Last year, MSI introduced its flagship SSD called the SPATIMU M480 PCIe 4.0NVMe M.2 HS. However, this SSD did not have an advanced heatsink as the latest model, which did not make it ideal for use inside the PlayStation 5 console.
As you know, PlayStation 5 consoles are very demanding in terms of specifications of compatible SSDs, all in order to preserve a very fast loading of video games and shares within them. Not only are very high data and read speeds required, but SSDs must offer an advanced cooling solution during operation. MSI has manufactured this SSD with the goal of meeting Sony’s requirements and offering customers another alternative to expand their storage space.
The SPATIUM M480 is built using high-quality 3D NAND flash memory that provides data read speeds of 7000 MB/s, as well as data, write speeds of 6800 MB/s. With the help of DRAM cache and SLC cache technologies, these SSDs also offer comprehensive debugging capabilities when writing or reading data through LPDC EED and E2E functionalities.
This device will be available to users in capacities of 500GB, 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB, which should certainly be enough for even the biggest gaming enthusiasts, writes Expreview.
Furthermore, according to MSI, the dual aluminum heatsink built into this SSD offers improved heat dissipation, which ensures good performance even under maximum load. Although compatible with the PlayStation 5 console, this SSD can be used on PCs as well as other platforms that require high-speed write and write storage devices. It is up to the users to choose an SSD that provides everything they need.
