The PS5 literally uses a PCIe 4.0 NVME drive. Those are already available on PC. You got downvoted because you have no idea what you're talking about

[SSD]Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 Internal SSD Extreme Performance Solid State Drive PCIe 4.0 ($199.98-$30 with code 15XIWFNC)
6 points • AgentAceX
That's way over priced and an old model, the current model(970 evo) is $199.
That's also a last gen nvme drive (PCIe-3)
Here's a PCIe-4 nvme drive that is nearly up to spec 5000MB/s for $199.
That's been out awhile now aswell and newer/better models will come and for less but we're still talking $100+ for 1TB. It will be like when external HDDs were fairly new all over again.

sabrent rocket : 5000MB/s peak seq reads, 200$
> ( Keep in mind that its in-game-performance is HARD to compare with Xbox's SSD since it runs on variable speeds - the numbers above being the limit -, while Xbox's SSD runs at a 'fixed' speed )
this is false, we don't know the real world speed of the xbox SSD and there is no such things as "fixed" and "variable speeds" for an SSD
but it doesn't matter, the xbox's ssd is going to be plenty fast

Yea the only thing that benefits from it is the peak sustained read/writes from pcie4 drives like this: https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Internal-Extreme-Performance-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB/dp/B07TLYWMYW/
But day to day performance is no difference than pcie3 drives, so not worth upgrading to. On a new build probably worth it though.

yupp, without the heatsink it's 199. 1TB 5GBps reads
If you just want NVMe with tons of space and read speed is less of a concern, now is a great time to browse but definitely stick to NVMe because AHCI really holds back SSDs since it was designed specifically around spinning disks and their limitations and it's not just read speed/bandwidth. NVMe allows you to take full advantage of an SSD. Even going from a SATA based SSD to an m.2 NVMe based SSD you'll see a difference and be careful because the m.2 format actually has access to SATA so it is, in fact, possible to get a SATA based M.2 SSD and it doesn't cost much more to go NVMe so it's worth it these days.

if you get a PCIe 4.0 mobo i highly recommend getting a M2 drive that is PCIe 4.0.
2 points • PM_Me_Your_Deviance
I know. I just thought it was worth pointing out that breaking the 5GB/s barrier isn't so unique. If you don't mind giving up a 8x or 16x PCIe you can get double the speed.
IMO, The big deal is getting 5.5GB/s at a price point low enough to include in a game console. It won't be long until retail SSDs catch up, so that will be nice. Although, 5GB/s is already available, so I'll probably settle for that next time I upgrade. :)

Just keep in mind that only the internal drives can have PS5 games installed. So what you want to do is save up for a compatible m.2 drive to install as the second internal drive.
And I kid you not, save up at least $300. Very large and extremely fast isn’t cheap. But you can use an external USB drive for PS4 games. I threw a 1TB SSD into an enclosure for my PS4 and I’ll carry it over to the 5.
Edit: this is currently the only one that comes close, but it’s still 2GB/s slower than what Mark Cerny suggested as being compatible. Do not buy a drive until Sony confirms what is compatible.

I don't know why people recommend x570 boards without a PCIe gen 4 ssd....
like common, it's a 3k comp and this is only $20 more with 20% faster speeds, which could actually be beneficial in someone editing video.

Not really, SSD's aren't cheap especially custom one like these, which are alot smaller than a standard nvme SSD.
Price will come down eventually, but your probably going to need to be wait a year or two.

Great consideration, I forgot about this new tech. So replacing those two 970's with say two Sabrent Rockets would be a big help? One drive is for OS, one is for project files.

Not sure if this meets any bandwidth requirements of the ps5, but currently 1TB gen 4 pcie nvme drives can be had for same or less then the proprietary xbox seagate drive ($219). https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Internal-Extreme-Performance-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB/dp/B07TLYWMYW
So yeah, will have faster and cheaper drives for ps5 even in a couple months when there are more demand for them.

