PS5 SSD Expansion Test – What Happens When You Install An NVMe SSD? https://nascompares.com/2020/11/19/ps5-ssd-expansion-test-nvme-ssd-installation-test/
The PlayStation 5 has now been officially launched in the majority of the world and, although the reception has been mostly positive, there is one feature about the device that has drawn early criticism, namely the storage. Despite the fact that the PS5 arrives with one of the fastest internal storage systems in the world, commercially at least, the storage available appears somewhat limited with 825GB in the base model and once the system software is installed, around 665GB left to play with. To counter this, Sony provided users with the hardware upgradeability on the PS5 install M2 NVMe SSD upto 22110 in length and this allows users to buy off-the-shelf SSD from brands like Seagate, WD and Samsung to increase the base level storage. So, what is the problem? Well, at launch, Sony has temporarily disabled this upgrade feature to the negative cries of many. The hardware upgrades slot is STILL physically available and you can install NVMe SSD drives inside, but the ability to use this expansion slot is disabled in the software at the moment. however, many users including myself, want to know what happens right now if you install an SSD inside the system? Will it see the SSD and/or can you interact with it in the current version of PlayStation firmware at all? So, I went ahead and installed an SSD inside the system to see what will happen and the results are below.
