Western Digital has unveiled a line of gaming storage for PC and PS5 as part of its live broadcast. The M.2 NVMe SN850 with PCIe 4.0 interface is officially suitable for the Sony console.
Characteristics and versions:
- 500GB – 4.1GB / s Write, $ 150
- 1 TB – 5.3 GB / s Read, $ 230
- 2 TB – 5.1 GB / s Read, $ 450
- Maximum write speed 7 GB / s
The SN850 comes with customizable RGB LED lighting, but you won’t see that on the PS5. The company also revealed three external drives compatible with PS4 and Xbox One games that can be run on PS5 and Xbox Series.
The exact timing of the arrival of SSD and HDD on sale is unknown. This is likely to happen before the end of the year so that PS5 owners can buy an upgrade for the console.
