There is a rumor circulating that Sony’s new PS5 model will no longer use liquid metal cooling and will feature a smaller processor to ensure cooler performance.
An insider with knowledge about PlayStation has revealed some intriguing new information about what Sony might have in store for its latest console, the new PS5 model.
Recent rumors have been circulating about the potential unveiling of an updated “Slim” model of the PS5 in the near future. Additionally, reports about a PS5 Pro have been making rounds. While Sony has not officially commented on these speculations, a new leak has emerged, shedding light on the differences between the PS5 and its rumored mid-gen refresh, the new PS5 model.
Sony’s new PS5 model will not use liquid metal cooling
According to the reliable source, Zuby_Tech, the new PS5 model is identified as the CFI-1300 Series. It is said to feature a 5nm APU, an improvement from the 7nm APU found in the original launch system. Moreover, the new model will not include a liquid metal cooling solution.
Why are these details significant? Well, the shift to a 5nm APU offers several key benefits for the new PS5 model. One significant advantage is improved energy efficiency, resulting in less power consumption during operation.
Moreover, the reduced die size and enhanced thermal efficiency of the 5nm APU are expected to result in cooler console temperatures. Gamers may appreciate a quieter system with better heat dissipation, providing a more comfortable and enjoyable gaming session.
The absence of the liquid metal cooling solution is particularly interesting because it received considerable attention before and after the PS5’s release. The leaker explains that Sony can forego this cooling solution because the new APU won’t generate as much heat as the previous one.
The question of whether these upgrades are for the PS5 Pro or the new PS5 model that will probably replace the ordinary PS5 has caused some confusion. Zuby_Tech, however, asserts in later tweets that such information most likely relates to the console’s rumored PS5 Slim Model.
Rumors on PS5 Slim Model
Well, this isn’t the first time we are hearing about the upcoming PS5 Slim model.
Tom Henderson, a well-known reporter, also recently chimed in with more insights on social media regarding the new PS5 model. He mentioned that he doesn’t have specific information on the recent PlayStation 5 Slim rumors and the exact time of its reveal. However, he believes that a reveal soon makes sense if the release is scheduled for September.
He also mentioned that the new PS5 model might simply be branded as an improved PS5, rather than being explicitly called the “Slim.” According to Henderson, this new model will eventually replace the current PlayStation 5, with the last units hitting store shelves by the end of the year. He had previously reported that this new version of the PS5 would feature a detachable disc drive.
While the claims seem plausible, it’s always wise to wait for official announcements. However, it’s worth noting that Microsoft has hinted at the possibility of a PS5 Slim, as suggested in documents shared during their FTC lawsuit.
Nevertheless, the improved and new PlayStation 5 model with enhanced efficiency and superior cooling capabilities has ignited the excitement of gamers. PlayStation enthusiasts can now look forward to potential upgrades and an unparalleled gaming experience in the near future.
