Default Xbox 360 SLim: loudness and power consumption put older models to shame

The new and slim Xbox 360 S is way smaller than its predecessor and Microsoft promised a lower power consumption and reduced operating noise. As soon as the black Xbox 360 Slim hit our testlabs, PC Games Hardware took the console to see if it measures up on these two points. At this point we directly start to the facts you want to know.

Our measurement of loudness shows it clear: the Xbox 360 S ist way quieter than our comparison model, a rather oldish model codenamed Falcon. 0,6 sone or 24 dB(A) is the value given by our gauge on the dashboard. In comparison, Falcon reaches 1,2 sone or 32 dB(A) and thus comes in twice as loud. The distinction gets more pronounced while gaming. Valhallas loudness is measured with 0,9 sone or 28 dB(A) while theFalconmodel is molesting you with 3,4 sone or 43 dB(A). There is just one small thing, which Microsoft did not improve. There is a fan in the power adaptor and this little guy is whirring along unpleasantly loud.
