Lighter more efficient cooling system for the PS3
Posted: May 2, 2008 06:08PM
Sony's newest gaming console, the Playstation 3, is getting lighter. I would imagine that since its inception that it has dropped quite a few pounds. This time around the weight loss is attributed to its new updated cooling system. Sony has decided that instead of using one massive overweight heatsink for the CPU and graphics chip that it will use two considerably lighter heatsinks that are just as capable if not better at cooling the Playstation 3's internal chips. Most of the weight loss is attributed to the fact that neither heatsink will use the heatpipes that the larger heatsink used. No words yet if these will cause a price decrease.
