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

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.

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. That makes for a six-to-seven-decibel noise reduction from the launch model. If previous reports of noise issues have put you off of buying a PS4 Pro and enjoying 4K gaming, you can put those concerns to rest as Digital Foundry report little more than a constant hum during normal gameplay.

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.

For those that were looking to scoop up the new Red Dead Redemption 2 Pro bundle, the upgraded system is confirmed to be the model included with the latest deal.

This new PS4 Pro, in an analysis by Digital Foundry, is far quieter than the CUH-7000 and CUH-7100 models. 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.

Other than this change, the CUH-7200 version of the PS4 Pro is reportedly identical to the first version of the console.
