According to what has emerged, the new Seagate FireCuda 230 NVMe It will be a SSD Compatible with PlayStation 5. It has been known for a while about the new m.2 PCIe SSD and its twice the speed of its predecessor, the FireCuda 520. What we didn’t know was its speed writing and reading.
With 7300 megabytes per second writing and 6900 megabytes per second reading, the memory support can exceed minimum requirements from the Sony console, which are around 5500 megabytes per second. This has made this SSD a firm favorite for the speculative scene, and we now have confirmation of its compatibility.
The reporter who reported this news, Chris Stead of Finder, was made aware of the PlayStation 5 compatibility of Seagate’s device during a meeting of the latter, and Jeff Park confirmed the compatibility of the FireCuda 230 NVMe with the declaration that we report below.
We tested with Sony on the PS5 and today we can confirm that the FireCuda 530 met all the requirements of the console. With the design of the PS5, the space for SSDs is what it is, but even with the fan the FireCuda 530 manages to accommodate the narrow slot size.
Timing could be perfect, given the waited to which Sony is submitting its fans regarding the activation of the m.2 port. The console, at launch, offered 667 gigabytes of usable memory, which next-gen games did not take long to fill: the only call of Duty it can occupy over 200 of them on PC alone.
There are upgrade options (outside), but one of the console’s best features is the speed of your hard drive. Therefore, the most advisable choice would be to make use of an internal memory medium. Sony suggests that the slot can be unlocked before the end of August, the same period of hard drive output.
Australian prices consist of $ 199 for the 500GB model (239 with the fan), 349 for the 1TB model (399), 729 for the 2TB model (819) and, finally, 1429 for the 4TB model (1429). In the meantime, it is possible to resort to external storage media, but at this point it is worth the wait.
