The idea itself looks really good; SONY actually does not know how its console will react to subsequent games released in the months following the launch of the console, so the idea is to collect data on game usage (usage time, adjustment, FPS, etc.) and sensor-measured temperatures for the purpose of converting it, using updates. firmware, behavior based on results
The PS5 will improve its temperature as it receives updates
Here’s the good news: based on the data collected by SONY for PS5 users, you’ll be able to check the effects of the console temperature according to the game, adjustments, graphics and FPS
So, in addition to the titanic size, the PS5 heatsink will have it software control SONY says it will be updated over time based on data collected from individual games on user consoles, according to Yashuhiro Ootori, PS5 Chief Architect.
“A lot of games will be released in the future now that we don’t have data, so APU ethics data will be collected so that we can optimize fan performance based on it.”
This means that the software will collect heat and usage data and send it to SONY to produce new and better profiles, which will no doubt end up being user-friendly as it will keep the console as cool and quiet as possible. But there is concern about what data and how SONY
What data will SONY collect on PS5?
As we have said, in theory it is a good idea because the data will only be collected – at least in theory – the behavior of the APU: which game works, at what resolution, for how long, what are the graphics settings, what the FPS already produces and what temperature the APU controller, RAM and SSD.
The PS5’s major developer also revealed that his team first tested the PS5 thermal performance using a transparent casing, so they could (actually) touch the air to see where it was going and which cooler parts were the best and worst. and check the effect of temperatures on the internal components.
We will all agree that all of this is great, but it still worries that SONY collects data from users’ consoles without their consent; it is quite possible that in the User Agreement (which is accepted by everyone without reading) this is done, but SonY must make an agreement or issue a warning to be read and accepted stating exactly what data was collected, how and why it was used. And if they collect this data without the user’s knowledge, what other data can they collect for other purposes?
