According to the first hand, the PS5 is a much quieter console than the PS4 or the PS4 Pro. Testers say they have trouble hearing the noises generated by the machine’s fans. Which is not at all the case with the PS4.

In the years to come, Sony expects particularly resource-intensive PS5 video games are marketed. These titles offering high definition graphics risk pushing the components of the console in these entrenchments, thus increasing the internal temperature. To lower the temperature, Sony has integrated a cooling solution with a particularly conductive liquid metal in the PS5.

Firmware updates will keep the PS5 from overheating

To prevent the console from heating up and becoming noisy with the arrival of more demanding games, Sony will also adapt the fan speed in the years to come. Interviewed by our Japanese colleagues from 4Gamer, Yashuhiro Ootori, engineer at Sony, explains how the Japanese firm is doing adapt the operation of the fans according to the evolution of the games.

“Various games will be released in the future, and data on the behavior of the APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) in each game will be collected. We have a plan to optimize fan control based on this data ” Yashuhiro Ootori details during the interview. “The PS5 has three temperature sensors on the main board to control the fan speed based on the internal temperature of the APU and the highest temperature of the three temperature sensors. These fan control parameters will also be updated via online updates ” explains the engineer.

Concretely, Sony will roll out software updates that will adapt the speed of the fans from the console to the energy consumption of games. The more a game is likely to heat the components, the more the fans will be used. Sony will thus prevent overheating and unwanted blowing noises. What do you think of Sony’s idea? We await your opinion in the comments.
