Yes, you can finally upgrade your SSD to the PS5 – a console that already requires quite large game file sizes. However, this is much more difficult than plugging in a USB stick. First, you must be a beta PS5 user in the US, Canada and some European countries. Next, you’ll need a PCIe Gen4 SSD for 5500MB / s read speeds or faster – there are options from Samsung, Western Digital, and Seagate.
But it’s not over yet. Sony notes in its SSD upgrade guide that you also need to consider the PS5’s cooling mechanism. This means you might have to add a heatsink to your SSD, or opt for a compatible SSD with a built-in cooling structure.

(TL; DR: Western Digital Black SN850 radiator model should work if you want to upgrade your PS5 storage.)

And an homage to the technical design of the past.
Nothing has teased the launch of a product that is almost ready for so long. Its transparent-body wireless earbuds look cool, cost $ 100 and, perhaps a little surprisingly, sound pretty good. The Ear 1s are a little temperamental about connectivity – and pricier earbuds sound better – but Nothing isn’t delivering the stylish earbuds that hit the US next month. Mat Smith checks them out.
