Gamers Nexus’ video:Yes, there's a new PlayStation 5 - and yes, the CFI-1100 model has a revised cooling solution... but to what extent do the changes actually matter to the end user, and is gaming performance unchanged? Steve Burke from Gamers Nexus joins us to give us the definitive word on the hardware revisions!
There’s a change to Sony's PlayStation 5 heatsink in new models, so we worked with @Digital Foundry to get one for PS5 thermal testing, brief fan differences, & more. Digital Foundry contributed critical tests to validate the console's gaming performance. If there were major differences in this aspect of the console revision, it would impact us on the thermal testing side of things. DF's experience in the gaming performance aspect gave us reassurance in our testing, so please check out their video!
