PlayStation 5 officially opens to expand SSD beta testing

Sony officially released a beta beta for PS5 players in the United States, Canada, Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany, and France that can expand their SSDs by themselves.

At the same time, a series of SSD requirements and usage methods were also handed over.

Sony clearly requires users to purchase PCIe 4.0 SSDs with capacities ranging from 250GB to 4TB, and M.2 type 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280 and 22110 specifications with its own heat sink.

What’s even better is that because of the size limit of the installation location, the height of the radiator is also limited. The height of the SSD and the radiator must be below 11.25mm. simple.

In simple terms, the measurement number needs to be within 110mm (L) x 25mm (W) x 11.25mm (H) / 4.33in (L) x 0.984 in (W) x 0.442in (H).

For example, Corsair Force MP600 even has a radiator height of 15mm; Aorus Gen4 7000s has too large measurements to be used in PS5.

For the experienced friends, you can also buy the oversized SSD and replace it by yourself, so that the Corsair Force MP600 and Aorus Gen4 7000s mentioned above can be used.

According to Sony’s chart, the height of the radiator cannot be higher than 8mm / 0.314in, so based on the data alone, the following options may meet the requirements.

Fortunately, they are not too expensive. Most of them are under $10. They really can’t be used and won’t waste too much money.
