If you have already taken delivery of your new Sony next-generation PlayStation 4 games console you might be considering upgrading the standard PlayStation 4 500 GB hard disk drive which it comes supplied with. To something a little more performance orientated in the form of a solid state disk (SSD).
If you are then you might find this new video created but the Team over at Tested which compares the performance between the standard hard disk drive and a new solid-state disk. Check it out after the jump.
The Tested team swapped out the standard Western Digital 500GB HDD and replaced it with a 250GB Samsung solid-state drive (SSD) for $175 and a 1TB Seagate hybrid drive (SSHD) for $110 and compared the results.
Loading the menu screen of the new PlayStation 4 Killzone: Shadow Fall game resulted in the standard drive taking 60 seconds, the SSHD 42 seconds and the SSD 39 seconds. Tested explains:
“The PlayStation 4’s built-in storage drive is more important than ever, but the 500GB hard drive included with the next-gen console is slow to install and load games. Good thing it’s easily replaceable. We test the benefits of replacing it with an SSD and a hybrid drive (SSHD) to see what difference a $100 upgrade can make.”
