Actually we don't know what PS5's SSD is and the way they described it, it doesn't sound like a conventional NVME SSD. I'm very curious what Mark Cerny meant in the Wired interview about it being faster than any PC SSD on the market today and that it has custom software.Both companies are using NVMe SSD according to pretty much every rumour in existence right now. That should be it though, no more money wasted on custom tech which can limit the capabilities of the GPU e.g. losing 20% of performance compared to the competition because you had to opt for a lower CU count due to the trade-off cost off having this other tech. Honestly if either company does that I will say they're stupid. I wouldn't take inferior resolution or performance for reducing 5 seconds loading time to 1 second.
