The next generation of game consoles was released at the end of last year. One of these consoles, the PlayStation 5, stands out for its SSD capability and powerful hardware. This high cost SSD storage is unfortunately only 825 GB. Although at first glance this size seems to be sufficient, considering the size of modern games and the space on the console is only 667 GB, it is quite inadequate. Fortunately, Sony has found a solution to this problem.
SSD support for PlayStation 5
While Microsoft solved this problem with its own sold SSD, Sony went for a different solution. Adding a space to plug an SSD into the PS5, the company allows users to solve the problem on their own with the M2 SSD they purchased. This feature, which gives players freedom, is waiting for the update from the company to pass life. According to the Bloomberg report, the feature comes with an update to be released this summer.
Users will have the storage they want by pluging the M2 SSDs they purchased into the private area on the console. The only criterion to note here is that the SSD received is Gen 4.
According to the information received, the update also allows the fans of the console to work faster. PlayStation 5, which attaches great importance to cooling, wants the SSD plugin to be kept cool like other parts of the console. In this way, it is aimed to keep performance as high as in first-party parts. How negatively this will affect the fan voice is a matter of curiosity.
