PS5 SSD Storage

Any PS4 owner will tell you – installing patches is an absolute chore. We’ve all lost count of how many times we’ve been sat staring at screen that says ‘copying’ when after we’ve download an update. Well with PS5, such woes are now a thing of the past as the Sony’s Mark Cerny has confirmed as part of the PS5’s tech spec reveal that the PS5 SSD will eradicate patch install waiting times entirely.

Married to the PS5’s CPU, the SSD that sits within the PS5’s chassis can load 5.5GB of data per second which is 100 times faster than current PS4 access speeds and over twice as fast as the SSD that the Xbox Series X uses.
