Sony has revealed a teardown video of seven minutes of
PS5, and it gives the most astonishing look at the latest console so far! The teardown

PS5 has a base that is attached with a screw when oriented vertically and you can clip it to console’s either side if
you’re placing the console horizontally. You can also remove the console’s white panels by lifting and simply sliding them off. Removing the white

The video also provides a first look through an M.2 slot at expandable storage which you see by removing the side panels. The
users can also buy their own PCIe 4.0 compatible devices for storage expansion or update
the storage in PS5.

The teardown video of Sony shows that the latest
console is service-friendly and can be repaired easily. Most of the parts are
easily removable such as Blu-ray drive, processor, and SSD sections and memory,
giving us easy access if they need a quick fix.

The console’s cooling fan is double-sided, 45mm thick with 120 diameters for air intake. It also has a heatsink to enable
cooling with airflow that the company claims should ensure the same performance as that of a vapor chamber.

Sony is also using liquid metal to ensure the cooling
effect, which can also reduce the annoying fan noise that most of the consoles
usually have.
