Western Digital Launches Officially Licensed PS5 SSD’s
The PlayStation 5 can hold less than 10 games on average and that just doesn’t work for the vast majority of gamers. Especially with the newly enhanced PlayStation Plus service, there will definitely be a need for more space on that SSD. Now, Western Digital has partnered with Sony to bring us new options at a respectable rate.
The first officially licensed M.2 SSD for PS5 will shorten load times with PCIe Gen4 technology, reaching up to 7000MB/s2 read speed. That’s a lot of jargon that will virtually get you into the game a lot faster. It is available now at Best Buy online and in stores as well as the Western Digital store. It will be available at other select retailers in mid-August.
The WD BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD for PS5 retails for $169.99 for the 1TB and $279.99 for the 2TB. Currently, this price seems to be a proper starting point for the SSD, regarding the M.2 drives were significantly more when the PS5 was first released.
