    It’s always good to see lower power consumption since it should generate less heat and thereby make the console more durable.

    I really noticed a big difference swapping. out the default hdd for a solid state hard drive. It’s a shame they cost a fortune for anything over 200gb though.

    I wasn’t aware that Niko made gaming accessories.
    Typo, maybe?

    I thought Garyopa was a gateway shill/nintendo 3ds troll on gba temp forums. Regardless, cool news, made me a bit mad I bought ps4 recently but the changes are nothing major yet.

    Won’t lower power consumption make the ps4 less powerful when playing games?

      No you just save some money with less power consumption = lower electricity bill
      Also less heat

    I think the slim will be announced around the time 16nm APU’s from AMD will be coming out. They will also stack their VRAM. AMD is calling is High Bandwidth Memory. This will significantly reduce the footprint of the VRAM. I’m predicting the power draw will be around 30% less. The PS4 slim might end up looking like the PS2 slim.
