Sony releases quieter version of the PlayStation 4 Pro

PlayStation 4 Pro

A new version of Sony's Playstation 4 Pro has been rolled out and it includes one very important improvement: it's a lot quieter. Other than the power connector alterations with the figure-8 connector seen in the PlayStation 4 Slim and the Xbox One S, and the changes made to how the system runs audio-wise, the differences really do end there.

PS4 Pro CUH-7200 comes under the guise of the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro.

"This is quietest, most discreet Pro yet, completely banishing the "jet engine" effect commonly associated with launch models", The Digital Foundry's Richard Leadbetter explains. At this point in time, the tweaked console is exclusive to the Red Dead Redemption 2 bundle, and its existence has only been confirmed here in the UK. According to tests conducted by Digital Foundry, this new version brings noise levels down from 50dB/55dB to 44dB/48dB, with the trade off being slightly higher temperatures.

Divisive Trump era ushers record number of women into House
In the Senate , Republicans are cautiously optimistic they will hold onto - or even add seats to - their slim 51-49 majority. His controversial decision to appoint judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court was also met with huge criticism.

It also bodes well for the rumoured development of the PS5 - no-one likes a noisy console, and assuming it is going to be a more powerful machine, it looks as if Sony is continuing to find new ways to make its hardware avoid being obnoxiously loud.

Other changes to the console include a different power cable, suggesting a new power supply, and a minor increase in peak power draw compared to the previous model. Last year's updated PS4 Pros have CUH-7100 printed on their packaging.
