During the Consumer Electronic exhibition, Samsung showed off the new 980 Pro SSD, which was Samsung’s first consumer SSD with PCIe 4.0, and that could be used in the new Sony PlayStation 5 console.
The claimed read speed is 6500 MB/s (although the source says about 7000 MB/s), the write speed is 5000 MB/s. According to Letsgodigital, Sony and Samsung have agreed to use this solid-state drive in the PS5 game console, and the drive will be held under the codename of NVMe SSD 980 QVO, NVMe SSD 980 EVO and Unstoppable Speed.
Earlier, numerous informants confirmed that the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, which will be released later this year, will be equipped with solid-state drives. Now, various technical experts have reported that only the PlayStation 5 console will use the latest and fastest SSD of Samsung.
This is confirmed by the recent forecast of an insider with the nickname @Tidux, who confirmed that the solid-state drive in the final version of the PS5 devkit turned out to be faster than the SSD that the Xbox Series X will receive.
In addition, the Letsgodigital resource promises to show an impressive PlayStation 5 trailer on February 2. Meanwhile, the announcement of the console, which has not yet been officially confirmed, may take place on February 5 or 15.
