MSI has introduced the SPATIUM M480 Play, a new SSD. The Taiwanese producer concentrates largely on increasing the storage capacity of the PS5, but it can also be used on PCs, as with other units in this series.
This SSD has a typical M.2 2280 form factor and connects to a PCIe Gen4 interface. Waiting for the Gen5 to arrive, it is the one with the best performance, and the MSI unit guarantees sequential transfer performance of up to 7,000 / 6,800 Mbytes per second in read / write modes.
The SPATIUM M480 Play contains "high-quality and high-density" 3D NAND flash memory, according to the manufacturer, who does not divulge the memory supplier.
It supports the NVMe 1.4 protocol and has performance-enhancing technology such as a DRAM cache buffer and an SLC cache with an unknown capacity.
The unit includes an aluminum heatsink built to accommodate the PlayStation 5 system, but as previously said, it may also be utilized in PCs for gamers or content makers.
You are already aware that these high-performance units become rather hot, and it is almost required to install some type of heatsink, whether it is given by the manufacturer of the SSD or the motherboard, which is also frequently included in the high-end.
MSI's SSD will be available in 500 GB, 1 TB, 2 TB, and 4 Tbyte storage sizes to meet a wide range of requirements. It provides a wide range of data error correction capabilities, such as LPDC ECC and E2E protection, which provide a high level of endurance to terabytes written (TBW).
The product is covered by a 5-year limited warranty. Prices have not been disclosed, but they must be in line with the average of the SSD market, which is currently quite diverse and centered on those that use the PCI-Express standard. The next generation, the Gen5, is set to arrive later this year.
