After a year on the market, it’s not unusual to see many a PS5 owner going under the hood of their consoles and tinkering with it so that it has more accessible storage capacity. It’s worth noting though that many NVMe SSDs will not work optimally in a PS5, and you’ll need one that meets the following requirements before you can start popping the console face-plates off:

  • Interface: PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 NVMe SSD
  • Sequential Read Speed: At least 5,500MB/s
  • Form Factor: M.2 type 2230, 2242, 2260, 2280, or 22110
  • Socket Type: Socket 3 (Key M)
  • Capacity: 250GB – 4TB
  • Cooling Structure: Single-sided format or double-sided heatsink
  • Total size including heatsink: less than 110mm (L) x 25mm (W) x 11.25mm (H)
