Difference of PS4 Pro HDD Vs PS4 Pro SSD

Wanna know how much the difference of having SSD on your PS4 Pro? Well, DigitalFoundry just do a comparison benchmark on both PS4 and PS4 Pro running on HDD and SSD. If you’re planning to upgrade your PS4 Pro with SSD, you should watch first the video of DigitalFoundry below.

Does PS4 Pro's use of SATA 3 result in faster SSD loading times? We put this to the test, installing the same OCZ Trion 100 SSD to both the original PS4, and the PS4 Pro - where results aren't quite as successful as we'd hoped.

And here are the result of comparison benchmark:

Fallout 4 Benchmark
Base PS4 + 500GB HGST 5400rpm HDD: 55.30 seconds
Base PS4 + 480GB OCZ Trion 100 SSD: 29.06 seconds
PS4 Pro + 500GB HGST 5400rpm HDD: 48.54 seconds
PS4 Pro + 480GB OCZ Trion 100 SSD: 26.40 seconds

The Witcher 3 Benchmark

Base PS4 + 500GB HGST 5400rpm HDD: 1 minute and 32.30 seconds
Base PS4 + 480GB OCZ Trion 100 SSD: 1 minute and 9.20 seconds
PS4 Pro + 500GB HGST 5400rpm HDD: 1 minute and 18.60 seconds
PS4 Pro + 480GB OCZ Trion 100 SSD: 1 minute and 7.30 seconds

Just Cause 3 Benchmark

Base PS4 + 500GB HGST 5400rpm HDD: 1 minute and 10.20 seconds
Base PS4 + 480GB OCZ Trion 100 SSD: 43.52 seconds
PS4 Pro + 500GB HGST 5400rpm HDD: 1 minute and 16.40 seconds
PS4 Pro + 480GB OCZ Trion 100 SSD: 42.29 seconds

Project Cars Benchmark

Base PS4 + 500GB HGST 5400rpm HDD: 50.30 seconds
Base PS4 + 480GB OCZ Trion 100 SSD: 40.26 seconds
PS4 Pro + 500GB HGST 5400rpm HDD: 43.58 seconds
PS4 Pro + 480GB OCZ Trion 100 SSD: 41.03 seconds

Judging from the benchmark it really improves the loading times of the game, especially on Just Cause 3 it reduce almost 26.68 seconds of loading for base PS4 and 34.11 seconds of PS4 Pro.
