Reading & watching all this next gen console hype always puts a smile on my face. 100x faster, lmao.

Now the HD tech is certainly a leap forward. Mind, the same hype articles are saying PC's won't have a comparable SSD for years, when in fact there are already m.2 drives on the market that are faster, and have been since early spring. But for the PS4, it's a massive leap from the 20 year old 5200rpm HDD in the PS3.

That was the PS2. A few PS3's did have EE chips for backward compatibility but Sony nixed that feature.

Well it’s been 7 years, not 5, and the title of the article is misleading. They were talking about streaming from storage being 100x faster. PS5 has a pci-e 4.0 nvme drive that does up to 5.5GB/s and 9GB/s compressed. Keep in mind current gen comes with an ancient 5400rpm mechanical drive. So the statement is true.

They talk about PROCESSING, transferring data is NOT processing. The statement is pure BS.

Take PS4 hard drive speeds of 50-100MB/s, move the decimal over two places and you get 5000-10000MB/s, the approximate speed of the PS5's SSD-based storage pipeline. That's what it is, there's no need to bicker over semantics.

What they said and what you typed are 2 different things.
Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.

It's a non-story, that line is old as fuck. IIRC, they've been using it since they first had that closed-door presentation about how much faster Spider-Man loads on PS5 more than a year ago. At the very least, it was on one of the slides from Cerny's presentation a couple months ago, and it's not referring to raw processing power.

For example, through a custom‐designed high‐speed SSD,we plan to realize game data processing speeds that are approximately 100 times faster than PS4.
