Hardware/Performance differences between ps3's

3 replies 408 views Edited Jun 13, 2013

Howdy Ya'll,

 

I've got a question concerning the various ps3 models, specifically between the ps3 fat, ps3 slim, and ps3 ultra slim.

 

Are there any hardware differences between the systems that lead to measurable improvements in the gameplay experience.

For example, are there differences in harddrive load speeds, or in the read/write speed of the blu-ray drives between models that would equate to actual speed increases in game loading between the systems?

 

Thanks much for your time.

Not that I'm aware - the only difference may be the make/model of hard drive, but don't think there should be a noticable difference to the user.

there is a slight difference between the models of the fat ps3 and the slim ps3. both of them work on different computing systems the fat ps3 run in LINUX but im not sure what runs on the new ones.

The only difference is that most of the early PS3's (with the exception of the 40gig models) have the Graphics Synthesizer chipset included in them. The newer "slim" ones do not.

 

As this has been answered and was very old before being bumped I'll be locking it now. Please be aware of timestamps before posting. AllWrappedUp
