Ready for use in the Sony PS5 [1,2] 

By adding the P44 Pro SSD to your Sony PS5, you can increase your performance over the onboard storage that comes with the console. With P44 Pro, you get super-fast speed, so loads and saves are quick, and transferring games takes mere moments. And don’t worry—installation is simple and straightforward.

The P44 Pro Series is Solidigm’s flagship, high-performance client SSD designed for today’s most demanding workloads. With remarkably fast speed and great power efficiency, the P44 Pro is ideal for intense performance workloads like gaming, content creation, video editing, and data analysis.

With up to 7000 MB/s sequential read speeds, the P44 Pro is a superb combination of speed and efficiency in a compact NVMe, M.2 form factor.

Upgrade your Sony PS5 secondary storage with the P44 Pro

The standard Sony PS5 console comes with less than a terabyte of onboard storage space in its primary SSD. The good news is you can increase your storage capacity to play your favorite games, record video clips, take screenshots, and save other data. And upgrading your PS5 storage has never been easier, thanks to the secondary M.2 SSD slot in the PS5 that lets you add a second SSD, just like adding storage to your gaming PC.

The P44 Pro is optimized for power savings and thermal efficiency to help deliver consistent performance with minimal throttling. This lets you game harder and longer without concerns that your SSD will overheat and cause performance issues.

Here are just a few test results and that show how your PS5 gaming experience can improve with a P44 Pro Series SSD.
