Micron Technology has announced and released the Crucial P5 Plus NVMe SSD. With read speeds of up to 6,600MB/s, the Crucial team has confirmed to us that the P5 Plus meets the required specs to be a PS5 compatible SSD. If you’re running the PS5 system software beta, this is another option for expanding your internal storage.
The Crucial P5 Plus comes in 500GB, 1TB and 2TB sizes, and it is one of the cheapest options in this tier of SSD performance. The P5 Plus 1TB costs $179.99 / £157.19, while the 2TB model costs $367.99 / £320.39. However, per Sony’s specifications, you will then need to add an aftermarket heatsink.
