Sony has just unveiled the official PS5 teardown revealing all the internal components of the console, it is now confirmed that the console features Wi-Fi 6 with Bluetooth 5.1
Take a look at the teardown here:
As expected, the console is designed to dissipate all the heat efficiently and quietly, Ootori, VP of Mechanical Design at Sony Interactive Entertainment affirms that PS5 features a “dramatic” improvement compared to PS4. In the sixth minute of the teardown, Ootori reveals that Sony is using liquid metal between the APU and the cooling system, the console also boasts a large heatsink that takes a large portion of the whole system.
Ootori also revealed the ease of access of the PlayStation 5 expansion port, and the dust catchers. Users can get access by removing the white panels of the console, while Ootori does not suggest it, it’s possible that those white panels are swappable both in shape and color, drastically changing the appearance of the console.
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.
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 will launch in North America, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea on November 12, a worldwide launch will take place on November 19.
