Before it even came out, Sony released their own teardown video of the next-gen console. But now the professionals at iFixit have put the PS5 through their standard treatment. They pulled out all the boards so we could see everything from a non-biased perspective. They even XRAYed the damn thing.
Just like the XBOX Series X, PS5 optical drives are firmware locked to the motherboard. So this means users won’t be able to (easily) swap out drives. iFixit showed the foam covered pouch that prevents the CPU’s liquid metal thermal fluid from splashing inside the PS5.
