Some PCIe 4.0 SSDs are faster in a PS5 than they are in a PC

Gigabyte's Aorus NVMe Gen4 SSD is 600 MB/s faster in a PS5.



Read more about Gigabyte claims that their AORUS NVMEe Gen4 SSDs are faster on PS5.

They probably had one single result hit 5600MB/s and then just called it good.

Wonder what Sony will say about it. That is if they would hurry the heck up and confirm actual supported SSDs for once.

I think this is down to the PS5 having direct access to said hardware and not having to go through a very bloated OS like Windows.

I did double-check to see if anyone had replicated similar results on a PS5 with SSDs using the same Phison controller. Strangely, other Phison PS5016-E16 SSDs get similar results, so it isn't a fluke in the PS5 tests.

Strangely enough, lower-spec PCIe 4.0 SSDs like the ADATA XPG Gammix S50 Lite didn't go above its 3,900 MB/s speed in the PS5's integrated test. So the test isn't overestimating the performance of all lower-end PCIe 4.0 SSDs.

Perhaps it is due to the fact that this Phison controller was the only readily available one when the PS5 was being manufactured. Faster drives have only been on the market for the past year or so.

Hm very strange. Could just be it's a similar controller to the ps5 since it's more than likely a semi custom version (with it's 12 control levels vs 2) and the ps5 is just able to take advantage of the similar firmware.


Would just be interesting to see if we ever get a real explanation from Sony I think it would be neat to learn about the tech side of it.

Well whichever they end up confirming they are going to sell buckets of them so prices on them exact ones will go up the company's would be crazy not too lol

Sorry but this is nonsense.

Mate, there are better ways to disagree with someone.
Do you think it is an oversimplification? Or that it misrepresents what you believe is occurring? Either way at least state why you disagree.

I think that WYP and NBD are probably on the right track about the Phison controllers being somewhat optimised for because of their availability during the PS5 development.
