New PS4 Pro Has Silently Launched And Is Much Quieter

New PS4 Pro Has Silently Launched And Is Much Quieter

The new variant reportedly runs a bit hotter than the original model, but its fan remains a lot quieter. Digital Foundry have reviewed the new unit and have confirmed that it no longer sounds like a jet engine during intense gaming moments. That makes for a six-to-seven-decibel noise reduction from the launch model.

The only other difference with the new PS4 Pro model is the power plug port adopts the same figure of eight shape as the PS4 slim.

It also bodes well for the rumoured development of the PS5 - no-one likes a noisy console, and assuming it is going to be a more powerful machine, it looks as if Sony is continuing to find new ways to make its hardware avoid being obnoxiously loud.

With Sessions Out, Dems Fear for Future of Mueller Probe
There had already been hints that Robert Mueller's pre-election "quiet period" was about to come to an end. Previously he was a conservative legal commentator who was critical of the scope of Mueller's probe.

Sony's 2016 PlayStation 4 Pro and Microsoft's 2017 Xbox One X were released as half-generational updates to the PS4 and Xbox One/Xbox One S. According to Engadget, the CUH-7200 PS4 Pro is available in Red Dead Redemption 2′s bundle pack, though it's likely only a matter of time before a standalone version of the quieter console is released. PS4 Pro CUH-7200 is the company's latest hardware revision, and it's apparently the quietest model yet. "But PlayStation 5 is still years away, and in the here and now, the CUH-7200 series is the best version of the PlayStation 4 Pro hardware on the market".

There's a moment playing Infamous First Light, as the heroine made of light climbs up a wall in pitch black darkness, that I fully appreciate the hype around the PS4 Pro.
