Wow I overestimated both the Series X and PS5's USB speeds I thought the USB-C on the PS5 would be 20Gbps and that all 3 of the Series X ports were just 10Gbps. 5Gbps covers the standard SSD speeds of the Series X and hopefully we will get some info on the same tests done on the PS5 soon to see if the 10Gbps speeds make much different on BC games on there.
It's going to be interesting to see what the next gen consoles do for SSD prices as NVME drives at 1500-2000MB/s aren't much more than the 500MB/s SATA SSD's.
Why would Sony put a 20Gbps USB connection when the speed of the internal SSD doesn't even get to 10Ghz even for compressed stuff? 10Ghz seems just fine.
Edit: Noticed it is 10 Gigabits/s so about 1/6 of max PS5 SSD compressed or 1/3 uncompressed. Well even if it was 20Gbps that would still not reach the needed speed to play directly from the external driver.Last edited by DonFerrari - on 10 October 2020
