We've played a bit of Spider-Man, caught up on sleep, and now it's time to dismantle this PS5. The last fully-fledged, whole-number PlayStation launch was way back in November, 2013, so we're pretty excited. Here's what our gently-used system is packing:

AMD custom 8-core / 16-thread 3.5 GHz Zen 2 CPU

AMD custom RDNA 2 GPU (2230 MHz with 36 compute units)


825 GB of SSD storage (plus an m.2 SSD expansion slot)

HDMI 2.1 connectivity with support for 8K video at 60 Hz, or 4K at 120 Hz

The final spec is an important one: do we tear down the disc-less Digital Edition, or the more expensive one with the 4K UHD Blu-ray drive?

We flip a coin to decide, and quickly lose it in the disc drive slot. Guess it'll be that one, then.
