The FireCuda 530 from Seagate is the company’s first PS5 compatible SSD, having been tested for the console and met all requirements.
The device will come in a variety of flavours, including a $140 500GB, $240 1TB, $490 2TB.
We have done some testing with Sony on the PlayStation 5 and today we can confirm that the FireCuda 530 with the heatsink has met all the PS5 requirements. With the PS5 design, the SSD card slot is very narrow, so there’s not much room for the SSD to mount.
However, with the FireCuda 530 – even with the heatsink on the top – the slim design allows for it to fit. Of course, the FireCuda 530 without the heatsink is slimmer, so both of them will fit into the PS5.
The PS5 SSD is one of the major advantages that Sony’s new home console brings over its predecessor, allowing for ultra-fast loading times and ample storage.
