The Japanese manufacturer's massive and sophisticated machine wins a delicate and precise disassembly video
The exterior design of Sony's new generation console has been a significant topic of conversation among gaming enthusiasts since it was first unveiled a few months ago, due in part to the larger physical dimensions (at least in height and depth) than any other system the manufacturer has introduced in the past. Despite various complaints that thePlaystation 5 Excessively stand out in the landscape of every living room in which it will be placed, it seems that Sony is confident in the decisions and choices they made as part of the development process - and we are now offered a video detailing the full features of the console, inside and out.
In a fresh 7-minute video distributed onYouTube You can get an impression of the VP of the gaming division of Sony Speaks, presents and disassembles the system - all with the gentleness and precision that so characterize the Japanese.
The consolePlaystation 5 rises to a height of 39 centimeters when standing on its dedicated stand, with a depth of 26 centimeters and a thickness of 10.4 centimeters which constitutes the only reasonable dimension of the product (certainly if we compare it to the plump round shape of thePlaystation 3 original, for example). 120mm double-sided fan vents with a surprising 45mm thickness are located on both the front and back of the system in the inner black base, which is protected between the two tall white panels that can be easily removed without the need for any tools, similar to opening a computer case side door.
At the base of the system you can find openings for collecting dust which can be treated in order to prevent overheating of the system over time and also a slot for drives SSD In the M.2 interface for independent storage expansion, with welcome support in all dimensions between 30 millimeters and 110 millimeters. The rest of the disassembly is intended for professionals and includes adhesives on the screws that will reveal uncontrolled removal which will likely damage the warranty.
The array of connections of thePlaystation 5 does not provide big surprises - with a connector USB Single-C type, three connectors USB Older Type-As (although two of them support 10Gbps multiplied maximum bandwidth), 1Gbps wired Ethernet connection and port HDMI Individual
An oversized motherboard in shades of green and gold is mostly protected by a metal surface at the top and includes all the hardware components of the system, including the integrated APU unit of AMD, The GDDR6 memories used by the CPU and GPU at the same time, the integrated wireless modem for 802.11ax and Bluetooth 5.1 Wi-Fi connectivity and also the controllerSSD From self-development and the flash chips that make up the 825GB fast storage. The video also notes the use of liquid metal as the thermal interface between the unified main processing unit and the heat sink above it, in order to provide reliability and effectiveness over many years (and prevent a return to the terrible days of Consoles That life on the right and on the left, we hope).
For dessert, we also get a glimpse of an unusually shaped power supply with a maximum power of 350 watts that hints at the hardware capabilities framework (and possibly also the possible power supplies of RDNA 2 cards AMD For the domestic market?) And the massive heatsink, which is based on Technology Traditionally something of heat-conducting tubes with a promise of performance at the level of evaporating chambers that have become more popular in modern graphics cards (and even smartphones).
