{Disarmed} The mystery of the "light PS5" revealed: the heatsink is smaller and that explains how it has "thinned" 300 grams

The mystery of the

The PS5 has lost weight. We counted it a few weeks ago, when the first models of those "light PS5" made their appearance with one clear difference: they weighed 300 grams less, but nobody knew why .

Now the first units have begun to reach some analysts, and the first analyzes of their interior have revealed the mystery of that weight loss. The PS5's heatsink is now smaller , and some say that causes an average rise of 5 ° C during operation.

Smaller, but also more efficient?

The youtuber Austin Evans published his analysis of both models: he got a model of that light PS5 that for now is only on sale in Japan and Australia and he opened both consoles to compare component by component what the differences were.

Almost immediately you noticed how the new heatsink is smaller , and as seen in the picture it takes up less space and has a slightly different design. The fan has also undergone small changes, but it is that heatsink that is clearly responsible for the thinning.

This is how the Xbox and PlayStation have dropped in price throughout history: with PS5 and Series X we will have to arm ourselves with patience In xiaomist.com This is how the Xbox and PlayStation have dropped in price throughout history: with PS5 and Series X we will have to arm ourselves with patience

In that analysis, Evans explained how in his preliminary tests when testing the game 'Astro's Playroom' on both consoles , an average increase of 5 ° C was detected according to the thermal camera used compared to the original PS5, although a more in-depth study will be necessary to draw clearer conclusions.

Sony may have developed this version to cut costs - they've already managed not to lose money on every PS5 they sell - but it's hard to believe they weren't very careful when redesigning something as crucial as the heatsink. It will therefore be interesting to monitor these models to see if they actually end up posing problems for users.

In xiaomist.com we have contacted Sony to learn more details about this new version and we will update this issue if we receive clarification about these changes and their possible impact on the operation of the PS5.
