PS5 shows your processor details in amazing photos!


Macro photography reveals a world unobservable to the naked eye. It is an art that requires specific technique and equipment, but that shows, for example, the details of the processor of the new PlayStation 5 from Sony. See and be amazed, with the heart of PS5.

While half the world is still waiting to be able to buy the PS5, photographer Fritzchens Fritz opened his console and put it under the microscope, literally. The result is some of the best photos and details of the new generation console!

The secret world of PS5 now revealed in macro images

The work was long and involved different techniques and equipment, but in the end we were able to see details unobservable to the common user, revealing much of the architecture and configuration of the PS5 processor. Above we see one of the first steps.

The fruits of this endeavor were placed on the photographer’s Flickr where we can see all the captures, work with artificial color and even short videos with extreme detail. It is a superb gallery, highly recommended for PS5 fans.

The most captivating image, however, can be seen below. There we have the liquid metal bath used as a heat conductor of the processor for the cooling system. Sony opted for this medium considering it more effective than the traditional thermal paste.

The photos of the PlayStation 5 components are so detailed that we can capture the traces of the processor’s lithography, the architecture that orders and guides its components. They are the result of several hours of work, specific equipment and a lot of work in post-production.

In the course of the photo session, the processor was cleaned from the metal bath, and the protective flap was also removed, finally exposing the heart of the PlayStation 5. The result can be seen below, detailing the “blueprint” of the processor.

For the most enthusiastic, one of Fritzchens Fritz’s followers, upon seeing his publication on Twitter, tried to place a lithographic scheme over the processor. Below we can see his attempt to explain all the components used in the construction of the PS5 processor. The schematic is very intricate and requires close observation.

My interpretation of the floor plan PS5 floor plan: 1. Surprise bomb that Sony likely cut down the 256-Bit FP pipes to just 128-Bit. 2. No Infinity Cache / L3 $, also not on the Xbox Series. 3. Might have the old Render Backend design, need higher res to say for sure. 4. …

The extreme detail of the components, semiconductors and all the silicone used in Sony’s new console is extraordinary. It is a hidden world, too long for our eyes, but now exposed by Fritz.

Regardless of preferences for one or another game platform, there is something profoundly beautiful about the microscopic detail of this human device.
