The German manufacturer of cooling systems GRAUGEAR has presented an unusual cooling system for M.2 NVMe SSDs that are built into PlayStation 5 game consoles with a device called the G-PS5HS01-Cov.
The novelty consists of two radiators connected by a flat heat-conducting copper tube with a diameter of 7 mm. The larger heatsink, along with thermal pads, mounts directly to the SSD installed in the corresponding M.2 slot in the set-top box. In this case, there is a smaller radiator next to the ventilation openings of the cooling system of the set-top box itself. Thus, the smaller cooler of the G-PS5HS01-Cov cooling system receives airflow and dissipates heat.
The manufacturer states that its solution is 50% more efficient than traditional compact heatsinks for M.2 drives and can reduce the operating temperature of the SSD storage controller by 15-20°C.
The weight of the G-PS5HS01-Cov cooling system is 70 grams. The manufacturer did not specify the cost of the novelty or the date when it went on sale.
