It is no longer news to anyone that Sony will equip its new generation PlayStation 5 console with a super fast SSD, probably PCIe 4.0, in order to take advantage of the AMD platform on which the console is based.
However, when a company spokesman went public a few months ago saying that the manufacturer would use an SSD significantly faster than any SSD available on the PC market … Many users doubted the claim.
- New Leak claims that PS5 is superior to the new Xbox … In everything!
However, it appears that the claims were indeed true, as the new Sony PlayStation 5 is expected to use an SSD very similar to the recently launched Samsung 980 NVME.
PlayStation 5 SSD will be able to exceed 6GB per second!
So, in case you didn't know, Samsung took advantage of CES 2020 to present its new PCIe 4.0 SSD. Namely the new 980 Pro which should be able to reach a super fast 6.5GB / s.
That said, it is obvious that Sony is not thinking of using the top of Samsung's tops … Still, it won't be badly served. At the end of the cable, the new PS5 should use a Samsung 980 Evo SSD, which in turn should be able to reach a no less astonishing 6 GB / s.
The difference between Samsung's Evo and Pro ranges is that the first family uses TLC VNAND chips. Which makes the product cheaper, less fast, less durable, but able to reach the market with a very interesting capacity.
In short, although we are not talking about Samsung's fastest SSD, we are looking at a product capable of achieving a fantastic 6GB / s! Which should help Sony a lot in its mission to eliminate any and all loading times.
Of course, there is also a chance that Sony could choose the cheapest QVO SSD … But this would dramatically reduce speed, as well as its durability. Furthermore, it would go completely against all statements from the past.
