Western Digital recently announced that it has joined forces with Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) to provide gamers worldwide with the first officially licensed M.2 SSD from PlayStation, the WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD dedicated to the PlayStation 5 gaming console, allowing gamers to expand the storage space of the PlayStation 5.
According to Western Digital, the SSD has been optimized for the PlayStation 5 game console, tested thoroughly in multiple scenarios, and achieved a top read speed of 7,000 MB/s. In the product specification, Western Digital reminds users that the SSD is not suitable for NAS or server-oriented functions and that the PlayStation 5 game console will need to update to 21.02-04.00.00 or higher before it can be used.
