PlayStation 5 is a very interesting console, which has its main flag, the ultra-fast storage system. However, this big bet from Sony has one major drawback… The space available is short! This is precisely the reason for the Japanese giant bet on the M.2 PCIe 4.0 slot on the console body, in order to allow an internal SSD to be installed in the device.
A feature that has now been “unlocked” for various reasons! So, with the opening of support for NVMe PCIe 4.0 solid-state drives on Sony’s next-generation PlayStation 5 console, we’ve seen many good manufacturers release new, ultra-fast SSDs to grab the attention of consumers.
Well, one such manufacturer is clearly Samsung, one of the heavyweights in the storage world! A company that might have the best SSD for the Japanese giant Sony console.
Samsung 980 Pro: Best SSD for PlayStation 5?
Therefore, the new Samsung 980 Pro M.2 NVMe 1.3 SSD is designed to be used on Sony PlayStation 5.
After all, here we have a super-fast drive (read speed of 7 GB / s and write speed of 5.1 GB / s). In addition to speed, it also has a heatsink designed just to keep this drive’s performance level always at its maximum. (It is imperative that the PS5 SSD has a heatsink included.)
In short, the idea here is to offer a durable drive (5 year warranty) with premium file transfer and read rates. In a “package” it’s a bit more designed to be used in the console world, rather than the PC world. (Dimensions(24 mm wide x 80 mm long x 8.6 mm high).
We should also point out that the original Samsung 980 Pro was for many experts one of the best SSDs released to the PC world last year.
Besides, what do you think of all this? Have you already purchased an SSD for your PS5? Would you choose Samsung, or would you prefer something less powerful and, of course, for this very reason, cheaper? Please share your opinion with us in the comments below.
