The most popular beta feature will be launched soon in July.
Gamers will be able to add some M.2 SSDs to the PS5, and a new system update will be released tomorrow, two months after the beta version of this option is available to registered users. p>
As explained in a post on the PlayStation Blog, this update allows users to install a PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD (250 GB to 4 TB) that best suits their needs. Technically and dimensionally, increase the overall storage capacity of the PS5. After the M.2 drive is installed, the new storage space can be used to copy, download, update and play PS4 and PS5 games as well as media applications. The result essentially adds a second, fully functional internal drive to the console.
This is a big step towards a "cold storage" solution, which was added to the system in April, allowing the latest games to be played directly from an external hard drive or SSD via USB. - In specifically prevents players from playing PS5 games. As a result, this feature is more than just letting gamers play PS5 games by storing PS4 games on an external drive...or just letting PS5 downloads gather dust in the storage, which Sony says still allows them to be moved indoors faster. . Save only reload from scratch. For PS5 players, this didn't solve the 667GB internal console issues to a great extent.Read more PS5 in new beta supports MSD S.2 high-speed
Some montage required
As a public beta for the updated beta launched in July, M specs are available. It appears that 2 SSDs They have not changed. Single-sided M.2 devices can be used, and Sony recommends a minimum sequential read speed of at least 5500Mbps. Compatible devices also require a heat dissipation component with a cooling chassis. Depending on the model, the length can range from 30-110 mm. Users can use or install a drive with a built-in heatsink, though Sony has specified that the PS5 bay only allows for a full SSD depth and heat dissipation up to 11.25mm. Although the company doesn't currently recommend a list of compatible M.2 models, it says that "most" of the M head numbers 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, and 22110 fall within the scope of PS5 storage development.
Several standard disclaimers apply, just like the trial version. Regardless of the device's sequential reading speed, gamers who play SSDs may not have the same experience as a standard PS5 internal storage. Sony also does not guarantee the performance of any M.2 SSD with these specifications. It's probably best to use well-known names like Seagate and WD Black, both of which offer low-end interior models and a wide range of storage capacities. (Samsung is also a reliable option, although it should be noted that as of this writing, the manufacturer does not offer any hardware compatible with internal heatsinks.)Read more Your standard SSD may be used as Xbox storage expansions
Compared to the Xbox Series S and X, which only require a dedicated 1TB memory card (unless you want to try this hack), the cheaper and wider choice of SSDs available to PS5 users that can be used with this update, There is great progress. Fans of high-end storage games like Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War, which can accommodate more than 200GB if fully installed, should welcome this change.
In addition to SSD expansion options, the new update also includes 3D audio capabilities for the TV's built-in speakers, new features in PS5 dashboards, UX, and more.
