There are rumors going around that Sony Interactive Entertainment is working on optimizing the PlayStation 4’s system software for additional performance.
With the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 4 Pro, Sony Interactive Entertainment has released two state-of-the-art consoles that provide users with games at full HD or 4K resolutions. Those responsible can not upgrade the hardware of the available consoles, but you can optimize the software. If you believe the industry insider Tidux, Sony Interactive Entertainment plans to do just that.
According to the insider, the console manufacturer is working on a new system software to extract extra performance from the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. Tidux wrote on Twitter that the operating system of the console should be optimized so that the game developers have more power available for their projects.
Furthermore Sony Interactive Entertainment should have optimized the “Rapid Packed Math” feature of the AMD Vega and already achieve great results. These results are to be felt in some first-party titles as well as in games like the upcoming open-world shooter “Far Cry 5”. However, one should expect no miracles. The extra RAM that could be freed up by optimizing the operating system could be used, among other things, for better texture. However, keep in mind that Sony Interactive Entertainment has not commented on these rumors.
