It's just a devkit 20 33.90%
 
I want PS5 retail version to be like that 16 27.12%

Well that settles that.

@SpokenTruth. I think it's legit. Looks real to me anyways.

1). That still looks like a render.

2). Yeah, no. PS2 -> PS3 = 37x  The chances of the PS5 having 68 TFLOPS of performance are absolutely nil.

And also , Sony already confirmed the design was real during Wired second interview with mark Cerny , (even before that Code Master dev also confirmed, Gizmodo as well confirmed and the patent is real made by the same who made PS4) .

Compute doesn't always mean Teraflop number, even GCN to Navi teraflop is 1,4 to 1,5 more powerful on the same teraflop comparison, not include the CPU memory bottleneck etc.  

And even without all above , it's clearly not a 3D mock up we can easily spot that. 

Oh sure.  But consider how much of a difference that was.  Even the 1.5 differential you list up here would mean a 24x increase (44 TFLOPS) to match the PS2 - PS3 increase.

But do the same for CPU speeds, cores, GPU clock, memory total, memory bandwidth.  You will not get any of those close to the increase that PS3 got over PS2.

Yes, FLOPS are misleading for the very reasons you laid out but they can give you a general idea.  I just think that kid of claim is rather ludicrous given the realities of current hardware and the massive jump between PS2 and PS3.

That wouldn't be hard to render though.  There's not enough detail to verify.  And you both could easily be right.  That could be a dev unit.  I'm just not convinced with this image.  The lack of EXIF data on the photo and the odd location don't help.

I do like that cooling design though.  The cut-in V shape gives it way more surface area for air intake than a standard square shape does.

That slot in the lower left side.

Seriously!? This thing seems pretty big then...

I'm estimating 12" to 14" based on that disc slot size.

Doesn't seem much wider than a PS4 Pro.

this thing is unnecessary big and ugly. seems almost like some custom case for a standard computer. although if they can build slim gaming notebooks with a powerful gpu, they could have done a much better job. unless they introduce something like a holo deck and need a big case to fit anything in it.



The side vents are the opposite on the real thing. The render has the side vents facing to the back, where as the real thing has the side vents facing forward.

So air intake through the V, and exhaust through the sides but towards the front of the console? That's certainly not typical. I wonder if there were a lot of PS4 complaints from people with a closed off rear cabinet, that would hold the exhaust heat which would get sucked back into the intake and cause the console to heat up quickly, if not overheat eventually. I think this real design would still allow some exhaust to get sucked into the V though, unless those side vents aren't just on the top corners, but down the entire side of the console. That would also be a difference from the render, if that were the case.

Looks better in real life, but won't be in my top 5 visually that's for sure. Hopefully what's under the hood makes up for it and more.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

This is a dev unit.  They always look big, bulky and ugly compared to the retail model.

Still ugly as sin, we’re gonna have to see what the consumer version looks like.
