The console wars are heating up to record temperatures with the release of both PS4 and Xbox One – quite literally, as comparisons of the amount of heat both consoles generate reveals a clear victory for the PS4.

As a follow-up to the previous thermographic photography of the PS4, the two consoles have been compared in moderately scientific fashion:

  • So at first Sankaku was making news about how PS4 beats Xbox One in every aspect and now it’s bashing it? WTF

    Both consoles have their own problems, PS4 has bent HDMI ports and Xbox One has faulty blu-ray drives. Also, PS4 is one third smaller, more powerful and has PSU inside so of course the case gets a bit hotter. Would be strange if it didn’t. However, that is just the case, not the actual temperature. According to some tests PS4 pushes out cooler air than Xbox One. Xbox One has just lots of empty room inside which evens out the temp around the case.

  • 140ºF = 60ºC, which isn’t that bad at all. Why are we crying about this again? I would understand if this goes over 100ºC, now that would be REALLY bad.
    Seriously, what’s the point of this article?

  • What I see is that ps4 tops out at 143 degrees, that’s not a problem at all that’s still running very cool with what it has inside of it. My gaming computer runs around 180 degrees and about 150 on idle.

  • I don’t see what the big deal is about the temperature. My video card runs at about the same temperature on my computer when running graphic intensive games. If it’s within the tolerances of the chip, quit bitching and enjoy your glorious HD gameplay.

  • The highest recorded in these pictures is 140F, which is equal to 60C, a temperature that is perfectly acceptable in regular off-the-shelf CPUs and GPUs.

    Most CPUs and GPUs have a general max of 80C before any extra degradation or noticeable performance loss occurs, so 60C isn’t a problem for the PS4’s APU.(it probably gets 5-10 degrees C hotter on the surface of the APU’s heat-sink, but it’s fine as long as it stays below 80C.

    For comparison, most high-end reference-model GPUs these days hit 80C right out of the box when they’re on a full load, and some even go up to 95C.(I’m looking at you, 290x) My aftermarket GTX 780(with a custom cooler from Asus) hits 70C max while on a full load and overclocked.

      • These results show a max of 140f, or 60C, the inside temp would need to be at least 20C higher than that hottest reading in the pictures to start going into dangerous territory. 20C translates to 68 degrees Fahrenheit, and i doubt the inside is 68F hotter than what you see in any of these pictures.

        The hottest point will be the surface of the APU’s heatsink like i said, and even that shouldn’t be 20C hotter.

    • Absolutely seconding this! I don’t know what this artificial rage is about. Okay the fact that one might be hotter than the other can’t be denied. But the first article was totally meaningless with temperatures of around 60°C. These temperatures are absolutely normal and good for high specs like that. Of course it would be nice to have them operate energy efficiently at around 35°C-45°C but thats kinda unrealistic with these specs.

      tl:dr seconding nothing’s wrong with these temperatures.

  • As far as I know all consoles more than 2 generations back (ps2 era) were all working perfectly fine on release. Most are still in good working order today even something like the xbox1. I understand we all want lower prices and the market changed but this is becoming annoying. First it used to be excellent hardware with poor margins that would sell enough for an eventual break-even with profit from games (if I’m not mistaken). Now it’s leaning a lot more to the cheap hardware to achieve a quicker break-even. Maybe they don’t trust their sales rates. Can these companies really not strike a decent price/quality balance anymore?

    • Actually, consoles were never as good. The PS2 had time to work out its issues in Japan before it was released world wide and the Original Xbox was know for getting so hot due to poor ventilation that in burned holes what ever it was underneath it. Even the Super Nintendo had it issues with defective ram, faulty visual ports, and even defective power problems that prevented it from starting.Hell, even the cartridges internal battery could die out deleting all saves.
      These problem come in to folds: Most of these are because mass quantity production always has a small percentage were their are defective units, such as the case with this generation.
      The other half is that we are always building new technology. Since the start of making consoles these companies are pushing hardware so games can be both affordable and playable.

  • This seems like an obvious conclusion to me. The Xbox is near as makes no difference 200 cubic inches bigger, and has slightly less powerful hardware. Now I have mine in a well ventalated space and notice less heat than either of my ps3 consoles put out, and don’t get me started on the heat my computer puts out. I don’t understand why this has to be such a conflict. I have a PlayStation because it’s what I wanted, and it works just fine, if you wanted an Xbox and that’s fine. Why do so many have to look for some detail, no matter how irrelevant to make what they have superior.

    • A rev 1.0 of any complex product usually is going to be bug ridden junk esp if it’s been rushed and had last minute design changes.

      I believe the first PS4 was to use an enhanced Cell but IBM shifted focus to the more general purpose Power 7 processor.
      So this is their plan B or even plan C design.

      • Ha! When IBM dropped Cell from their Bladeservers it was all over. They never produced a Cell faster than 2.8GHz, while the Cell processor contained within PS3 was clocked at 3.2GHz. Intel Core2 based Xenon processors kicked it’s teeth in.

        • Incorrect the Cell is far faster the Core2 Xenon.
          The version Cell version of the software OpenGl renderer in Mesa was on average four time faster then the version compiled for a quad core Skull trail Xenon.
          Even the Jaguar which pisses on the Core2 is 50% slower at SIMD then Cell but the programmable stream processors in the GPU more then offset this.
          Now Jaguar’s X86 units are collectively about 3 to 5 times faster then the PPE in Cell.
          This should help lazy ass game ports run better if they at least put forth the effort to make them multi threaded.
