While the world continues to await a possibility to purchase the PlayStation 5, were continuing to put Sonys next-gen console under the microscopic lense– actually, when we showed you the 40,000 tiny PlayStation symbols concealed in each gamepad, and now rather figuratively with what we believe are the very first up-close images of the PS5s real silicon from professional photographer Fritzchens Fritz (via VideoCardz).
Above, you can see one of Fritzs gorgeous close-ups of the liquid metal user interface Sony utilizes to keep the PS5s temperature levels in check. Below, find a stunning monochrome picture of it framed versus the motherboard:

My analysis of the floor plan PS5 flooring strategy:1. Bomba surprise that Sony likely cut down the 256-Bit FP pipelines to simply 128-Bit. No Infinity Cache/L3$, likewise not on the Xbox Series. Might have the old Render Backend style, require greater res to state for sure. … https://t.co/gwrXI903U8 pic.twitter.com/Vvmm1hGSM8— Locuza (@Locuza_) February 14, 2021.

Heres where you might be tempted to dive into some technical details– perhaps argue how the PS5s silicon stacks up to its Xbox counterpart or AMDs variations for PC– however I d recommend you resist in the meantime. For one, results matter more than specs, however possibly more significantly, we have not completed taking a look at awesome images yet!
