The PlayStation 4 Pro will squeeze some more juice out of God of War even if you do not have a 4K display. Game Director Cory Barlog explained that the upcoming game has a performance mode that continues to make good use of Pro's hardware.
In response to a fan asking if he needs to upgrade to a pro, Barlog said "No, you do not have to, but if you do 4k, it's amazing if you have a 4k If you do not, we have a performance mode that adds extra power to good use and makes the game so fluid! "
The tweet and subsequent responses to other fans do not indicate whether the smoothness means a specific locked frame rate, or whether this performance mode can be toggled or whether the pro is easy automatically detects a non-4K display. Still, for those who have already upgraded to a pro, it's nice to know that the extra power is not wasted.
