Sony’s recent PS5 teardown has revealed a lot of hidden details about the upcoming next-generation home console, including what appears to be an advantage over the Xbox Series X in regards to the SSD.
Specifically, it seems that the PS5 SSD features a DRAM cache, which affords a lot of benefits for the console.
PS5 SSD Has DRAM Cache
As outlined by Twitter user Anthony Davis, the DRAM cache supports a number of handy features including faster read and write speeds, and is often used in high quality SSDs for PC. The Xbox Series X SSD on the other hand lacks a DRAM cache, while cheaper PC SSDs also not support the feature.
So it appears #PS5 SSD has a DRAM cache, this has many benefits (such as faster read and write speeds for example plus more) and is used in quality PC SSD's.

The PS5 SSD is one of the major advantages of Sony’s new console over its predecessor, offering ultra-fast loading times and ample storage for games and media alike.
Sony will launch the PS5 on November 12 and November 19 in the US and UK, respectively.
