There you have it, folks. Sony have finally released an official teardown video of PS5, their most transformative console ever, according to the official PlayStation blog post.
The disassembling is done by none other than VP of the mechanical design department and hardware design division at Sony Interactive Entertainment, Mr. Yasuhiro Ootori.
The official PlayStation blog says:
It’s getting close to November, and we are very excited for the launch of PlayStation 5 console. Today, we wanted to give you a sneak peek at the console’s interior, so you can take a look at all of the magic happening inside the PS5 that brings out the beautiful games you’ll experience this holiday season.
We began conceptualizing PS5 in 2015, and we’ve spent the past five years designing and developing the console.
Our team values a well thought out, beautifully designed architecture. Inside the console is an internal structure looking neat and tidy, which means that there aren’t any unnecessary components and the design is efficient. As a result, we’re able to achieve our goal of creating a product with a high degree of perfection and quality.
In this teardown video of the PS5 console, you will be able to see how we have thoughtfully integrated our technology into this console.
The cooling in the PS5 is on a next (generation) level of that in the PS4 Pro, and although is too early to say anything, we think that we're not going to have those issues as with the original PS4 or the PS4 Pro (overheating, loud noise, etc.)
The cooling fan is massive! And the airflow solution seems to be pretty good. The heatpipe provides the same cooling effect as the vapor chamber, and the addition of liquid cooling has blown us away! PS5 is really a masterpiece to behold.
We felt it was inevitable to make a generational leap in terms of performance in order to deliver a new, next-generation gaming experience. However, to do so, we had to balance every aspect of the system, from focusing on reducing the noise level to enhancing the cooling capacity, more than ever before.
We’ve also highlighted the mechanism in the video below that we’ve incorporated into the PS5 console to make the operating sounds even quieter. After an extensive and complex trial and error process, we were pleased with the end result and I can not wait for our fans to get their hands on the PS5 console and “hear” it for themselves.
PlayStation 5 is releasing this November 12 in the US, and November 19 in the Rest of the World.