And I can't disagree more with /u/noratat, on all points. Both NextGen consoles from Sony and Microsoft come with Gen 4 SSDs to enhance not just load times but so they can use SSDs as GPU memory.
The idea that you're going to spend $2k on a PC that won't even match the specs of a $500 console when you're going to be using this for gaming... seems wrong.
I'd go with a Sabrent Rocket, I use one and have no issues. https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Internal-Extreme-Performance-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB/dp/B07TLYWMYW/
Also, X570 looks like a smart buy as it's compatible with old and future CPUs unlike lesser chipsets.

Get a asus tuf x 579 board which is cheaper and offers similar features. I don't think it's worth upgrading to the 2080 super. 650 80+ gold should be good and this SSD Is faster andcheaper. https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Internal-Extreme-Performance-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB/dp/B07TLYWMYW

The amazing ones are 5,000 megabytes per second, 3,000-3,500 is decent now. They require an AMD X570 or TRX40 board. They may work with Zen 2 processors on cheaper boards.

Xbox series X has a 3.7 gb/s read speed, my 1tb SSD linked below has 5 gb/s. I also have a 2080 ti, which is faster than the series x's graphics card. https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Internal-Extreme-Performance-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB/dp/B07TLYWMYW

Yeah, it's great at the reasonable price. Also, with the money you save from the mobo add the money you would spend on the SSD and buy this . Buy the cheaper one offer for 200$, it's a great price for the hands down one of the best consumer grade M.2 SSDs.

Just search PCIe 4.0 on amazon you’ll get a few results. Again it’ll only benefit you if you’ve got the newest mobo and cpu.

> In regards to the PS5, yeah you can buy a 5GB/s NVME SSD right now, but they cost $400.
And you'll see more released through the year which will push the price even further down.
>I also don't think they'll have a 12 channel memory controller, so it still won't be as good as the PS5's.
That's not how it works, you dim. That's like claiming the GTX 980 Ti has better memory than a GTX 2080 because it's 384-bit vs 256-bit (despite the actual bandwidth being 336 GB/s vs 448 GB/s).
Channel width is one of the factors that define the bandwidth of the SSD. It's not something the SSD has on top of its bandwidth. The PS5 SSD reaches 5.5 GB/s because it has 12 channels, if it had 8 channels instead it would only reach 3.7 GB/s.
When you see a 6.5 GB/s SSD like the upcoming Samsung 980 Evo, it beats the PS5 even though it only has 8 channels, because channel width is just one of the aspects that result in the 6.5 GB/s bandwidth.
>If your PC ISN'T an 8 core zen 2 CPU with a 5700XT or better, like me, than the PS5 might be for you.
Why? Is the PS5 free?
With the money you'll spend on a console + years of online subscription, it will be cheaper to just upgrade your already existing PC to outperform the console.
>For me, I can buy a cheap 100hz+ 3440x1440 Monitor for $500, buy the console for $500, and a cheap 5700xt equivalent when the new generation drop for about the same price as a decent 4k Monitor and the required GPU upgrade. And that's probably what I'll do.
Jesus christ, you have no clue whatsoever what you're talking about.
You can buy 4K IPS monitors starting at $300. A 144 Hz one will be a bit pricier at $800, but still nowhere near as expensive as you're suggesting. And if none of that is good enough for you, you can just get a 4K TV and use it on your PC instead.
>8600k/2600X with a 2060 or less, hardware that would get stomped on by the new consoles.
The consoles don't exist yet, you moron. What's stopping those people from upgrading their PCs when the consoles actually launch?
PCs don't suffer from the problem consoles have, where you buy something and are stuck with it for the next 8 years. You can upgrade PCs any time you want.

