Sony finally unveiled the Playstation 4 Neo (or rather, Playstation 4 Pro) at its Playstation Meeting earlier today, and the Playstation 4 Pro specs are pretty fancy to look at. Unfortunately, despite the hopes of many the console is still apparently inferior to the Xbox One Scorpio, Microsoft’s own console that’s designed for 4K.

To start off with, the Playstation 4K is actually only marginally more expensive than the actual Playstation 4 is right now, being 399 instead of 359. The Playstation 4 Pro specs have even been revealed alongside what players can expect to find in the console’s original box. These include: the console itself, one wireless Dualshock 4 controller, a monaural headset, a power cord, an HDMI cable, and a USB cable.

The actual Playstation 4 Pro specs are as follows: It has a single-chip custom processor, with an x86-64 AMD “Jaguar” CPU with eight cores and a 4.20 teraflop Radeon-based graphics engine GPU. This is a good bit less than the Xbox One Scorpio’s own reputed 6 teraflops, so it’s likely that now the Xbox One will have the better graphics for once.

The rest of the Playstation 4 Pro specs include an eight gigabyte GDDR5 memory, a 1 terabyte hard drive, and a read-only optical drive. Its dimensions are 295 millimeters by 55 millimeters by 327 millimeters (going by height x width x depth).

In addition to all of those specs, the Playstation 4 Pro will be coming out on November 10, after the Playstation 4 Slim will be coming out on September 15. It will cost 399, while the Playstation 4 Slim will cost 299, around a hundred dollars less.

With all of the games that are coming out at around the time that the Playstation 4 Pro will be released, it’s likely that Sony will still be getting a great number of sales of the console, even if it isn’t as souped-up as the Xbox One Scorpio is.
