A real developer kit, not a render!

We already know a lot about Sony's PlayStation 5 console, from its use of AMD's Zen CPU cores and Navi/RDNA graphics hardware to its use of solid-state storage and hardware-accelerated raytracing.    

Patents for Sony's PlayStation 5 development kit have also been circulating online, but now, we have an image of the real things. That's right; this is Sony's PlayStation 5 development kit, complete with its V-style vent and all of the useful add-ons that developers can expect. This leaked image comes via ZONEofTECH

Looking at the image below we can see that the PlayStation 5 developer kit is designed to be stackable, with the kit featuring both top and bottom-mounted rubber feet. This, when combined with the system's V-shaped vents, allows multiple developer kits to be stacked without starving each console of airflow. With prior console generations, we have seen developers stack their development kits with lego spacers to ensure that each console has adequate airflow. Sony has considered this with PlayStation 5 and has ensured that the development kit is stackable without any modification. 

We know that Sony's PlayStation 5 will utilise 100GB 4K Bly-Ray disks and utilise an 8-core, 16-thread AMD Zen 2 processor. That said, we do not know if these CPU cores will contain any PlayStation-exclusive modifications or other console-grade customisations. With AMD's Zen 2 cores, we expect that PlayStation 5 to offer a significant performance boost over PlayStation 4, both in terms of IPC and core clock speeds.

At this time it is unknown whether or not Sony's PlayStation 5 developer kit will have its V-style design make it into consumer-grade PlayStation 5 consoles. Expect major design changes for Sony's finalised PlayStation 5 consoles. 

Sony's PlayStation 5 console will release sometime within the Holiday 2020 timeframe. We expect a launch in late November 2020.

Wow and I thought these images with the V-Style were VERY OBVIOUSLY fakeBut that style makes sense because 5 = V and I haven't thought about that until now. Looks kinda cool with this in mind.Quote

As I always say..... When the rumours start flying at least one will turn out to be true. It's always like that.Quote

Devkits don't always match the console in style.

To be fair those leaks were directly from patents and confirmed by multiple industry sources, however the 3D renders before were interpretations of those patents by third parties. But yeah it's a pretty smart way of increasing surface area for cooling intake while still allowing stacking, good for a devkit but obviously fugly.Quote
