Each outlet released a separate video on this topic. Digital Foundry focused majorly on the performance differences between these models while Gamers Nexus focused on the temperature differences between the hardware.

Digital Foundry also highlighted the point that these types of minor changes are deliberate, so there is nothing to actually worry about. In both cases, the differences are negligible and the console should work as intended.

Changes in PlayStation 5’s cooling system

So, these minor changes in the cooling system, like making the heat sink smaller, may look may worry some people, but the facts are that Sony is doing just what they think will work.

The stand with the new model is easier to attach by hand, so you do not need any screwdriver or even a coin to screw it in. From the hardware perspective, the recent version of PS5 is 300g lighter than the launch version, and that too with the same dimension.

The important part of the report to note here is that both Digital Foundry and Gamers’ Nexus stressed that if owners do not want to be constantly worried about their console, then they have to take good care of it.
