Lightweight PlayStation 5 copes better with APU cooling despite smaller heatsink

Published

on

After the release of the new version of the PlayStation 5 console with model number CFI-1100B, the first reviews appeared in which it was said that this console was worse than the original, because the air temperature of their vents was higher than that of the previously released PlayStation 5. This was due to the reduced a radiator on the new model, which is 600 g lighter.

Dr. Aris Mpitziopoulos also tested the new PlayStation 5 revision to verify the earlier findings of early reviewers. Interestingly, despite the higher air vents in the new PS5, the CPU temperature was actually much lower at 40.8 ° C, with no throttling.

As such, it looks like Sony has implemented better APU cooling in the new version, despite the fact that the new heatsink has much fewer fins. At the same time, the updated model consumes about the same amount of energy as the original.

However, the new version still has a drawback: the temperature of the NAND memory rises to 48.2 ° C, while the original console had a temperature of 40.8 ° C.

Queues on the streets for new iPhones are a thing of the past for various reasons. Now the actual queues for video cards, processors and consoles.

A large retailer BestBuy recently announced that it had acquired another batch of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X game consoles. As a result, impressive queues formed to some of the more than 300 stores indicated in the announcement. In at least one city, the queue consisted of about 250 people.

Not only did people start queuing up a day before the start of sales, but in some cases they continued to stand outside the store in the pouring rain. The store promised to sell only one set-top box per hand, which increased the chances of ordinary people getting the console. Considering that this was the first such sale of set-top boxes in the BestBuy network since the devices entered the market a year ago, it is not surprising that the excitement was significant.
