IT SEEMS THAT THE CONSOLES OF THIS NEW GENERATION ARE NOW MUCH MORE EFFICIENT AT THE ENERGY CONSUMPTION LEVEL
Yes, playing is very nice and all. You entertain yourself for hours, overcome obstacles, defeat enemies and become a hero, the point is that, behind all that, light is wasted and sometimes you forget that detail. Both the PS5 and the Xbox Series X are designed in such a way that they will consume a good amount of power.
The question here is like how much. Is it a higher consumption that will affect your electricity bill? Will it kill the environment more? The first thing we should do is review the hard data because those are the important ones in this class of cases and that you should not lose sight of now that you have a PS5 or an Xbox Series X.
Here we present the average watt consumption of the consoles.
- PS5 5: 50-220 watts
- Xbox Series X: 45-220 watts
- Xbox Series S: 25-100 watts
- Nintendo Switch: 10-18 watts
- PS4 Pro: 75-160 watts
- PS4 Slim: 55-110 watts
- PS4: 90-150 watts
- Xbox One X: 65-180 watts
- Xbox One S: 35-90 watts
- Xbox One: 70-120 watts
BOTH THE PS5 AND XBOX SERIES X CONSUME A LOT OF ENERGY AND MAYBE INCREASES THE CONSUMPTION OF LIGHT
Let’s go by parts, you not only have to identify that you are using the PS5 or the Xbox Series X, but also your television, which, depending on the size and model, can use more or less the same amount of light.
To give you an idea of how much energy is used, one hour of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales is equivalent to charging a smartphone 18 times. This is just in a studio for PS5. It would be more or less the same as an Xbox Series X.
Now, it all depends on the game, there are some that consume more energy than others regardless of whether it is a PS5 or an Xbox Series X, so it is a factor that you should consider.
