Teardown video reveals design changes to new PlayStation 5 model

Fans have speculated on the changes made by Sony as the new PlayStation 5 unit is lighter and slimmer than the original.

Now, we have an idea of what has changed in the new PS5.

Someone did a teardown video to show us what has changed from the previous models of the PS5.

The resulting weight savings is equivalent to 500Grams or 1.1lbs from the original CFI-1000 series.

Sony designed the CFI-1200 to have a smaller motherboard with a larger heatpipe that will result in better thermal performance.

FInally, the CFI-1200 isn't just a lighter model but it also has a lower energy consumption by as much as 10%.
