The concerning factor, if the patent is to be believed, is how will the PS5 going to cool down the AMD Zen 2 CPU and RDNA 2 GPU?

In essence, Sony patented with the WIPO the cooling system of the PS5 devkit, and this raised some concerns that the final PlayStation 5 hasn’t taken care of heating and airflow issues.

The ‘electronic device (PS5) proposed in the patent includes an exterior member, a cooling target component arranged inside the exterior member, and a plurality of cooling fans arranged inside the exterior member’.

The PlayStation 5 devkit patent includes schematics and detailed specs for the PS5.

And the patent proposed by Sony for the console doesn’t look like an efficient cooling solution for keeping the PS5’s heating under control.
