Sony announced its 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition just over a week ago, but we didn't know what type of differences there would be between this model, and the older 500GB models, but now we do.

The new 1TB PS4 Ultimate Player Edition is the 'CUH-1200' model, up from the 'CUH-1000' that the 500GB arrives as. The new CUH-1200 model is 10% lighter than its predecessor, and has a rated power consumption of 230W, down from the 250W on the 500GB PS4. The new 1TB PS4 has real-world power consumption that is much lower than the previous model, down 18% from 148W to 122W, which is a great improvement in power efficiency.

On the back of the new CUH-1200 model, the port layout has changed slightly. Additionally, the number of hidden screws after the void seal has been removed have been reduced from four, to two.
