Sony Released a Quieter Version of the PS4 Pro Without Telling Anyone

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.

This new model runs a few decibels quieter than a previously updated version Sony released in 2017, which itself ran a few decibels quieter than the original 2016 model.

Digital Foundry's put the new machine to the test, and the results are promising. In the United Kingdom, at least, Digital Foundry believes CUH-7200s are only being distributed as part of the Red Dead Redemption 2 bundle pack for the time being, but a full rollout is nearly certain to follow soon. It uses a new and more efficient power supply and provides even better noise reduction.

In brief: With exclusive titles such as God of War, the PlayStation 4 continues to outsell the Xbox One.

Do you have one of these new models, by chance?

Expect to find the new PS4 Pro making its way into stores in the coming weeks or months into Christmas outside of that Red Dead offer - just look out for the CUH-7200 number on the box. According to Eurogamer, the new CUH-7200 version of the PS4 Pro has reduced the video game console's noise output to 44 decibels from the 50 decibels featured in the launch version of the mid-generation console.

There's a moment playing Infamous First Light, as the heroine made of light climbs up a wall in pitch black darkness, that I fully appreciate the hype around the PS4 Pro.
