Sony has officially released a hardware tech teardown of the PlayStation 5, detailing its ports, features and more.
The video, which you can watch below, shows a deep look into the tech that powers the PS5, including its fan, heatsink and power supply unit. Some key features of note include the console’s dust catcher and the use of liquid metal as a cooling system. All in all, it’s looking about as incredible as you could hope for.
Stripping the console down to its base components gives us a look at just how much power this thing really has. From what we’ve heard so far, the tech is working superbly when it comes to keeping the console both cool and quiet.
A further look into the ports on the console reveal USB Type A Ports (SuperSpeed USB 10 Gbps), and a USB C Port. It’ll also have removable plates.
Interestingly, the new teardown video confirms that the PS5 actually screws into the base with which it’s supplied, though the video does demonstrate how you can swap the console to display it both horizontally and vertically.
For the full breakdown of the tech and all the new features from the console’s hardware, check out the full PlayStation 5 teardown in the video below!
PS5 will be available in two version: the standard, and a disc-less all-digital model, both of which feature the same specs.
Both editions of PS5 will roll out in select markets including North America and Japan on November 12. Those in Europe and additional regions will have to wait a little longer, with the console launching on November 19.
The PS5 Digital Edition will be available for a recommended retail price (RRP) of £359.99 GBP/$399.99 USD, and PS5 with an Ultra HD Blu-ray™ disc drive will be available for an RRP of £449.99 GBP/$499.99 USD.
