    Saw this posted elsewhere today. Someone used the size of the USB port to show the size of the console. It's pretty hefty - which tells me that they had to do this to offset thermal issues. On the bright side, it should be quiet - albeit big:

    Holding out for the all black version. I personally think the white is a little over the top

    Microsoft could have taken a note out of the broader PC market and build something like the Sentry 2.0 form factor, but the cube's mini ITX layout will be more thermally efficient. I think Microsoft is just finally trying to get RROD/thermal failures behind them once and for all. The vast...

    What's unusual here is that lowering voltage dynamically is very typical behavior for any processor. If you look at the V-Core on any CPU or GPU, it goes down as the frequency does ultimately saving power and lowering thermal load. I think that the Sony team is creatively trying to explain away...

    I managed to get my response mixed up, you're right. The other portion of my response however holds true, doing something like this is very atypical in the world of computing, as normally to engage boosted clocks you would be able to spike power slightly. The fact that they don't/ won't do that...

    I really enjoyed the presentation by Mark Cerny, thanks @Sam Posten for sharing. I have heard rumors that they are struggling with the thermal load of the PS5 in its current form factor, though Cerny apparently refuted that. I think the fact they've gone constant frequency instead of constant...
