CFI-1200 PS5 Completely Redone - Tear Down

Tech YouTuber Austin Evans gained another CFI-1200 model of the PlayStation 5, which discreetly went on special in Australia toward the finish of August.

Last year Evans did likewise with the then-new CFI-1100 model and ignited discussion in the wake of guaranteeing that its more modest heatsink could make it a "more regrettable" console (a hypothesis later excused by Computerized Foundry which reasoned that it was no greater or more awful than the send off model).

This time, in any case, Evans is of the assessment that the CFI-1200 is a superior framework, because of various changes made to the control center's inside parts.

Evans takes note of that the new model has a "entirely unexpected" motherboard which is recognizably more modest than that of the past models.

The new model's heatsink is considerably more modest than that of the CFI-1100 model, yet it contains an intensity pipe that goes through to the opposite side of the framework, while Evans likewise noticed that the SSD nook presently has a "superior" safeguard.

Consolidated, the new motherboard and heatsink lead to a weight decrease of significantly more than the 0.2kg revealed, however the control center's dark plastic form has additional help added to it, bringing the load up marginally.

Evans likewise guarantees that the new model has more proficient power utilization, taking note of that during a test in which each of the three test consoles were playing Astro's Den, a send off model PS5 was drawing around 218 watts of power, last year's CFI-1100 model was pulling around 229 watts and the new CFI-1200 was just pulling around 201 watts.

However, the breakdown isn't totally certain. Evans likewise brings up that "they have moved around essentially every part, including the CMOS battery which is currently totally concealed by the heatsink.

He makes sense of: "Before you could decently effectively supplant it in the event that you expected to, yet presently you really want to totally dismantle your PS5, which is positively a drawback."

The new CFI-1200 series models of the PS5, presently on special in Australia, weigh not exactly the send off consoles, to the degree that the standard version with the circle drive is currently however light as the advanced release might have been at send off.

This is the second time the PS5 equipment has been changed to make it lighter. In July 2021 Sony carried out its CFI-1100 series, which likewise weighed not exactly the send off forms.

Each model’s weight is as follows:


  • CFI-1000A (launch) – 4.5kg
  • CFI-1100A (2021) – 4.2kg
  • CFI-1200A (2022) – 3.9kg


  • CFI-1000B (launch) – 3.9kg
  • CFI-1100B (2021) – 3.6kg
  • CFI-1200B (2022) – 3.4kg

This means the new 2022 model of the PS5 standard edition now weighs the same as the Digital Edition did at launch.
