Sony has released a new PS4 firmware 5.50 beta, is currently being tested for all those who have chosen to enroll in the program. At the moment all the news that the Japanese manufacturer will introduce with this update are not known, but one is suggested by Sony itself and could represent an important turning point for PlayStation 4 Pro.
After adding the Boost Mode with firmware 4.50, thanks to which you can use part of the extra hardware of PS4 Pro to improve the performance in non-patched games, now it seems that even the supersampling can be managed freely by the system, so offer better image quality even for all users who have not connected their PlayStation 4 Pro to a 4K UHD screen.
The image you can see above (in Polish) relates to the warning that accompanies the activation of this mode. With this, Sony informs us of the fact that supersampling could cause a reduced frame rate in some titles and not all games will have comparable or obvious benefits. In any case, once activated, the function will allow the console to generate images of quality comparable to those of a 4K TV even on screens with 2K resolution or lower, all for the benefit of a minor aliasing.
This feature is already supported by several titles that have introduced specific patches to exploit the hardware of PlayStation 4 Pro, however, the arrival of native support to supersampling will allow the console to offer a better visual quality out of the box, without having to wait for the arrival of a dedicated patch.
