Beware: Final Fantasy 16 Could Overheat Your PS5!
As one of the most anticipated releases of 2021, Final Fantasy XVI is set to offer one of the most massive gaming worlds ever – and with the release of the latest PlayStation 5 console, fans can finally take advantage of that. But, as with any modern game, there is more power being pushed here than ever before – and that means the hardware must be able to keep up. Unfortunately, with the amount of energy this game requires, there is a chance that the game could potentially cause your PlayStation 5 to overheat.
There are two main causes that can potentially contribute to your PlayStation 5 overheating while playing Final Fantasy XVI. The first is the sheer amount of energy being used by the game itself; this is entirely expected and can be offset by simply increasing the fan output on your PS5. Doing this means that the system will need to work harder to keep the internals cool, so make sure you regularly check the temperature of your console.
The second contributor is more problematic; in general the PlayStation 5 console is designed to run cooler than other devices, but the addition of a new triple threat system architecture could potentially end up having the opposite effect. This architecture, which includes a CPU, GPU and SSD, is intended to provide better performance, but the high level of graphics prowess that the game requires could cause the system to overheat if it is not carefully managed.
If you want to avoid this issue, the best thing you can do is make sure your console is in a well-ventilated area with plenty of airflow. This will ensure that the fans run at their optimum output and that your console remains cool. Additionally, take the time to check on the temperature of your console often and make sure you keep an eye out for any signs of overheating. If something does start to get too hot, don’t hesitate to shut it off and let it cool down.
Final Fantasy XVI is set to be a massive success when it releases – and with the PlayStation 5 on its way, you’ll be able to experience all of the game’s glory in stunning 4K. However, if you don’t take the time to ensure that your console is working properly, you might end up paying for it in the long-run. Make sure you’re aware of the risks involved and keep an eye on your console’s temperature to ensure you have the best experience possible.
