Detailed info on non-retail PS3 Models and their naming, based on the SKU (stock-keeping unit) string/number.

CEB Series[edit | edit source]

Informational Tip
These units were given to developers until the DEH-R10xx series was available, with the exception of the CEB-202x.

They feature either one or two standard ATX PSUs and optional a HDD/Optical Drive for internal use.
There's no support for a Cardreader, Wifi, Bluetooth or PS2 Emulation. All units do have one Gb-LAN port, either two or four USB ports and one or two serial ports.

All models since at least the CEB-203x do use the CXR713F120A Syscon.

DEH-R10xx Series[edit | edit source]

Informational Tip
These models are succeeded by the DECR-1000 and do share a similar case, I/O ports and functionality with it.
Like the DECR-1000, these do all use the CXR713F120A Syscon.

Differences between the 1000 and 1400:

  • DECR-1000:
    • No offical OtherOS support.
    • Gb-DEVLAN is connected to the Communication Processor
    • The serial port is also connected to the Communication Processor
    • With a pre ?0.93? bootrom you do have two HDMI outputs.
    • Not all DECR-1000's are equal! Despite Sony's documentation claiming otherwise, DECR-1000 units with RSX rom version b07 and above such as refurbished/serviced units (and perhaps some others that have not been encountered) are not capable of running firmware lower than 1.60 (from sdk 160.008). This is because the rom version is unknown/unsupported in older lv1 which will fail to initialize the RSX hardware and will cause lv1 to output a "rsx rom abort!" message, this will in turn create an exception early in lv2 boot process as it tries to use the RSX and creates a hard brick resulting in several RSX related errors such as "lv2(2): # __rsxaudio_intr_create_thread 983 ffffffff" or "graphics error 512 : 00012625 c221bbb0" ; "lv2(2): page fault handler (DSI): invalid access address 0x795d00e8!".
  • DECR-1400:
    • Supports OtherOS until firmware 320.001.
    • You cannot use Performance monitoring functions (libperf, libprof, tuner for PS3)
      • for SPU: PC sampling, Performance counters, Bookmark, RAW SPU support
      • for RSX: Signal Trace, User Events.
    • DECI3 is limited to one protocol and a data exchange size of 65535 bytes.
    • The two GbLAN´s share the same MAC ID and cannot be used in the same network segment.
    • Gb-DEVLAN is connected to South Bridge.

Debug/AV Tool/Arcade/DTCP-IP Debugger Models[edit | edit source]

Informational Tip
Debugging Stations and AV Testing Tools have the same hardware as retail units, the only thing's that differ are the HDMI encoder IC and the Blu-ray drive configuration. Additionally, all units except for the DECHA and DECHJ variants also feature a Kensington lock on the rear unlike retail models.

Arcade units are missing the Wifi/BT subsystem and Blu-ray drive, and are housed in a big clunky square box and have Jamma (JVS) I/O.

DTCP-IP Debugger consoles unique features are mainly DTCP-IP Debugging which comes in the way of video play debug, e.g. when video is being played either through the XMB or through a media server.

The minimal downgradable praxis is the same like on retail units, but differs due to available firmwares for the specific target (earlier or later).
The debug specific menu and non retail features can be seen on the Dex Options page.

  1. A 'S' suffix can be attached to the second part of the SKU number to indicate the unit is specifically for trade shows. E.g. DECH-2500AS. There won't be a TEST logo on top to visually resemble a retail unit. It is however, functionality wise still a debug unit.
  2. Quote from The PlayStation 3 AV Testing Tool hardware is available for companies to purchase to test BD movie discs on PS3 before replication and development for advanced features on the Blu-ray Disc format.
  3. GECR (arcade) model numbers are mentioned @

  • Chassis, Series, Special and Revision are optional, but either Chassis or Series has to be present
  • Type is mandatory for DEH
  • The Series does not always specify the obvious model type (e.g. DEH-H2000A = DECHJ00A)
    • But it's possible to deduce the model type from the Chassis
  • Early prototypes (CEB, DEH-R10xx) used sometimes GX or RX (where X is a positive, small number) instead of the - Revision suffix
