Manufacturer Sabrent confirms that Sony PS5 is not compatible with 8TB PCIe 4.0 SSD

Sabrent is the first manufacturer in the world to release an 8TB NVMe M.2 SSD, and one of the few manufacturers that currently produces an 8TB M.2 SSD. Sabrent has tested the compatibility of its latest Rocket 4 Plus 8TB PCIe 4.0 SSD on the Sony PS5, and it shows no compatibility.

According to foreign media OC3D news, Sony recommends PS5 users install SSDs in sizes ranging from 250GB to 4TB, but with the emergence of 8TB NVMe SSDs on the market, many people wonder if 8TB NVMe SSDs can run on PS5. So, the manufacturer Sabrent designed a PS5 SSD cooler for its 8TB SSD and tested it on the PS5, and they found that the system did not support it. The series of 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB SSD can support.

According to reports, if an 8TB SSD is installed in the PS5, users will be asked to shut down the system and install a compatible SSD.

In July last year, Sony pushed the latest beta firmware for the PS5 game console, officially unlocking the expansion capability of the built-in idle M.2 interface. This means that users can add large-capacity M.2 NVMe SSDs on their own. Sony also made it clear that the PS5 supports up to 4TB.
