At the launch of academics on Wednesday, PlayStation 5's leading architect Mark Cerny presented specific details on Sony's new console. Most of his talk was focused on the benefits of the 825 GB internal solid-state drive (built-in). What is hidden between all the feeds and speeds is the fact that the PS5 will eventually be upgraded with additional storage on the shelf. In the meantime, the Xbox Series X will need a related expansion card to maximize system storage.
On Monday, Microsoft revealed that the Xbox Series X's internal solution will be the 1 TB Non-Volatile Memory Express (NVMe) SSD, which is 20% more than the PS5 drive. The Xbox Series X will have a slot in the back to be added by another SSD, but will only accept the Xbox Series X Storage Expension Card. 1 TB SSD for Seagate Construction; the price remains unknown at this time. The PS5, on the other hand, will have a bay to download the MD NVMe SSD which is off. That should give Sony's customers more options when it comes to upgrading their storage.
There is one big line, however: The PS5 & # 39; s & # 39; s bay will not accept any M.2 SSD. To ensure high performance compatibility with the PS5 SSD's high speed – and physical compatibility with the expanding bay size – Sony will be certifying the PS2's M.2 SSDs, using standard PCI Express 4.0. Cerny said it was "possible" that the certificates would start arriving "past" a while to launch this fall.
Cerny emphasized during his presentation that it is a custom SSD SSD that will replace the next generation of PlayStation Gaming.

The SSD inside the PS5 will have a reading speed of 5.5 GB per second, using standard 8-9 GB / s compressed data input, effectively. These orders of magnitude are better than the 50-100 MB / s speed of PlayStation 4, and Cerny says it will fundamentally change the state of creating and consuming games. It is much faster and will reduce the need to throw more RAM into the box.
Cerny added that SS5's PS5 benefits will include a significant decrease in loading times, with material similarities and terrain geometry. Drawing games in person will also be a fast, recognizable consumer experience. SSD will also help release system resources for other functions, such as enhanced audio information.
Meeting the full potential of this new high-end technology requires Cerny and his team to go further than ever before in their design to remove and lower the bottles in the PS5 design. That includes custom hardware throughout, which aims to marry the drive to other essentials within the app, including the CPU and the GPU itself. It is for that reason and has an unusual size of 825 GB, the right amount to meet the needs of some of its components, Cerny said.
