Sony recently announced that they’re going to unveil their two upcoming PlayStations at the “PlayStation Meeting” on September 7th. So, just a day before the official unveiling, a YouTube user Links-Tech uploaded a video in which he’s allegedly deconstructing the PlayStation 4 Slim.
PlayStation 4 Slim Deconstruction Video Shows Built-In Power Supply and More
Here, take a look at the video yourself:
As you can see, the guy performs a tear-down on the PS4 Slim. We don’t know for sure if it is the real deal or not. Links-Tech’s YouTube banner says “3D Printer”, so there is a slight chance that this could be fake. Despite that, we do think that this is probably not fake.
Taking a look at the video, the hard-drive caddy on the PS4 Slim seems to be easily accessible. You just have to unscrew a few screws to get it out from the back left-side of the console. The console looks compact. It is likely that the PS4 Slim features a 14nm process node, unlike the OG PS4’s 28nm process node.
Just like the Xbox One S, the PlayStation 4 Slim also has a built-in power supply unit, according to this video. At around the 15:05 mark in the video, you can see that the guy removes what seems like a power supply unit from the console.
The video also shows the console having a blower-style fan with an aluminum fin stack on top to dissipate the heat. The blower-style fans tend to be quite loud, though. But we will see how noisy is the PS4 Slim when it launches. Unlike the Xbox One S, which has a big 120mm fan, the PS4 Slim has a blower-style fan that is often found in laptops.
The PlayStation 4 Slim will be revealed tomorrow alongside its bigger brother, the PlayStation 4 Neo. We’ll see tomorrow what surprises Sony has for us. For more, stay tuned to GeeksULTD.
