Sony sneaks out a quieter PS4 Pro

The PS4 Pro is powerful, no doubt about it, and with that power comes noise — the commonly-cited “jet engine” effect. The latest revision — the CUH-7200 version — was measured to have reduced the console’s noise output from a minimum 50 decibels for the launch model (CUH-7000) to just 44 decibels. It’ll peak at 48 decibels at its loudest, but that’s still comparatively a whisper compared to the roar of older models at their max. However, it does seem that Sony has achieved this by doing away with thermal reduction, so expect the newer version to run hotter than its predecessors.

Of course, the CUH-7200 looks pretty much exactly the same as the others, so you’ll need to check the label to clarify which is which. Or, have a look on the back of the model — this one now uses the same “figure 8” power plug as the PS4 Slim and Microsoft’s Xbox One. Right now, it seems it’s only available as part of the Red Dead Redemption 2 bundle pack, but it’ll no doubt make its way onto shelves as a standalone once stores have run out of the previous, noisier models.
