The PlayStation 5 (PS5) has revolutionized the gaming experience with its powerful hardware and stunning visuals. PS5’s standard storage was 825GB, but cutting off the operating system 158GB, only left 667GB for gamers. Popular games and frequent updates keep consuming storage capacity; this leaves gamers with limited choices: uninstall games to release additional storage. Breaking capacity limits becomes every user’s popular requirement. Thankfully, the PS5 offers a solution to this predicament by allowing users to expand their storage using Solid-State Drives (SSDs).
PCIe4.0 technology has become the gold standard for gaming devices due to its superior performance and reliability. The PS5's PCIe 4.0 interface ensures compatibility with the latest generation of high-speed SSDs, unlocking the true potential of drives.
Choosing the Right SSD
Some important factors must be considered when selecting an SSD for your PS5. First, your new SSD should be M.2 NVMe PCIe4.0 compatible with the PS5's M.2 expansion slot. Second is the performance. On top of that, the most important is the storage. SSDs are available in various choices, typically ranging from 1TB to 4TB.
Now let’s check the new popular NVMe SSD from KingSpec.
XG7000 model is ideal for the PS5 upgrade. KingSpec is excited to announce that the maximum capacity of 4TB will be available soon; Reading/writing performance results can reach up to 7400MB/s and 6600MB/s.
