Speaking of the PlayStation 4, Sony has introduced a new PS4 model(CUH-2200).
However, No hardware changes have been listed by Sony Interactive Entertainment but, the change in model number suggests that Sony has done a minor revision of the internal components.
Furthermore, both Sony and Microsoft have been pushing 4K gaming in the console market and to some extent, Microsoft has been successful in doing that with Xbox One X.
However, according to AMD’s Timothy Lottes both PS4 Pro and Xbox One X don’t have the power required to achieve true 4K gaming on consoles as next-gen consoles require at least 7.4 TFLOPs of GPU compute to play games at native 4K/30 FPS with PS4’s image quality.
For comparison sake, the PS4 Pro features 4.2 TFLOPs of GPU compute while the Xbox One X features 6 TFLOPs.
