[EuroGamer]Hardware Test: PlayStation 4

A lot of interesting information, but what stood out for me was the 80W idle power consumption. Seems pretty high for a console.



Edit: I see there is a [Various]PS4 review topic in Video Games section already, Mods please close this topic as a double post.

80W is ESPECIALLY high considering the nature of the hardware used in the PS4. Ideally that can be fixed over a patch....right?

131 watts while gaming is nice though smile.gif

51dbA could be quieter though

80w idle does seem a little high to me as well.

I'll assume some element of the UI was running (always on) and maybe some background downloading as the playstation four has some whack background downloading chip manager (last I heard which is a few months ago)..

He's wrong. I think it's because the PS4 is black and most PC DVD drives are also black. That's what makes them on par with each other.

Lmao. With each console generation people's expectations get higher and higher, and when most of them are not met, they get disappointed.

I think it's because both new gen and PC's use electricity to function.
