Sony has revamped the internals of the latest PS5 model. A The remastered PS5 model is starting to appear In Australia last month and now YouTube – Austin Evans Take a look inside and discover the many changes. Sony uses a new smaller motherboard for the PS5, different cooling and they changed the SSD case.
All of these changes add weight, but there are no obvious changes to the exterior of the PS5. The really big change is the PS5’s updated motherboard. It’s shrunk by about two inches, and the PS5’s cooling is slightly different thanks to the addition of a heat pipe and a smaller heatsink on the back.
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a redesigned cooling solution on the PS5. Sony shipped a revised model last year With a small heatsink. According to Evans, the new motherboard and heatsink on the PS5 2022 now weigh about 2.5 pounds, which is a pound lighter than the original design.
Sony has also moved a lot of components with this new motherboard design, and that means the CMOS battery is now completely hidden under the heatsink. It’s been revealed before, making the switch easier, but Evans claims you now have to completely disassemble the PS5 to swap out the CMOS battery.
The SSD case has also been changed in this new PS5 mod. It does not have a circuit board along its entire length, but instead has a metal exposure. It’s not immediately clear why Sony changed this particular part of the PS5 design, but Evans hopes it could help improve heat dissipation.
All of these changes could contribute to some of the PS5’s real-world advantages. Evans claims that this new PS5 model consumes around 20-30 watts less when gaming, while still offering the same volume and heat output.
“Sony has reduced the size of almost everything, including the motherboard and internal packaging, to make it lighter and almost certainly cheaper (for them).” Evans said on Twitter. All-new PS5 model Sony has increased the price of the PS5 outside the US. Sony has increased the price of the PS5 In UK, Europe, Japan, China, Australia, Mexico and Canada. Prices rose 10 percent in Europe, 21 percent in Japan and nearly 6 percent in the UK.
