Gotta get a new processor! The new version of Sony PS5 is about to go on sale: no surprise for the price?

Not long ago, Sony announced a price increase for its PS5 console, which caused a lot of heated discussions. However, not long after the price hike, Sony made new moves. Recently, Japanese retail website GEO revealed that the new PS5 model CFI-1200 series will go on sale on September 15. This is also Sony's third PS5 model so far. In fact, this is not the first time that Sony has launched a new model of PS5. As early as the end of July last year, Sony launched a slightly improved new model CFI-1100 series. According to Xiaolei, compared with the first version, the CFI-1100 series replaced the new bottom screw and smaller heat sink, and the weight was also reduced by about 300 grams. It can be seen that this is just a simple design improvement, not a hardware upgrade.

However, the CFI-1200 series is likely to use AMD's new 6nm chipset. In addition, it is worth mentioning that the release time of the new PS5 model and the price increase time of the PS5 in Japan are on the same day. In general, Sony’s launch of the new PS5 version this time is actually to improve the production process, so as to improve the production efficiency of PS5 and reduce costs, that is, “cost reduction and efficiency increase”. In addition, the basic core hardware of the CFI-1200 series has not changed, so it is not much different from the previous generation CFI-1100 series. So, will the performance and longevity of the PS5 be affected after the new version of PS5 is improved? (Image source: Sony official website) Xiaolei thinks it will not, because compared with the first version, the CFI-1100 series launched before is basically the same in function and heat dissipation, so there is no need to worry about the performance and life of the new PS5. However, because the Sony PS5 just experienced a price increase not long ago, many consumers have given up their desire to buy the PS5. At present, even if new models are released, the sales of Sony PS5 cannot be increased without a major improvement. (Cover image source: Sony official website)
