PlayStation 5 Gets Cracked Open in Sony's New Teardown Video

Richard Walker

Sony has today released a teardown video for PlayStation 5, showcasing the innards of its upcoming next-gen console, from the removable white side panels, to the spiffy stand, the massive cooling fans, dust collection holes, and the x86-64-AMD Ryzen 'Zen 2' 8 core, 16 thread, 3.5GhZ CPU.

If you like to get into all of that technical nitty-gritty, you'll also be loving the AMD Radeon GPU and the eight GDDR6 memory thingys for a bandwidth of 448GB per second, as well as the onboard 825GB SSD and the optional internal storage expansion. Rest assured, there's ample interest for lovers of green chipboards.

"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," SIE Hardware Engineering and Operation EVP Masayasu Ito writes on the PS Blog.

"As a result, we’re able to achieve our goal of creating a product with a high degree of perfection and quality." For more on the liquid metal cooling system, and the other bits and bobs you'll hopefully never have to look at on your PlayStation 5, check out the new teardown video below.

PlayStation 5 launches in the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South Korea on 12th November 2020, then rolls out across the rest of the world on 19th November.

  • Is this the console you cant preorder? Aah I see
  • Looks like adding more memory, shouldn't be too hard. Now for Sony to tell us what drives we're able to put in it.
  • They seemed to put alot of easy upgrade parts to it. Like the PS4, before the Pro. Easiest upgrade to a console I ever had. Need the max 2 harddrives and I'll be set.
  • I hadn't seen it next to a person before. So big I love it!
  • Hmmm pcie 4.0, hopefully should be easy to buy
  • It does have a bigger heat sink that the PS4 Pro. Maybe that's why it will be a lot quieter.
  • @1 Awwwww was you a little slow? Bless.
  • Just waiting on Dreadnaught to point out all the design flaws we've all missed.
  • @8 Can’t see him doing that. Surely not??
  • That stand is awesome!
  • Easy to clean the fan... nice... They made it look easier to disassemble the console. Great move there Sony. I wished they also made it easier to change parts like how easy it is to do on the PC... come on Sony!
  • I really don't see Sony making a PS5 Slim that's smaller, albeit it years down the road...
  • @11 Really? Just buy a PC then. Consoles aren’t made to have their parts changed around.
  • @Comment #4 by Patrin18 I guess you didn't see the leaked images from the factory back in June of this year that were all over the net. They need to edit the closed captions at 5:12 of this video because it reads as 8GB of GDDR6 Ram but a couple seconds latter the graphic they show in the actual video reads 16GB of GDDR6.
