Samsung has announced its new uber-fast SSD hard drive, and it could be the first that Sony whitelists for use in the PlayStation 5. As expected, it’s not cheap: 250GB will cost you $89.99, 500GB will retail for $149.99, and 1TB will set you back $229.99. Compared to the $219.99 cost of the Xbox Series X’s expandable storage, this is agreeable considering it's significantly faster. Furthermore, the hope is that because it’s not a proprietary format, the costs will come down quicker.
The specifications, with read and write speeds of 7,000MB/s and 5,000MB/s, do roughly match the PS5, although the Japanese giant has said it’ll publish a whitelist of supported drives in the near future, so we wouldn’t recommend podding out for this until the manufacturer confirms its compatibility.
