One of the most underrated features of PlayStation 4 Pro is the so called boost mode. We've made a list of games that have seen an increase in performance thanks to this mode and narrowed it down to some of the most prominent titles.

Arguably one of the best features of the PS4 Pro is the boost mode - a feature that allows certain titles to run better on the console. Today, we're bringing you a list of games that benefit from this nifty mode as we take a look at the game's FPS and some other things that the boost mode brings to the table.

It's important to note that this mode affects the game's FPS and loading times only, as opposed to an actual PS4 Pro patch which offers visual enhancements as well. But not all games can benefit from this feature, so here are some of the more prominent titles that see an increase in performance with the boost mode turned on.

  • Battlefield 4: the boost mode allows textures to load faster and the game has steady 60FPS in multiplayer.
  • Bioshock Infinite: with the boost mode on, the game has a locked framerate of 60FPS, as opposed to a varying number with the boost mode turned off.
  • Bloodborne: the boost mode locks the game's FPS to 30, ensuring a steady performance.

Even though these are all older titles, most of these games still have rather solid player bases and communities, so why not enjoy them even more with higher FPS? It's a very handy feature indeed, and we strongly recommend you enable it on your PS4 Pro.
