Samsung 980 PRO (MZ-V8P500BW) // Amazon

Since the update last September, it is possible to increase the storage capacity of the PlayStation 5 console and it finally supports M.2 SSD. Samsung, one of the biggest SSD manufacturers, took the opportunity to present a special SSD for PS5. It is the 980 Pro model, the latter perfectly complies with the conditions requested by Sony, offering quite high reading speeds and a good storage capacity to power your PS5. Today this SSD is cheaper thanks to a nice discount of 26%.

This SSD will be perfect for your PS5 because …

  • Delivers speeds of up to 7,000MB / s
  • It has the advantage of having a thermal controller.
  • And it offers a storage amount of 500 GB

Instead of a crossed out price of 124.94 euros, the Samsung 980 Pro (MZ-V8P500BW) M.2 500 GB SSD is currently for sale at 92.19 euros on Amazon.

A somewhat dangerous installation on the PS5

When competitor Microsoft opts for a proprietary expansion card that is easy to install in its Xbox Series X, Sony opts for a standard solution, a PC NVMe SSD, but a bit more complex to install. It’s usually pretty simple and quick to install on a PC, that’s another story on a PS5. To do this, you must first make sure to update the console, equip yourself with a Phillips screwdriver, be delicate and be patient. But don’t worry, if you want to install it on your next generation console, we recommend this article that contains all the steps to perform to install the SSD without problem, and which is accompanied by a video.

An SSD specially designed for the Sony console

As said above, you need to be able to maintain the performance of the console, and that is why Sony does not accept any SSD in its machine. So it is not enough to be an NVMe SSD, it must be able to meet specific criteria in terms of interface, speed and format, of course. And the Samsung 980 Pro is perfect because it offers a theoretical performance superior to Sony’s requirements, with its PCIe 4.0 interface, its speeds go up to 7000 MB / s in reading and 5100 MB / s in writing.

This is more than enough, because the Japanese firm recommends at least a read speed of at least 5500MB / s. The latter even integrates a heat sink directly which allows to avoid any overheating that could cause performance losses. Compared to SATA SSDs, Samsung mentions that this time around speeds almost 13 times higher. Therefore, it will provide good stability for intensive uses such as gaming, video editing, content creation, and demanding applications.

More storage and not bad

Unfortunately the next generation console of the Japanese brand only has 667 GB of internal storage … It may seem like a lot, but when some games exceed 100 GB, after 4 or 5 games installed on the console, the storage quickly saturates. It is true that we are more comfortable with a 1TB storage SSD, but this model still has the advantage of bringing 500 GB of additional storage to your console. This way you will have almost double the space to be able to enjoy more video games, or even applications and software if you want to associate it with a PC. This SSD will respond very well and will be able to reduce the loading time of your video games.
