If you are unfamiliar with SSDs, know that there are myriad of them on the market. To easily explain all of this to you, NVMe SSDs are the third evolution of our modern computer storage. They are much faster and more compact and allow you to update your PC storage space or that of your Playstation 5.
Gens 3 are less and less expensive, which makes more and more affordable the price of Gen 4, extremely attractive. A Gen 3 SSD was around 3000 MB / s against 5000 MB / s for those of the fourth generation. Read rates 9 times higher than on a SATA SSD. Gen 4 SSDs provide a real performance boost on the most recent motherboards such as the expansion slot of our dear PS5.
Still not surpassed by its big brother (the FireCuda 530) or other more recent Gen 4 SSD models, it remained the fastest model in its class when it first appeared on the market. This price reduction therefore makes it totally affordable and profitable given that other 1TB SSDs sell for between 170 and 200 euros.
