Digital Foundry, which reviews the game system, compared the performances of PS4 Pro and PS4 just released. As a result, with some titles such as "Watch Dogs 2", "Skyrim", "The Last of Us", the PS4 player played a better performance such as frame rate (fps) and PS4 Pro When connecting to the HD display instead of the 4K display, the image quality was downsampled and output, so it seems that there was a case where it was not possible to play very smoothly.

For example, when Watch Dogs 2 is played on PS4 Pro, it works with 1800p (3200 × 1800) resolution by upscaling, but image quality disorder and frame rate reduction which did not occur with conventional PS 4 were seen. Skyrim which is PS4 Pro compatible title can output with 4K native picture quality, but it seems that it was smoother to play with PS4 which outputs with downsampled picture quality. Also, if you play The Last of Us on PS4 Pro, you can play with "4K native picture quality (30fps)" or "1800p (60fps)" and it is a good title that you can experience the power of PS4 Pro including HDR mode, The frame rate tended to decrease frequently.
