    Not bad, pretty sure can add these into the PS5 now after firmware update

    Double the price for negligible real world performance gains. Pass.

      Not quite. There are valid use cases, whether it's for PS5 playback, Chia farming (if you're inclined) or 8K video editing etc.

        In terms of gaming it really is negligible returns compared to something like an A2000. At least in my own experience with an Aorus Gen 4 NVME and an A2000 on a Aorus X570 Master Mobo.

          Because no games have been made to make use of it yet….

          Its like when people said 6gb 1060s were a waste of money as you got the same perf. with the 3gb model at the time….

          3gb 1060s became pretty much obsolete soon after.

            @Ahbal: So wait until they're needed and the tech is cheaper?

            • +8 votes

              @Where's_That_Cake: Exactly.

              I just think its better to say that, instead of writing them off/not worth it.

              Because people still dont understand the value of extra Vram/cores etc as an example. (avg may be higher on the newer 6 cores, but 1% and frametimes are worse or closer on a daily use pc).

              For SSDs its no big deal, comparatively cheap, easy to replace, no crazy demand spikes limiting stock like with CPUs/GPUs .

                Perhaps one day a game will come out that makes use of these cards, right now they're bollocks though.

                How'd I do?

                  @Where's_That_Cake: Yes much better :)

                •  

                  @Where's_That_Cake: With Windows 11 and directstorage they should make a difference. Also sometimes tech goes up in price. SSD pcie4 are now more expensive than in March when I bought mine.

                  •  

                    @Geoff-bargain: With gaming it makes little to no difference. Moving files around, yeah there's a bit but that isn't what we're talking about. PCIE4 was at its cheapest that I've seen last month.

          PS5 definitely couldn't need more than 3000Mb/s

          It does. 5500 is the minimum requirement.

            • +13 votes

              @Void: It's not about frame rate, it's about storing the data on a very fast SSD so the RAM can swap it in and out of memory almost instantly, which makes games like the new Ratchet and Clank possible.

              No longer need to store every usable file just on the RAM or VRAM alone, when the SSD can feed it into the system almost instantly.

              Xbox Series S/X may not be able to pull off a R&C type game where you spontaneously travel to a new world as a game mechanic.

              Loading times are not the reason for needing all that speed.

                      @Void: If you have knowledge of how game development works and how the SSD speed is used to make a game like Ratchet & clank possible you would understand. It's not something that can be explained in a few words, how about you research and learn before making uneducated comments about what speed the PS5 games need.

          •  

            @Hybroid: The 5500MB/s is recommended but not minimum requirement. PCIE 4.0 SSDs are required though.

      •  

        Like chia seeds?

      •  

        With a TBW of only 700tbw (marginally more than say the A2000 which used to be half the price and 600tbw) this is probably least likely type of drive to use for Chia farming considering how much your paying for it.

    It's the cheapest ready to go PS5 SSD currently. Other 1TB compatible models are either +$100 for a heatsink, or buy something like a Samsung 980 and source the heatsink yourself.

    Keep in mind it'll probably be another month or two until you can use it, unless you are in the firmware beta program.

      Heat sinks are fairly cheap, I wouldn't base my decision on which SSD to get on that.

      • +2 votes

        Yeah personally I'd rather get a Samsung 980 Pro and my own heatsink. That brand has never let me down for SSD's.

        •  

          Bought my Samsung 980 Pro for ~$230 a few Ebay sales ago. Whack a $15-20 heatsink on done.

      Note: 980 Pro Gen 4 only! Not regular 980.

      EKWB have a cheap heatsink: https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-m-2-nvme-heatsink-black

      Or simply get the bog standard mass produced ones on Amazon which will do fine (make sure they're finned for heat dissipation, not the slim flat ones).

        Ah yes forgot to add "Pro"! Damn.

  •  

    For PC, it's quite expensive per TB but for a PS5 ready drive, it's cheaper than the other ones I've looked at.

    As with most tech, the longer you can wait, the cheaper it'll get. Isn't that right, Anakin? Right?!

  •  

    I think I'm going to wait till someone released a case/shell or mod with fans for the SSD

    •  

      They already exist.

      Heatsink with active cooling,
      heatsink with aRGB,
      heatsink with Heat pipes,
      Heatsink with Water block

      I got an amazon cheapie for $5.99 with free delivery for the WD Black. In normal usage the ssd stays cool enough, you'd need to be a chia farmer to need any kind of active cooling.

      • +1 vote

        None of these will fit or work in a PS5.

        •  

          Just get a thin thermal pad.

      •  

        I can't believe I'm thinking of probably getting the rgb heatsink. Lol

      •  

        They actually cool pretty good, but I meant a PS5 case mod, maybe one with a cutout so you can fit one of these HSF or one with a fan or fans built on the case blowing onto a standard SSD.

        Rumour is the PS5 runs the SSD hotter than usual, which is why Sony have all these restrictions

      •  

        good video to get an idea on what to look when shopping for a SSD heatsink to use in a PS5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OcItYEGXbc basically total height (inc. SSD+pads etc) should be less than 11.25mm. ordered this to give it a try: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000834407360.html

      Come on man, just wait a year and they will be on sale for $10 cheaper, only fools buy tech, always wait a year or two.

    Very tempting for PS5. Is this the same spec as the WD Black the Sony guy tweeted he’s getting?

      Yep, slightly faster writes too, though I doubt that matters much.

      It'll work just fine if not better. I'll even say that any PCIE 4.0 drive will work.

    Those hidden console costs:

    PS5 allows a faster and cheaper storage medium.

        He's pointing out the Xbox equivalent add on is more expensive

          By, 10% of most RRP's. They will come down over time, but right now they're neck and neck.

        •  

          That's a branded xbox one though, we dont' have them yet for PS5, they will surely attract a higher cost.

      At least they learn something from PS Vita.

    dang 7000MB/s this is more than DDR2 RAM Speed. Inching closer to DDR3 speed.
