Even though Sony carried out their own personal teardown of their new next-generation PlayStation 4 games console a week before the console’s launch in the US. There is nothing quite like an iFixit teardown to reveal the inner workings of a device and compare its repair ability with other devices.
As always iFixit has wasted no time getting their hands on the new PlayStation 4 and taking it apart revealing its components to the world in a teardown that is currently taking place, so as yet we don’t know the repairability score.
To re-cap the Sony PlayStation 4 console will be equipped with 8-cores of AMD Jaguar processing power supported by 8GB of GDDR5 RAM together with a next generation AMD Radeon graphics card to process your games graphics. Other features of the next generation PlayStation 4 console include a 500GB storage drive, together with 2 x USB 3.0 ports, and 1 x AUX port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, and HDMI port.
The PlayStation 4 specs for the camera include a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800 together with (x2) pixel capture at 60fps. In the box the PlayStation 4 system will include 1 x Wireless controller (DualShock 4), 1 x Mono headset, 1 x AC power cord, 1 x HDMI cable and 1 x USB cable.
