The latest version of a PlayStation 5-except Ratchet and Clank: Rift ApartDeveloper ot Insomniac Games According to the storage speed that we can buy and insert into the PlayStation 5 via the M.2 SSD connector, it is hardly distinguishable from the SSD soldered to the console …
The new PlayStation 5 firmware is only available to beta testers, but with that we now have the opportunity to offer the long-promised expansion of SSD storage. Insomniac Games, part of Sony Interactive Entertainment, has begun testing external SSDs thanks to new system software, and it has done surprisingly well.
Mike Fitzgerald, Head of Technology Essentials at Insomniac Games on Twitter He wrote that testers of the new PlayStation 5 firmware are excited to come up with the option to expand the M.2 SSD. Sure, many different games and hosting are tested and compared from public beta results, but a lot of Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart can tell you that the results look good.
he addedthat studio-tested recommended 4th generation SSDs are virtually indistinguishable from the PlayStation 5’s built-in SSD. The input/output (I/O) path is still in use (due to hardware decompression Kraken, for example), and he’s seriously pushing charging moments that can be described as more serious in the new Ratchet & Clank game.
SSDs that don’t meet the recommended specifications don’t show such poor results, but charging times can be slowed by up to 15% in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart sectors that require more serious loading. That’s why Fitzgerald asked us to keep technical expectations in mind (and consider a powerful enough SSD) when thinking about shopping, as the game is designed for good quality storage.
Currently, many SSDs have not been announced, which have reached the level set by Sony. We have already written about the Seagate FireCuda 530Western Digital joined recently. All that can be said is that SSDs are really toxic.
