To ensure that it performs in line with the PS5, Western Digital has verified its performance for a number of scenarios. To ensure that the gaming is fast, smooth, and visually immersive with games stored on the drive, hundreds of hours of thorough testing were put into the most graphically intense games across a variety of genres.

Gamers can save and play PS5 and PS4 games directly from the WD_BLACK SN850 NVMe SSD for PS5. The SSD’s all-in-one design combines a heatsink that speeds up installation. Additionally, PCIe Gen4 technology, which achieves read speeds of up to 7000MB/s, helps gamers reduce lengthy load times.
