After the PS4 and its ridiculously loud fan, the hope was that Sony would invest in a better and more efficient cooling solution for the PS5. Based on recent report and impressions, it seems that that’s exactly what they’ve done, with what has been reported as an unusually expensive cooling solution being described by media as quiet and efficient.

And it seems Sony plans on continuing to optimize the console on that front even after launch. Speaking in an interview with 4Gamer (via ResetEra), Yasuhiro Otori, the head of PS5’s mechanical and thermal design team, said that Sony will continue to collect data on the PS5’s fan’s performance, and will make adjustments to it based on that data with future firmware updates.

“Various games will be released in the future, and data on the APU’s (Accelerated Processing Unit) behaviour in each game will be collected,,” he said. “We have a plan to optimise the fan control based on this data.” Further context from 4Gamer.net adds: “PS5 has three temperature sensors on the main board to control the fan speed based on the internal temperature of the APU and the highest temperature of the three temperature sensors. These fan control parameters will also be updated via online updates.”

Recently, it was revealed that the console’s large cooling fan is one of the primary reasons for its massive size. Read more on that through here.
