Posted: 03:25PM

Rumors began to swirl last month about a new version of the PlayStation 4 with support for 4K resolutions. Giant Bomb is now reporting from "multiple sources" that the new PS4 is codenamed NEO and will feature updated hardware and functionality. The original PS4 had an eight core CPU at 1.6 GHz, 18 GPU cores at 800 MHz, and 8GB of GDDR5 at 176 GB/s. NEO will have eight cores at 2.1 GHz, 36 updated GPU cores at 911 MHz, and 8GB of GDDR5 at 218 GB/s. Sony will begin requiring developers to ship games with a "Base Mode" and "NEO Mode" in October. Base Mode will run on current systems and will run the same on the NEO, while NEO Mode will utilize the additional hardware to provide "increased and more stable frame rate and higher visual fidelity, at least when those games run at 1080p on HDTVs." The NEO will support 4K output but will not require games to support native 4K resolution. The NEO is expected to have an MSRP of $399 and the new model could potentially drive down the price of current models.