>Mark Cerny quoted 5.5gb/s, that's not a buzzword, that's an actual number.
Are you making an argument? I never said otherwise.
>If that's actually true and achievable, then it's massive.
Oh, really? Well have I got some great news for you! They're also utilizing compression to make the effective throughput something like 9GB/s. Did I just bake your noodle?
>Being able to get speeds like that out of an SSD is amazing.
Why is it amazing? It's essentially an array with a dozen controllers. A couple of NVME drives in RAID can match it. Not sure what you think is so groundbreaking about that speed...
>m.2 drives are only able to hit 4gb/s right now.
You're joking, right? That's the very first hit on Amazon for a Gen 4 NVME drive. There are faster, lol.
>The Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD was designed using PCIe 4.0 which allows for speeds of up to 5000 MB/s (read) and 4400 MB/s (write)
2 of these in an array is faster than the Sony drive. 2 gen 3 NVME drives in an array can be faster than the Sony drive. Sony's speed isn't what's so great, it's their I/O controller and how they utilize the SSD. It's not the speed.
>PCs will catch up,
lol. You mean lap? Cuz, like...
>but that will require a lot of manufacturers to work together to cut through those bottlenecks.
Ahh, yes, cut through the bottlenecks.

There is so much wrong with OP post. So, here we go.
The simplicity argument isn't much of an argument nowadays anymore. You update apps, you update games, you update dashboard, you update controllers. Things crash, games are buggy, console decides to start to update while you are in the middle of the game (I'm looking at you FH4). You can't just put your disc/cartridge in the console and start playing.
Xbox achievements was a good argument in the past. Not anymore, since most of the Game Pass games have achievements as well. MS own products had them even before Game Pass. Steam also has achievements and so does Uplay and Origin.
Having too many launchers on PC is one annoying thing, but there is GOG Galaxy that lets you launch all games from one launcher (but you need to have other launchers installed). In the end, you can just double click on a game's shortcut icon and the game will open (it automatically opens the needed launcher, you don't have to do anything else).
HDR support sucks on PC, but ironically MS is the one to blame here. It's a Windows issue. It's the only argument that is correct.
Cheaters are on every platform. Yes, there are more of them on PC. This is something game developers should take more seriously to fight against it (and make better games, where there isn't so much loopholes).
>1/5 or 1/4 times I buy a triple A game on pc, it will have serious or game breaking issues. Most pc exclusive games that are worth playing could be played on a laptop and don’t require any legit power
That's a load of bollocks and OP knows it.
PC gaming is cheaper, if you want the similar experience to consoles. You buy the hardware that costs around the console price and then you start buying games, which are cheaper... waaaaaay cheaper, especially, if don't want them on day one and there are way more games on PC. You don't have any backward compatibility issues, because you can play a game from 1982 or from 2020. On consoles you pay for the console, you pay for the TV/monitor (which people always exclude when they talk about cost of console gaming), you pay for games, you pay monthly fees for the ability to play online and also Game Pass (which is totally worth the money, but it's also on PC - gg Phil and MS).
There is a difference between 4k and 4k. I'm sure that the graphically more demanding games on Series X won't be using high or ultra settings to be able to run [email protected] So, to be able to run 4k on medium or lower settings, doesn't require a 800€ graphics card. Plus, you can buy cheap used PC parts, that significantly reduce the cost of your hardware. I really would like to see that calculation how OP came up with this $1500, especially considering the fact that we haven't even seen yet actual gameplay videos on Series X, that can be analyzed and then compared to gameplay on PC.
Why I think OP is not actually a PC gamer and this post is just made to shit on PC gaming (for whatever reason)? Because nobody would say things like "Most pc exclusive games that are worth playing could be played on a laptop and don’t require any legit power" and "the SSD speeds on the new Xbox X are legitimately faster in games than ANY SSD money can buy for a PC". Almost all OP's arguments can be proven wrong. First link from google to prove that statement about SSDs wrong: https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Internal-Extreme-Performance-SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB/dp/B07TLYWMYW
Why I play on consoles? Because of exclusives. That's the only reason. Oh and Switch has a portability feature. Otherwise I could play everything on PC.
