When the PlayStation 4 launched in 2013 its 500GB hard drive seemed like more than we could ever use, but the size of games has ballooned exponentially over the years. Upgrading your PS4 storage is not that difficult, so here's a quick guide to help users avoid headaches during the process. Grab your PS4, and let's get started.
High performance storage is in transition as the industry is beginning to adopt the PCIe 4.0 standard. In this roundup, we'll be taking a look at the new Corsair MP600, Sabrent Rocket and Gigabyte Aorus SSDs, all new PCIe NVMe 4.0 drives pitted against the excellent Samsung 970 Pro SSD and Intel's top of the line Optane SSD 905P.
Samsung 970 Evo 2TB is $200 off today, Dell's Vostro 14 $450 off and Ryzen 7 2700X down to just $199
It's been over a decade but we can finally declare solid state drives are not only mainstream, but they're a commodity. Fast storage will hopefully only get faster but today's best choices are only differentiated by how extreme you want to go and how willing you are to pay for the very best.
Large capacity SSDs are about to get cheaper thanks to QLC NAND-based drives. Samsung's own 860 QVO are set to launch next month, with 2TB and 4TB models that are more affordable ($0.15/GB) than the Evo series while sacrificing some performance. The 1TB model is less eventful however, when you can buy our top mainstream SSD pick, the SSD 860 Evo 1TB for just $125 right now.
