Sony has released a new firmware update for its next-gen PlayStation 5 consoles. Weighing in at around 900 MB, version 21.01-03.21.00’s only bullet point is that it should improve system performance. Sony’s patch notes do not elaborate on how the performance gains were achieved, to what degree they’ve been improved, or what the PlayStation team changed to boost the console’s performance. Previously, the PS5 received a similar performance bump courtesy of its 21.01-03.10.00 system update.
