PlayStation 4 Neo to auto detect TV resolution

One thing that most fans are expecting is the fine graphical renders that the PS4 Neo will be offering. The document claims that the console will be able to auto detect the resolution of the player’s TV and output to establish the appropriate buffer.

This means that depending on the screen display in use, the console can automatically determine if it is 1920 x 1080 or 3840 x 2160. It does the trick through the aid of a “checkerboard rendering” whenever a 4K TV is connected according to Video Gamer.

Slash Gear notes that the two consoles will co-exist in the marketplace. This means that the PS4 and PS4.5. The PS4 Neo will be offered via the same and with the same apps, software and the same online community as the PS4.
