The PlayStation 4 Pro will contain 1GB more RAM than previously planned, according to lead system architect, Mark Cerny.
Revealed in an interview with IGN, Cerny announced that an additional 1GB of RAM was added to the upcoming Pro console to make it run even smoother.
“We felt games needed a little more memory, about 10 percent more, so we added about 1GB of slow, conventional DRAM to the console,” said Cerny.
The additional DRAM will assist in running games in the background, multitasking, and more. By allowing the slower RAM to handle things that aren’t necessarily in the forefront, the faster GDDR5 RAM can focus on the game or app that gamers are interacting with, allowing it to run even better.
The PlayStation 4 Pro arrives November 10th.
