With the launch of Sony's initial PlayStation 5 Beta Firmware supporting PS5 M.2 SSD Drives many in the PS5Scene are curious which internal Solid State Drives are compatible with the PS5 console, while Seagate just confirmed their FireCuda 530 NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSD indeed works with further details including sizes and pricing below! 🔥
To quote from on this latest PS5News update:

"The Seagate FireCuda 530 NVMe M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSD offers read speeds of up to 7300MB/s, meaning it easily meets Sony's 5500MB/s requirements.

Its slim design also means it fits into Sony’s dimensional limits for internal SSDs, even with a heatsink included as per the platform holder’s requirements.

The FireCuda 530 with a heatsink attached will cost $169.99 for 500GB, $274.99 for 1TB, $569.99 for 2TB and $1,049.99 for 4TB."

And from ANZ country manager for Seagate Technology Jeff Park via, to quote:

"We have done some testing with Sony on the PlayStation 5 and today we can confirm that the FireCuda 530 with the heatsink has met all the PS5 requirements. With the PS5 design, the SSD card slot is very narrow, so there's not much room for the SSD to mount.

However, with the FireCuda 530 – even with the heatsink on the top – the slim design allows for it to fit. Of course, the FireCuda 530 without the heatsink is slimmer, so both of them will fit into the PS5."
