The release of this firmware seems to have given the go-ahead for the certification race to proudly display a PS5 badge on the SSD box. Unsurprisingly, the first to cross the finish line are the leaders in the hard drive market, namely Seagate (which also offers storage expansion for the Xbox Series X) and Western Digital (WD for short).
With Western Digital it is therefore the SN 850 SSD that is guaranteed to work with the PS5whether it is the version with or without a heat sink. Price level, the SN 850 is negotiated at $ 178 in the 1TB version and $ 420 in the 2TB version
Money for nothing
With Seagate the Firecuda 530 has to be taken over, again with quite high prices, but like the SN 850, it is the current top model in terms of performance. As always, the FireCuda is available in several capacities, with or without a heat sink. The 1TB is displayed with 270 $ without heat sink and 305 $, while the 2TB is displayed with 567 $ and 640 $ in the version with heat sink. If you ever have a lot of money you know thisa 4 TB version is also available, for $ 1110 without heat sink and $ 1180 with. Enough to indicate that your SSD is worth twice the price of the console it is installed in.
