We already knew how powerful the PlayStation 3 console are, but modding it to make a super console just doesn’t seems right and better yet, the guy claimed that the software is enhanced due to this.
He was initially frustrated by the fact that the textures found in Grand Theft Auto IV on PS3 are not that good. Aiming to fix the problem, he upgraded his phat 60GB model – on the physical hardware side.
Here’s what has been reported back in NeoGAF:
i have spent some time ugrading the physical hardware in the 60BG Playstation 3 (going off the design of my personal so-called high end componentry: Sony ES reciever and Pionner Elite BDP 05, and Meridian DVD)
All have been opened up, I wanted to see the craftsmanship surrounding these brands for myself and why they deliver top notch audio and video.
I took notes. I set out to replicate (in the PS3) starting with the power supply. I isolated the external and internal carriage of the power supply by coating it with copper,nickel ,and alluminum to decrease RFI and EMI signal noise from the power supply leaking to the video ports of the MOBO to get more clarity to video content.
It was brought to my attention from a companies teardown results that stock is allowed 70db or so of RFI and EMI to escape the power supply by FCC standards.
I have that down to 0db or -15db to my estimation.I have replaced all of the capacitors by hand and installed Mundorf and Rubicon.
The standard glass fuses with ceramic Furutech built for solid state amps.I have set the potentiometer with my Fluke to well over stock setting(supposedly incresase read and write speeds)of the poteniometers of the BR diode albiet shorteneing the life span of the diode. this model does not include the DVD laser.
Responses are obviously skeptical, i mean, how on earth upgrading your console hardware would directly affect the software?
Well, unless he can show a video proof of that one, we called this a hoax.
