Amazon is now offering a nice reduction on the WD_Black SN850 NVMe SSD with a capacity of 1 TB. Powerful and reliable, this SSD benefits from a 26% reduction to go to 154.49 euros against 209 euros usually.
If you are looking for an SSD for Sony’s next-gen console, you must first ensure that the drive meets the requirements required by the PS5, especially in terms of size and performance. WD_BLACK’s SN850 SSD perfectly meets the requirements demanded by the Japanese manufacturer, offering fairly high read speeds and a storage capacity of 1 TB. And right now, it’s at a better price thanks to a 26% discount .
What to remember about the SN850 SSD
- It offers speeds of up to 7,000 MB/s
- It has the advantage of having a heat sink
- And it offers 1TB of extra storage
Instead of a price crossed out at 209 euros, the 1 TB WD_BLACK SN850 M.2 NVMe SSD is currently available on sale at 154.49 euros on the Amazon site, or nearly 55 euros off.
A different approach compared to the competition
When competitor Microsoft opts for a proprietary expansion card that is easy to install on its Xbox Series X, Sony has chosen a standard solution, an NVMe PC SSD, but a little more complex to install. You will first need to update the PlayStation 5, equip yourself with a Phillips screwdriver, be delicate and be patient. But don’t worry, if you want to install it on your next-gen console, we recommend this article which includes all the steps to follow to install the SSD without any problem, and which is accompanied by a video.
The SSD approved by the architect of the PS5
As said before, you have to be able to maintain the performance of the console, and that’s why Sony does not accept any SSD in its machine. It must be able to meet specific criteria in terms of interface, speed and format of course. And in this good plan, we have what you need. The WD BLACK SN850 has all the features to suit Sony’s new next-gen console. It is a PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD offers internal transfer speeds of 7,000 MB / s read, and 4,100 MB / s write. Which is more than enough, because the Japanese firm recommends at least a read speed of at least 5500 MB/s.
Wertern Digital even equips its SSD with a heat sink, highly recommended to avoid any overheating which could limit the console’s performance. The icing on the cake, this SSD was recommended by the architect of the PlayStation 5, Mark Cerny. And he himself chose this SSD for his console – pretty cool. As for storage, this SSD has a storage capacity of 1 TB. A real boon for those who have reached the storage limit of the console (only 667 GB). With this SSD you will therefore be able to enjoy more video games, or even applications and software if you want to associate it with a PC. This SSD will be very responsive and able to reduce the loading time of your video games.
