Editorial: Gaming / Facebook / Twitter / YouTube / Instagram / News / Discord /Telegram / Google News Like many pieces of hardware in the age of computing and microprocessors, advances are made from time to time that improve manufacturing processes but also have a positive impact on systems. In the case of consoles, it is common for the different models to have internal changes during their life cycle, but currently this is an issue to be considered publicly and in the case of the PlayStation 5 there is interesting information.

The new PS5s have a more efficient SoC; improves cooling and consumes less power
Last August, the market launch of a new PS5 model known as the CFI-1202A series, in the case of the disc version, and CFI-1202B in terms of the digital one, was noted. Now that these consoles have a greater presence in the market, specialized sites and enthusiasts soon delved into the bowels of these models and, in addition to changes in terms of the parts that are inside, they discovered that a new SoC (system on chip for its acronym in English) is what brings the hardware to life resulting in improvements such as higher cooling capacity and lower power consumption.

According to reports from Wccftech, Zuby-Tech, Angstronomics and technology-specialized youtuber Austin Evans, the current CFI-1202 series PS5 models feature a 6nm AMD Obreon Plus SoC. The magic in this case was from Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), a leader in the semiconductor market, which managed to adapt its 7nm (N7) process to integrate those chips into 6nm (N6), which has resulted in lower power consumption. and a reduction in temperature.

On the other hand, this change is noticeable in the PS5 as they are lighter and have smaller heat sinks. Likewise, the investigations refer that the TSMC process has caused an increase in the number of chips that can be produced per wafer, this being 20%. In that sense, Sony is expected to exploit this improvement to increase the number of chips that give life to PS5 and thus fight against shortages in the run-up to the 2022 holiday season.
