According to previous information from Sony, the next-gen consoles will promise to enhance the gaming experience through various optimizations, such as removing loading screens, for example. This will be possible because PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will have SSDs instead of hard drives.
Sony has highlighted many times the benefits of the SSD of its new generation console of PlayStation 5. This component of the system has generated divided opinions, as there are creatives who think that it will not be a great innovation.
On the other hand, there are industry members who highlight SSDs as a before and after for console gaming. Recently, Sony once again highlighted the storage unit and stated that it will give PlayStation 5 a huge advantage over PlayStation 4.
In a recent corporate meeting, Sony discussed the main features of the PlayStation 5. As you can imagine, the company highlighted the features of the solid state drive of the new console. The SSD promises a more immersive gaming experience, as it will significantly eliminate or reduce load times.
Sony claimed that the console’s SSD is high-speed and was specifically designed for the PlayStation 5. Thanks to this information, the next-gen console will have 100 times faster game data processing speeds that currently exists on PlayStation 4.
“In order to further enhance the sense of immersion in games, we expect to improve not just the resolution, but the speed of games. 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 company said.
