In the world of gaming, storage capacity has become a crucial factor for many PlayStation 5 (PS5) owners. With the recent release of the 8TB Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus SSD, gamers have a solution that will satisfy all their memory needs. SSPDaily has learned more about this drive.

The problem of gamers

Sony's PS5 has support for PCIe 4.0 SSDs, which initially had a 4TB storage limit. Gamers had to juggle their game libraries to make the most of the limited space.

Solving difficulties

The frustrations did not subside until the PS5 firmware update 8.00 was released, which brought relief. Sony removed the 4TB limit, allowing PS5 owners to use drives up to 8TB in capacity. Sabrent quickly responded to this change by introducing the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus SSD, a solid-state drive specifically designed for the Japanese game console.

Features of the device

Built on the robust Phison platform, the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus 8TB SSD boasts a slight performance boost over its predecessors. It delivers a staggering read speed of up to 7100MB/s and a write speed of up to 6000MB/s. This guarantees gamers minimal load times and uninterrupted gameplay.

Thermal management

An important feature of the Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus is its compatibility with the PS5 thermal management system. This drive features an aluminum heat sink designed to keep the temperature down during intense gaming sessions. It ensures that the drive performs optimally without overheating the console.

Price

The 8TB Sabrent Rocket 4 Plus SSD costs twice as much as the PlayStation 5 itself, $1,010. This is a significant investment, so potential buyers should weigh the benefits against the cost.

Since the PS5 offers 825 GB of storage, modern games such as Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War and Gran Turismo 7 can quickly fill up this space.
