What should we expect from the PS5 CFI-1200revision, according to DF Direct Weekly?

We have plenty of news and discussion to catch up with after going through a week with our usual DF Direct show in favor of The Last of Us and Intel Arc specials. Starting with the news that a brand new PlayStation 5 revision is en route to our shores now, which has already made its debut in Australia. Tech journalist Austin Evans has already imported a unit, dismantled it, and got to the bottom of what makes it different - and lighter - than the existing ones.

We''re looking to have the unit hands-on as soon as it comes to the UK, but what Evans has discovered is intriguing: a completely rebuilt, much smaller, mainboard along with another redesign of the heat sink as well as other internal modifications within the existing PlayStation 5 casing. Defined from a futureproofing perspective, the CMOS battery on the board now resides under the cooling assembly, so when this does inevitably run out of juice years down the road, replacing it will be a far from an easy task

The power consumption numbers are the most interesting. Evans discusses a reduced power draw than the previous ones he''s tested, but the nature of the observation is inconclusive, considering that his CFI-1100 power draw number was actually higher than his previous figure from the launch unit? Or is this just a result of modifications in the silicon, which may have been made on a per chip basis? Regardless, a power consumption figure in or around 200W is still in the broad ballpark.

This week, the official roll-out of the 1440p display support for PlayStation 5, which appears to be substantially similar to the beta firmware we have already tested. This is disappointing, given that features that should have been included, such as variable refresh rate support. Despite the fact that the HDMI 2.0 screen may display 60Hz content at full 4K and 120Hz games at 1440p, but the testing technique might be easily tweaked, as well. Ultimately, the 1440p display capability is more likely for Sony users, since it appears

Elsewhere in this Direct, we debate Sony''s ongoing struggle for its multi-platform future, while we also debate the ''exploit'' of Halo Infinite''s campaign co-op feature being dropped. Nevertheless, we were aware of the ''exploit'' to access this feature in the current code, although we hadn''t tested it. Now, we have - and it works, even with several issues. We''ll be showing how it will behave later this week.

We cover some of the most fantastic homebrew games to launch at the Sonic Amateur Games Expo (and remember, you can download them all for free), the potential in Metal Gear Solid remasters, and then, again, the Supporter Q+A segment where we discuss how Alex got along with his 48-inch LG OLED C1 purchase?
