With only a little over a month left until the launch of the next console generation, gamers are excitedly waiting for extra details on these machines. With so much information left to learn, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X are shrouded in mystery quite close to launch. Thankfully, Sony has taken the time to publish a new video showcasing a PS5 teardown in its entirety. From the basic front panel interface to the unique cooling system, Sony has given fans an exclusive disassembly video of the entire console.
Starting with the console fully complete, mechanical designer Yasuhiro Ootori takes the audience through a more detailed tour of the upcoming PlayStation. He goes through the main and front panel interface for USB, ethernet, and power. Ootori even shows how to lay the console upright or on its side. As he moves on to the PS5 teardown, the size increase becomes so much clearer as Ootori removes the Blu-ray optical drive. The console is also much larger than previous designs of PlayStation systems with a 3-inch growth spurt at the top to compensate for the added cooling. Taking up a majority of the space the console uses, we also get a good look at the sizeable heat sink that is used to disperse the systems’ exhaust up to the fans. We even get a good look at the board’s processing unit during the , made up of AMD Ryzen technology.
The next generation of PlayStation with the PS5 is sure to be interesting as consoles seeming only get bigger and more powerful as time goes on. Still, with only a little over a month, Sony remains to stay silent on topics of storage, backward compatibility and PS4 saves for certain titles. The PS5 teardown is clear that Sony will deliver a next-gen experience with their PS5 coming November 12th in the US and the 13th for the UK and the rest of the world.
