Western Digital has announced that the WD_BLACK SN850P NVMe SSD for PlayStation 5 consoles is now available for purchase through its web store and participating retailers. The new PCIe 4.0 SSD, which is an officially licensed PlayStation product, is available in 1 TB, 2 TB, and 4 TB capacities, the latter of which is priced at $549.99—a figure that some critics are saying is a little extreme based on many of the other options that can be found on today’s market. That said, the 4 TB version of the drive promises sequential read/write speeds of 7,300/6,600 MB/s for PS5 users, and there’s also a PlayStation logo on the heat sink for those who forget what system they’re installing it into.
