Let’s now turn to the power consumption, which definitely has a few surprises in store. As long as the new PS5 is running in non-gaming modes, the power consumption is either close to the old PS, at homescreen and a bit more load it shows that the new version is even more efficient than the old one, consuming almost 8 percentage points less power!
In RTX gaming and in Full HD, the two PS5s are actually almost on par, with the difference being a negligible 0.8 percentage points or less at most. You can already move that into the tolerance range.
In Ultra HD, the new version requires between 1 and 4 percentage points more than the old version. However, there are reasons for this and without wanting to spoil anything: the APU is cooler and can also clock higher. From that perspective, the new PS5 might even be marginally faster than the old PS5, especially in UHD!
I have summarized the individual measurements as a PDF and you can also find the measured values of the bars in the individual measurement sheets. Let’s start with the old PS5.01 PS5 Old Version
