Sony PlayStation 4 Pro Gets a Quieter Model With a Silent Launch

Sony's Stealth Released a New PS4 Pro Model, and It's Quieter

The latest tweak to the PlayStation 4 Pro makes the powerhouse console nearly as quiet as Sony was about sneaking the new model into stores. But there's a catch: You can only obtain it as part of a single console bundle right now.

Consumers can identify the new version by looking at the front of the packaging for the CUH-7200 model number before buying. "The new design improves once again on the machine's perennial noise problem". The launch PS4 Pro would top out at 60 degrees Celsius, meanwhile the CUH-7200 revision tops out at 66 degrees Celsius.

KitGuru Says: I've always been impressed by what Sony's first-party team can squeeze out of the PS4 Pro but my launch unit is incredibly loud at times.

The PlayStation 4 Pro, in its original form, was notorious for being extremely noisy under load, with titles like God of War causing the machine to whine at very notable volume levels.

Have Bayern waved goodbye to Bundesliga title with Dortmund defeat?
This is also just the second time that Dortmund have reached the 11-game mark unbeaten, and the first since 2002-03. Robert Lewandowski broke the deadlock against his former club after heading home from the edge of the six-yard box.

Last year, it released a version with a different RAM cooling system that seemed to help a bit with the fan noise.

As far as other changes go, that's about it, which would explain why Sony didn't make a big "to-do" about the most recent change. That's despite actually running hotter than the two previous versions of the PS4 Pro console that have been released into the wild.

The only other difference with the new PS4 Pro model is the power plug port adopts the same figure of eight shape as the PS4 slim. I assume it will become more broadly available as the current stock sells out.
