Playstation 4.5 Named “Neo” Specs Revealed

We heard back in March that an upgraded PS4 might be in the works, and now GameSpot sister site Giant Bomb reports that the “PS4.5” is codenamed “Neo” and features upgraded CPU, GPU, and RAM.

Although the report says all games shipping in or after October will need to support the Neo, the new console might not actually release the same month. The documents the report is based on says developers can launch Neo-ready games before it releases. Games that release prior to October can take advantage of the Neo’s upgrades, but developers will need to patch their games to support it.


We’ve reached out to Sony for comment and will update this article as we receive more information.

In the meantime, you can read the full report over at Giant Bomb and check out the Neo’s specifications below:
