PlayStation 4 Pro is known not only for its power, but also for its very high windmill, which disturbs the gameplay of many players.
Digital Foundry decided to try the latest PS4 Pro model, which without any announcement started to appear on the store shelves. Although it looks the same from the outside (except the new socket), and inside, almost nothing changes, the CUH-7200 has a very important change. It turns out that he not only went silently on the shelves of the store, but he walked calmly.
This change will be understood by anyone who is equipped with PS4 Pro, sometimes fears that the console will begin to float in the air and fly to the sun west or explode, its windmill can work so high. Life is more frequent compared to reaction engines. And although it is known that the equipment is not SO, it exceeds the acceptable standards. Some resumes playing in the headphones. Others can not play at night, because they are afraid that they will wake up at home.
This is a phenomenon that is repeated quite frequently to be a problem, but not so many times that Sony officially refers to it. Oh, it's tall. It's hard The latest model – CUH-7100 – corrected this problem and the current CUH-7200 seems to completely eliminate the problem.
At least future users may enjoy a quieter console.
The Foundry Digital test compared different models of PlayStation 4 Pro with the example of the introduction of God of War this year. Many players have claimed that it was then that fanatics of the console became the most unbearable. The results were surprising: it turns out that the latest CUH-7200 model significantly improved sound problems. The team, even after many hours, did not ring the usual noise. The howling associated with the jet engines disappeared without traces. The author even gets to call the new PS4 Pro of a "discreet" console, although it is probably not as good as the Xbox One X.
And if someone in turn is a fan of numbers, the proof of God of Wara showed that the biggest noise of the PS4 Pro debut models varied between 50 and 55 decibels. In the case of CUH-7200 it is already 44-48 decibels. The only notable drawback is the fact that the last model warms up a bit more than the older ones. However, the advice is the same: do not keep the console in small spaces.
The CUH-7200 model was noticed only in the set with Red Dead Redemption 2. As an autonomous console, it will probably appear when the CUH-7100 disappears from store shelves. However, if someone is planning to buy a PS4 Pro now, it is worth looking forward to the package before buying. In the set with RDR the console has the code CUH-7216B.
