Here’s what’s different about the latest PS5 model

Sony’s PS5 console recently got an upgrade, shedding more weight from the Disc and Digital models. Externally, the console still looks the same, but internally there have been some big changes to the hardware.

YouTuber Austin Evans opened up the latest PS5 iteration and found that the motherboard is about two inches smaller and a new system was installed to disperse heat. The SSD enclosure no longer has a PCB running the entire length of the device and has more exposed metal, which Evans believes will dissipate heat more efficiently.

The cooling setup now has an additional heat pipe and smaller heatsink, and the entire setup is now around a pound lighter than the original PS5’s hardware. As DIY YouTuber Matt Perks discovered when he built a slim PS5, the heat sink elements take up most of the space inside that custom console. Perks managed to make a PS5 Slim console by removing the heat sink, but needed to install a large liquid cooling setup for his project and hide it behind his TV cabinet.

As for tangible benefits, Evans theorized that this model will draw 20-30 watts less power during gaming sessions, but heat and noise output will remain roughly the same. This new model comes at a time when Sony has increased the price of PS5 consoles in most parts of the world, citing various financial factors as the cause of this decision.

In other PlayStation news, a new gray camo console skin will be available later this year and the latest system software update has added support for 1440p HDMI video output, game folders and various social features.
