You don’t have to wait for a repair shop to find out what the PS5 looks like inside. Sony has carried out An official (and strangely relaxing) teardown of the PS5 that provides more than a few insights into your impending gaming console.
On the one hand, it has a cooling system Elaborated. There’s a large 120mm fan that sucks in air from both sides, and a heat sink whose shape and airflow reportedly provide the kind of cooling you’d expect from a vapor chamber (like the one used in the Xbox series x). It even uses liquid metal as the thermal interface material in the eight-core CPU made by AMD to ensure “long-term” cooling performance.
It is also evident that you won’t have much trouble adding another SSD. Both curved white panels snap off easily, exposing a visible SSD bay where you can install a PCIe 4.0-based M.2 drive. Just don’t expect to replace the default 825GB of storage, which is built into the PS5 motherboard. You can also remove the panels to remove dust from two dedicated receivers.
Disassembling the PS5 console It also gives you a good look at the CPU itself, its 16GB of GDDR6 memory, and the custom SSD controller. The 350W power supply is built in, so you won’t have an ugly brick hanging off the back of your machine.
There are still some questions about the PS5, including its still mysterious interface. We wouldn’t be surprised if a third-party teardown went further. However, this could answer a lot of your design questions. Like Microsoft, Sony was interested in a design that worked quietly, not just quickly.
