    Sony is currently pushing a new firmware update to its PlayStation 4 console. It’s a beta preview of the update, version 4.50. And it added a new feature to the PS4 Pro console which the early owners of the console would find pretty useful. Many old PS4 titles run better on the new hardware which requires no further optimization by developers. Once you’ve install the update, there would be a “Boost Mode” option added to the settings menu. And only the more powerful Pro models will have this new option, the regular PS4 won’t.

    A company spokesperson told The Verge that when the Boost Mode is activated, it “lets PS4 Pro run at a higher GPU and CPU clock speed in order to improve gameplay on some PS4 games that were released before the launch of PS4 Pro,” He also claimed “Games that have a variable frame rate may benefit from a higher frame rate, and load times may be shorter in some games too.”

    Sony is in no way saying that it would work well for all titles, but Boost Mode still shows Sony’s sincere attempt to improve the user experience of the already powerful console. Other than 4K and HDR, now Sony also throws in this feature which helps you improve the experience when playing your old games. Sony also advices that Boost Mode might cause unexpected behavior in some cases with the PS4 Pro running at full speed. Turning off the option should resolve the problem.

    In addition to the Boost Mode, Sony will also add the support for external hard drives to all PS4 models and some redesigned menus. And the new update also lets users to watch 3D Blu-rays in PSVR.
