theory I've seen on a tech review site that was attempting to explain the performance differences between AMD and Nvidia cards.

Mostly getting PS4P to get a new console with a new warranty and a new controller. Will sell my old PS4 to my friend so the Pro ends up costing just about 200€ :)

But if you do not own a 4K television then the PS4P would be pointless for you then since that system is aimed towards people that has a 4K display/TV.

Honestly 4K tvs are where 1080p tvs were a couple years ago, some highend one for ridiculous amounts of cash..... and also some basic models in the under $500 range.... I've seen 43 inch 4K TVs going for as low as $300, 4K is mainstream now... atleast with TVs.

Actually, I am planning to get a 4K monitor soon for PC and PS4 use :)


And according to Sony PS4P will give upgrades over normal PS4 even on 1080p. Besides my current PS4 is over 2 years old and warranty has ran out and the controllers isn't in great shape either. So i'll rather get rid of old one and get PS4P since it doesn't cost too much :)

XCOM on consloe ? wasn't it a PC exclusive ? I wish there never were exclusives to begin with. Games like The Last Of Us, Uncharted 4, and God Of War IV can really shine on PC. However, it seems "money" is what drive devs and artists now.

Ever since the PS2 console manufacturers have fewer and fewer "exclusives" to con people into buying the consoles with. So here's to hoping one day the "exclusives" disappear and we can just play whatever game on whatever device.

i'd rather have those games as exclusives. It allows studios to completely focus on a single system. otherwise it would probably extend development time and would never look as good on similarly priced PC's.

Do you seriously believe that myth? first of all most consoles exclusive look like a joke compared to a PC version of a multiplat game, secondly having more development time is a GOOD thing, pressuring devs to meet a deadline will very likely affect exclusives in a negative way, even exclusive get delays.

You serious ? We're in the era of game engines, which means you can package your game to whichever platform you desire with just some tweaks and a click (it's the case for Unreal Engine for an example)

I've got a fair few games that'll get upgraded and i'll go back and replay(definitely shadow of mordor and the last of us)...can't decide whether to get a new one too..maybe FFXV or Dishonored?:/

Another thing is I can't wait to have normal buttons again...this random eject crap with the old touch buttons drives me mental...3 o'clock in the morning and my PS4 will turn itself on and continuously try to eject a disc D:

well what im sure of it's the FPS Cap which will remain on mafia 3 and i experienced it on a not so stable 60FPS.
by the way i enjoyed the game...

Yeah, the game is actually playable and somewhat enjoyable, played at max settings 40-50 fps with something more powerful than a 750 csn run this at low, despite the crazy bugs and glitches and cartoonish sky xD.
