    TL;DW:
    • SoC (CPU/GPU) temperatures are probably in the 75-80 degree range, most likely fine.
    • Memory runs very hot, at 95 degrees!
    • Voltage regulators run at an ok but not great temperature, around 70 degrees.
    • Panels on are hotter than panels off, by as much as 5 degrees in some cases
    • Console takes a while to cool after shutdown, faster if the panels are off.
    • Huge, high-powered fan that could move a lot of air provided a proper fan curve.
    • Memory heat dissipation design is poor, relying on the steel board cover to remove heat.
    • Consumed roughly 210W during gaming, idle draw is 100w.
    • Noise levels are relatively quiet compared to standard PC components.
    • Fan has a gradual ramp down after closing a game and returning to the menu.
    • Fan is very powerful, but doesn't run fast. Thermals seem to have been sacrificed for noise.

    AMD hardware is typically designed for higher temperatures than Nvidia hardware, so it is normal.

    So my xbox series x arrived this week, installed a bunch of gamepass stuff... my wife is the one giving it the most use tho, Tetris effect. Quite a beautiful looking and sounding game, not expecting.

    Was wondering to myself today while thinking about getting 13 Sentinels how long the PS4 (and I guess Xbox One) will run into this new generation. It's basically an inevitability that the PS4 will go a few years into the PS5, after all you still had some stuff like MGSV coming out for the 360 and PS3 towards the end of 2015 despite the new stuff having come out at the end of 2013 in November. But the PS4 has sold a lot more than the 360 and PS4, it's one of the best selling consoles there is...and the PS5 can still play PS4 games, so you still have a PS4 user install base with the PS5. Makes me wonder if it won't last something like twice as long. I mean, there's probably a lot of smaller Japanese developers like Atlus (they released Persona 5 on the PS3 in Japan in 2016) and such that'd be perfectly happy staying with the thing that's cheaper to make games for; and since the Switch is pretty big there's still going to be a number of third party developers makes stuff for that less powerful hardware too.

    I'm thinking the tail to the PS4 will be longer than we've ever seen it before. Especially since it sounds like Japan isn't exactly jumping to get these new systems, and may not be for a while.

    Thanks, was an issue to find a place to put the xbox. Lying down it doesn't fit beneath the tv, and standing up I could only put it on the floor level to the subhoofer. Both the series x and the ps5 have a very difficult format to fit with entertainment system.

    Yeah Tetris Effect is great. I think it got less attention than it should have on PC because of the Epic Store shit, but I enjoyed it a lot. Even better with visuals and sound that Lumines, and with (IMO) better gameplay.

    Man the days of buying a console, boot it up, place the disc and play away ended in the PS3/360 era

    Now when you boot it for the 1st time you have to leave the damn thing on throughout the night so it can configure itself. Then you have to download and install the software updates, that's another 3 hours at least. Then when you insert the disc you can't play it right away, as you have to install the game so that's another hour, hour and half. And of course after that you have to download the 30Gb 1st day update to fix most of the game, so another hour down the drain.
    So you're looking at a whole fucking day of maintence before the brats can enjoy it.

    Nowadays you're better with PC's in it comes to expidience and comfort. Just install the game and you're good to go.

    I haven't really used a console in forever, but I feel like there's still a large "fuss with it" gap. I just bought my first NVME drive in a black Friday sale and now I have to google how to install it, I have to take parts out of my machine to access the slot and then reinstall those, I have to google how to clone my SATA drive to the NVME drive or do a fresh Windows install on it, which would require reinstalling a bunch of random programs like RivaTuner and whatnot, not to mention drivers. Unless consoles have changed a LOT since I last used them then I still think there's a large difference.

    Same with the consoles. I had to watch a bunch of tutorials when I was swapping PS4 HDD for an SSD and had to copy OS and all of my files. Then had to rebuild the database because some games weren't working.

    Dude you've bought a competent to install in a desktop, of course that's more complicated than buying a console

    But most dudes that use PC as gaming platform, simply buy the components and then pay for the store guys to assemble it and install and configure the OS
    Then all they have to do is pick the thing up at the shop (or pay for it's delivery), boot up, install steam, install a game and boom
    2 hours after unboxing and they're already playing fucking CSGO or LOL while chatting up in Discord

    While with the XBox and PS you have to configure so much that 1st time that it ain't even funny (well not funny for the console peasants that have to sit through all of that, I certaintly found it hilarious when a mate told that, the day after trying to rub it in my face that he was going to play Bloodborne back in 2015)

    If you have a 144hz g-sync monitor then RivaTuner is pretty essential to cap your framerate without v-sync. It does it better with less delay than the GPU drivers do.

    You might want to check up on those glasses. The thumbnail alone shows a huge difference.

    like what? The only thing I ever had to fiddle with were the settings regarding the TV. You're right with the gamepatches of course.

    If you can't even swap a fucking drive on a PC without looking at a guide then you have no business using a PC. Fuck off.

    Setting up the xbox was ridiculously simple. Boot it up, it asks to connect to your phone app, while it downloads the system update you continue to configure the console settings through your phone.

    I waited more time just browsing gamepass and choosing stuff to download, so much awesome stuff there that when I spent a full day just downloading games.

    Couple of things about the console itself. Its very hefty and solid, feels like a product with top build quality. Also it's super quiet, fast to boot and load everything, UI is also very snappy, a marked improvement from what I was used to on the ps4.

    Never used an NVME and know literally nothing about using them, so yeah I'm gonna Google real quick. You'd have to be absolutely retarded not to. I guess you're the guy who drove in circles for hours instead of asking for directions, back in the day.

    How else are you supposed to get anywhere?

    Anyway, read the fucking motherboard manual at least.

    I'm enjoying the PS5 so far - UI is a lot snappier than the PS4 Pro (especially the PS Store) and the load times are really good in comparison. The controller is ok but has some odd angles at the base of my palms that I notice occasionally (I would have preferred it be more rounded).

    Biggest improvement by far is the end of the jet engine fan noise though.
