PS5 Slim Hardware Teardown Reveals All Major Internal Components
The first teardown video for the new slim version of the PS5 hardware has revealed all the major internal components.
YouTuber Dave2D has got his hands on the new slim model of the PS5, and he’s shared a teardown video that has revealed all the major components within the console. Going by footage, the new PS5 appears to be easier to disassemble than the original.
The video shows that the new slim PS5 hardware features a more streamlined and compact internal design, ranging from the motherboard to the heatsink and heatpipes. The new SSD controller and layout appears different, as one would expected, given the increased storage configuration. The power supply installed in the new PS5 is slim to fit the new console form factor. Additionally, the slim PS5’s outer panels are now pulled off rather than being slid off like the panels on the original PS5.
In terms of dimensions, the regular disc version of the PS5 comes in at 390 mm × 260 mm × 104 mm, while the new slim version comes in at 358 mm × 96 mm × 216 mm. Meanwhile, the digital version of the regular model is approximately 390 mm × 260 mm × 92 mm, while the new slim version of the digital edition is approximately 358 mm × 80 mm × 216 mm.
