Sony’s original PlayStation, most commonly known as the PS1, made its debut on December 3, 1994 in Japan and September 9, 1994 in North America. For the time, the console looked quite futuristic, but where it really shined was the hardware. The main microprocessor is a 32-bit LSI R3000 CPU clocked at 33.86MHz and 30 MIPS, while a separate GPU chip was used to draw 2D polygons before shading and textures were applied.

The all-glass PS1 lets you see the hardware in all its glory, including the 2MB of main RAM, with an additional 1MB being allocated to video memory. When all of this hardware works together, the console has a maximum color depth of 16.7 million true colors with 32 levels of transparency and unlimited color look-up tables. It utilized a proprietary video compression unit called MDEC that is integrated directly into the CPU, allowing for the presentation of full motion video at a higher quality than other consoles of its generation.
