Recently, at least in Japan and Australia, a new PS5 model is sold. So far, it was actually known only that the new edition relies on another screw, but apparently the changes go far beyond.

The biggest change in the new PS5 model : The internal heatsink falls significantly smaller than in the launch model Technik-YouTuber Austin Evans. What the reason should be that the console is exhausting hotter air and is easier.

PS5: Youtuber takes the new model apart, which he discovered

That’s why it’s all about: The PS5 does not even get a year after launch missed a new edition. In itself that is not big surprising, something happens again and again. This update of the console seems to have changed a lot more than first accepted. The first thing that struck was the loose screw of the stand:

Smaller Heatsink: Technology Youtuber Austin Evans seemed to get a new PS5 model and has taken the good piece first. Above all, the following points have noticed:

  • Very much smaller heatsink
  • 300 grams of lighter PS5
  • W-LAN module is different wired
  • Fan puffs warmer air out
  • Ps5 runs a little bit quieter
  • Power consumption has risen minimally

Runs the PS5 hotter? The question can not be answered as easy as it seems. In any case, the Heatsink falls much smaller. Normally, such a part helps to better dissipate the heat of CPU and GPU. It could therefore be quite possible that the PS5 internally becomes a few degrees warmer.

The three to five degrees Celsius warmer exhaust air, which comes out of the PS5, could confirm that. On the other hand, it could simply mean that the warm air can be better transported out of the console thanks to the new fan, such as VGC writes.

Austin Evans holds the solution but overall for worse:

How exactly the heat development looks internally, which changes through the smaller heatsink and whether the PS5 has finally have better W-Lan, the time and some further investigations and tests must show. Until then, we have no choice but to wait and hope that the probably something warmer PS5 will not become a problem in the long term.

The whole thing could also have to deal with that copper apparently becomes more and more scarce and wanted to save Sony at this point. That the PS5 is now no minus business at least in a version when selling, could do with this decision.

How ​​do you see it? Are you afraid of more exhaust heat, do you think of the smaller heatsink could avenge yourself?
