Sony VP provides piece-by-piece breakdown of the PlayStation 5

Sony just released a literal, full breakdown of the upcoming PlayStation 5.
Yasuhiro Ootori, Vice President Mechanical Design at Sony Interactive Entertainment, took the console apart bit by bit and described the functions of each part in a recorded demonstration on the official PlayStation YouTube channel.
So let's go straight to the obvious detail: the PlayStation 5 is big. With a width of 14.1 inches, a height of 15 inches and a depth of 10.2 inches, it is significantly larger than the PlayStation 4. Sony has assured that the PS5 is both more powerful and quieter than its predecessor due to the additional size .

PlayStation fans are likely to be grateful for this latter claim. The PS4 is notoriously noisy, even for hardworking gamers who regularly dust the console and replace the thermal paste.
We don't know how quiet the PS5 will be, but the huge double-sided air intake fan and Ultra HD Blu-ray drive should instill some confidence. To ensure a subtle gaming experience, the Blu-ray drive has two isolators to reduce noise and vibrations on the console's housing. The new dust collector should also make cleaning a lot easier.

Then there is the basis. The PS5 has a base stand that holds the console upright. However, if you want a more discreet profile, you can put it on its side too. To do this, simply unscrew the base (which has a rotating guard to secure parts) and plug the screw hole with the cap (which also comes with the base).

After that, all that's left to do is attach the horizontal stand by aligning it with the PS5 logos on the side of the case.

The rest of the demonstration was just a hardware flex. The PS5 features an 8-core AMD Ryzen Zen 2 processor, an AMD Radeon RDNA 2 GPU (AMD's answer to the latest RTX 30 series from Nvidia), USB-A and USB-C ports, 8 GB DDR 6 RAM and an 828 GB SSD.
All of this basically means the PS5 will run quietly, load quickly (thanks to the SSD), and your games will look very, very pretty. In terms of hardware specifications, Microsoft's Xbox Series X has a slight advantage over the PS5.
The PS5 is also the first console to use liquid cooling. Coupled with its massive heat sink, it will most likely run as quietly as a whisper.
The PlayStation 5 will be released on November 12th in the US, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. It will be available everywhere on November 19th.
