UPDATE 1,2 (youtuber)
In the charts and in general in the review, Memory I mean the TH58LJT0T24BA4M NAND Flash Memory's temperature, in other words, the SSD's temperature. Yes my bad I call it CPU instead of APU or SoC. Get over it, please
Sony Playstation 5 – Why the new PS5 is even better than the old one and a superficial view is dangerousDisclaimer: The following article is machine translated from the original German, and has not been edited or checked for errors. Thank you for understanding!
How quickly one can be wrong with a superficial and visual evaluation is shown by the video of Austin Evans, which is an example that the size of a YouTube channel does not always stand for the quality of the content. Sure, the PS5’s new cooler is lighter, smaller, and looks slimmer in other ways, but it’s got it all together with the new PCB, so we’re going to prove that the new PS5 is even better than the old one.
For today’s article I (Igor) lend my keyboard to my friend Aris and write the whole thing as a “ghostwriter” on his behalf, to show you what he has found out in his own investigations. Of course, I have also embedded his video at the end and who liked this article should not be afraid to leave a like or subscription there. As always, a lot of work went into today’s investigation, but it was worth it. It’s not about badmouthing a YouTuber or their channel, but it is about the truth. The basis for Austin’s misjudgement is only the optical comparison (picture above) which we have taken from his video.
Important update from 06.09.2021 – 02:45 amSince some readers and colleagues have questioned the measurements at the selected sensor points, there will be a second series of measurements with a total of 12 new sensors as a service in the near future (I hope tomorrow). They are now also stuck to the points that our colleagues used and that were used for comparison. Without spoiling too much, I can confirm that in the second measurement with the new PS5, the difference between the APU temperature and the room air of slightly more than 8 degrees compared to the value of the colleagues from GN with the old PS5 also corresponds approximately to what we measured as the difference in this article today.
The RAM is even significantly cooler on the top side than in GN’s measurement, despite a significantly higher room temperature (ambient). We can also validate all previous measurements as a difference in this form up to this point, but will disclose the exact results transparently. So please be patient, because the bottom line will probably not change. Rather the opposite.
Not only the cooler is new, but also the PCB!article can be found here: LINK (top banner, change language)
UPDATE4 IGOR joins the battle (forum link)
So, first a few readings from the real top and bottom, which funnily enough confirm the other measurements. I'm still waiting for all the final runs, then there will be a clean follow up tomorrow or on Saturday.
Currently running a new PS5 in test (unclimatized room, 28 °C air) with 3 sensors for the APU alone. One directly on the IHS (right), one on the bracket (left) and one in the back (not in the picture), below the GPU on the MLCC, just like GN, to check its values. Aris also ran the PS5 for a full hour with a game before measuring. GN apparently didn't. But:
- Aris now had 70.58 °C at the new PS5 at the same place as GN at 28 degrees room temperature.
- GN had 72-73C at the old PS5 at 22 degrees room temperature.
- We come back to a difference of around 8 degrees as in today's review.
- In addition, test measurements on the two other sensors.
A total of 12 extra calibrated new sensors are running here at the same time, but I don't want to get too ahead of the follow up:
- RAM topside on new PS5 from Aris 78.13 °C at 28 degrees room temperature.
- RAM topside on old PS5 from GN 93 °C at 22 room temperature
As I said, the DIFFERENCES are the same and I would have been surprised if not. And yes, the 300 grams less are completely irrelevant for performance. Pipe porn
Aris will also gegentesten an old PS5 again, because if anything, everything with the same method.

Follow-up video soon, with 12 sensors inside PS5 new in all positions and under the backplate/heatsink, to have comparable results with Steve's measurements on the old PS5.
UPDATE (IGOR)UPDATE6 (igor)
So, I am through. Normalized all of Stephen's readings and subtracted the room temperature for delta. Then evaluated our values with the same game. Identical sensor position and comparable values. You will make eyes tomorrow. And by the way: the difference between both APUs is also almost the same as in the first test. Surely some should apologize for that.
I don't take Charlie seriously anymore for a long time, but he gets a mail with the request to apologize to Aris. It just doesn't work that way. We also had to slightly destroy the PS 5 for the cable grommets. Expenses that wouldn't have had to be if people had been more amenable to reasonable arguments. But what the heck... Collateral damage
We measure the new PS5 once again – Aris, Igor & The Magnificent 12 (Sensors) for truth and justiceBefore someone starts again a discussion about the qualification of us as testers and the sense or nonsense of the measurement: the first test with the not quite randomly selected measurement points is not refuted but fully confirmed by today’s measurement. With a total of 12 sensors, some of which we have deliberately placed in the same way as our colleague Stephen Burke from Gamers Nexus did in his review of the old PS5. So we can compare our new PS5 to his test of the old one, and we’ve also included a few additional sensors. So we now have the claimed values from within, but this does not contradict the measured difference between new and old PS 5 from yesterday’s article.
