Dang, that's really lousy.I don't know who else watched the whole GN video, but they basically used a cheap steel plate (not even aluminum) with minimal contact to the RAM chips, some of where are nowhere near the cooling plate. They should have added another heatpipe for the RAM, or made the one cooling the VRMs larger or something. Really just seems like a lazy and cheap design.
Between that and the software issues they have been having, the PS5 definitely has some kinks that Sony needs to iron out.
Ehh, I don't always agree with DukenukemX, but he does have a right to voice his opinion just as much as anyone else on here, and he isn't always wrong.Nice, a dedicated FUD console thread for DukenukemX to shit on consoles some more. Thanks, Erek.
Also, Erek does an exceptional job of finding fun and entertaining tech articles, and this one does present and interesting and legitimate issue with the PS5 that could lead to potential failures or increased wear and longevity deprivations.
Looks like the trusty Jaguar CPUs in my thin client and PS4 Pro are going to be in service for a little while longer.
