I'll try to confirm once my download finishes.
The Witcher 3 PS4 Pro Boost Mode
Swamp
The Witcher 3 PS4 Pro Boost Mode 2
Novigrad (actually, might be Oxenfurt? I play this game and I can't tell lol)

Not my footage
Another Bloodborne video. This time I compare Witches from Chalice, because it's the thing that kills the framerate the most.

First is Beast, second is Amateur

Wow, really?
Didn't even know this was possible, considering what they did regarding the gpu.

Even if it's just for games with unstable framerate / resolution, I'm really looking forward to this!

People that think this means 60FPS versions of games are mental.

enjoy your 3-5fps boost.

At least this will now deflect the hatred for Sony on to the individual developers of the games with locked 30fps.

Just for games with unlocked framerates?
i would assume so.

If a game has a hard 30fps lock, 'boost mode' or whatever it's called might prevent certain drops from happening, but it's not gonna deactivate the framerate lock.

Well, The Witcher 3 would greatly benefit from 3-5 extra FPS in certain areas.
