Usually it's games that get post-launch updates to optimize their performance, but when the PlayStation 5 launches next month, Sony is intending to do the same thing for the internal fan that keeps the console cool.

As Eurogamer reports, Yasuhiro Ootori, VP of mechanical design at Sony Interactive Entertainment (and the man who recently performed a tear down of the console), was interviewed by Japanese gaming website 4Gamer.net (translated by ResetEra). During the interview he explained how the custom internal fan on the PS5 will be optimized over time based on the games being launched.

"Various games will be released in the future, and data on the APU's behavior in each game will be collected," Otori said. "We have a plan to optimize the fan control based on this data."

The PS5 has a temperature sensor inside its Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) and three located on the main board. It's these sensors that control how fast the fan spins, but Sony will also collect sensor data on a per game basis based on how the APU performs and the temperatures reached. It can then release fan control updates, just like system software updates, based on what it learns from the data.

Over time, this should allow the PS5 to not only perform better thermally, but hopefully reduce the fan noise even further on a console that's already expected to be whisper quiet. As well as being 120mm wide, the internal cooling fan is 45mm deep so as to allow a lot of air movement while rotating slowly, meaning less noise is produced. It's manufactured from glass fiber polybutylene terephthalate, which Sony chose because it's strong and doesn't deform easily when exposed to heat for long periods of time.

There's also some good news for anyone planning to use the additional M.2 SSD slot available in the PS5. Otori confirmed that two exhaust holes exist for the expansion area, which allows the console's internal fan to cool an inserted SSD by sucking out the hot air and therefore no additional cooling components are required. Now we just need some PS5-certified SSDs to launch.
