Sony has been touting the speed of the solid-state drive in their upcoming video game console, the PlayStation 5.
Sony Interactive Entertainment during the recent corporate strategy meeting said the PS5 will be 100 times faster than the PS4 in-terms of the game data processing speeds thanks to the mighty SSD.
“In order to further enhance the sense of immersion in games, we expect to improve not just the resolution, but the speed of games,” said Sony in the report. “For example, through a custom‐designed high‐speed SSD, we plan to realize game data processing speeds that are approximately 100 times faster than PS4. Game load times should be much shorter, and players should be able to move through immense game worlds in almost an instant.”
The PlayStation 5 will launch at the end of this year in the Christmas period
