Are you sure a Samsung 980 Pro 500GB SSD sells for $300?
@edfoo: 1TB is under 300
@dreamstation: I know, I just want to hear it from Bargainjustifier.
Double the space and under $300, I think you’re right
The 7000s is the one they're using
Barely hits recommend speeds (5k vs 5.5k) but reviews have shown that the PS5 will accept any pcie gen 4 drive, even below recommended spec ones: https://www.theverge.com/2021/8/4/22608153/ps5-ssd-speed-tes...
It does work, has been tested by some YouTube channels/websites
Even the slower gen4 drives work with the ps5
Yes it is compatible.
Actually it may work. As the size fits even with heat sink.
It also says on Gigabyte Website: (https://www.gigabyte.com/au/Solid-State-Drive/AORUS-NVMe-Gen...)
Up to 5000 MB/s
Up to 5600 MB/s (read speed test result by PS5 M.2 evaluating process)
Which would suggest they have done it on the ps5.
Dang. Was really hoping the ux425 i7 model was on special. Would have jumped on it.
Usually, around $120, $109 is barely considered a bargain.
Does the SSD burst into flames like their power supplies? /s
500gb… Yeah nah
Plenty for a boot drive. Can add a cheaper and slower second 1TB-2TB SSD for games.
As someone who still thinks SATA SSD’s are fast, is there a tangible performance increase from using something like this?
yes, can be big to huge depending on what you have but you will need a motherboard with nvme to take advantage of it and a gen 4 nvme to take full advantage
