PlayStation 3 Slim Teardown - PS3 Slim Motherboard First Look!

Sponsored Links
278w ago - We have waited a while to see the redesigned Slim PS3, and its hardware - to be honest, its not that "slim" compared to previous versions. Thanks to joinmeindeath417 of TechPowerUp (linked above), we get to take a look!

Compared to the later motherboard revisions of the PS3 Motherboard, it is somewhat in line - the "additions" come with a smaller cooler, smaller PSU, and slimmer BD-Rom drive, as well as a slightly redesigned motherboard (not too much however).

But, compared to the CECHA it's a big difference, but compared to the later model motherboards (CECHL and on), it is mostly the same.

The only differences are more integrated components, less power supply "bits" spread about the board, but nevertheless - mostly the same.

Cheaper, things are smaller, PSU is not switching anymore, 45NM cell, runs cooler - there are more things, but those are the big few!

Just hope it is not too complicated in the BD drive. By seeing the motherboad i still Questioning the over head problem will be solve even they design it in to less power usage.

The power supply it self was similar with PSX power. If it is not an auto-volt type then we gonna see a lot of blow up power
