Sony’s upgraded PS5 controller comes with 6nm AMD Oberon Plus SOC, provides lower temperature and consumes less power

Sony recently made a nice update to its PS5 console with a new version known as the CFI-1202 which offers lower temperatures and performance. The new console is lighter, operates in lower temperatures, and consumes less power, all thanks to the AMD Obreon Plus SOC upgrade, which pays homage to TSMC’s 6nm process node.

Sony “CFI-1202” PS5 console version features 6nm AMD Oberon Plus SOC technology: smaller size, less power and coolant operation

in recently broke up He posted the video Austin Evans, Techtuber noted that the Sony PS5 controller is available in a new lighter, cooler and less power hungry version. This new PS5 variant is called “CFI-1202” and now we can find out why it is better than Sony’s original PS5 variants (CFI-1000 / CFI-1001).

technological outlet, AngstronomyIt exclusively confirmed that the Sony PS5 (CFI-1202) will feature an improved AMD Oberon SOC, known as the Oberon Plus, and will use TSMC’s N6 (6nm) process. TSMC decided that their 7nm process node (N7) is a design rule compatible with the 6nm EUV (N6) node. This allows TSMC partners to easily migrate existing 7nm chips to the 6nm node without major complications. The N6 processing node increases the transistor density by 18.8% and reduces power consumption, which in turn reduces the temperature.

This is why the new Sony PS5 consoles are lighter and have a smaller heatsink than the various game variants. But that’s not all, we can also see a screenshot of a brand new AMD Oberon Plus SOC chip alongside the 7nm Oberon SOC. The new tool size is approximately 260 mm 2, 15% smaller than the 7 nm SOC operon (~ 300 mm 2). Another advantage of switching to 6nm is the number of chips that can be produced on a single chip. The store reported that each SOC Oberon Plus chip can produce about 20% more chips at the same cost.

This means that Sony can offer more Oberon Plus chips for use on the PS5 without impacting the cost and this could narrow the market gap that current consoles have faced since their launch. It is also rumored that TSMC will phase out 7nm Oberon SOCs in the future and switch completely to 6nm Oberon Plus SOCs, resulting in 50% more chips per chip. Microsoft is expected to use a 6nm process node for its updated Arden SOC for Xbox Series X consoles in the future.
