https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/embed\/CaAY-jAjm0w Sony has published a seven-minute teardown video of the PS5. The teardown gives us the best look at the PS5 so far, including all of its internal parts and how the sides are removable. Yasuhiro Ootori, head of Sony\u2019s mechanical design for the PS5, leads the teardown in Japanese, noting that the entire rear of the PS5 is designed to exhaust air out of the console. Sony is using a base on the PS5 that\u2019s held in with a screw when it\u2019s oriented vertically and clipped to the side of the console if you\u2019re planning to use it horizontally. The white panels on either side of the console can be easily removed by lifting and sliding them off. This reveals the main cooling fan at the top of the PS5, which can draw in air from either side. Sony is also using two dust catchers which can be vacuumed out through two holes. The teardown also gives us a first look at expandable storage through an M.2 slot that\u2019s accessible once you remove the side panels. PS5 owners will be able to purchase their own PCIe 4.0 compatible drives to upgrade storage in the next-gen console. The rest of Sony\u2019s teardown video also reveals just how serviceable this console will be. It\u2019s clear Sony has thoughtfully designed this to make reparability and serviceability easy. The Blu-ray drive can be easily removed, and even the processor, memory, and SSD sections are easy to access. The 350-watt power supply can also be removed easily. The cooling fan Sony is using inside the PS5 is a large 120mm diameter, 45mm thick, double-sided air intake. Sony is also using a heatsink to help with cooling, with airflow that Sony says should \u201cachieve the same performance as a vapor chamber.\u201d The PS5 also uses liquid metal for cooling performance, which should also help cut down on the typical fan noise found on the PS4. Sony says it has spent two years working on this liquid metal cooling, with various tests to ensure it\u2019s a stable long-term solution. It\u2019s a thermal conductor that sits between the SoC and heat sink and should help significantly with the cooling performance. \u201cWe\u2019ve also highlighted the mechanism in the video that we\u2019ve incorporated into the PS5 console to make the operating sounds even quieter,\u201d explains Masayasu Ito, head of hardware engineering and operation at Sony Interactive Entertainment. \u201cAfter 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 \u2018hear\u2019 it for themselves.\u201d Sony\u2019s PlayStation 5 console will go on sale for $499 ($399 for the Digital Edition) in the US on November 12th, with a launch in Europe and other parts of the world on November 19th.
