"Blink and you'll miss it," says Mark Cerny, chief architect on the PlayStation 5. During the new developer-focused deep dive, Cerny broke down what could possibly end up being the system's biggest selling point outside of games: the custom SSD.
Said SSD sounds seriously impressive. Without getting too technical, the component was put together with "instantaneous" load times in mind. It's all about game performance: the SSD allows games to load entire areas pretty much instantly. Death in a game will no longer result in a load screen. Neither will fast travel.
According to Cerny, this is the end of load times as we know them. Sony seems to be going all-in on this super fast SSD, and we can't wait to see it in action.
