TeamGroup’s T-Force Cardea A440 Pro special series solid state drives will be available in 1TB, 2TB, 4TB and 8TB configurations to meet the needs of gamers. As for performance, the new drive has a rated sequential read speed of up to 7400 MB/s and a sequential write speed of up to 7000 MB/s. Winter Palace Akihabara. Put the numbers in context: TeamGroup’s flagship T-Force Cardea A440 SSD for PC Up to 7000/6900 MB/s read/write speed, belonging to The fastest M.2 drive available today.
The SSD used by TeamGroup for the Sony PlayStation 5 has a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface, an M.2-2280 form factor, and is equipped with a thin graphene heat sink to ensure proper heat dissipation even when the SSD bay of the PS5 is closed.Some reviews are posted on Reddit It shows that drives with large radiators work better when the bay is left open, which is logical because the air cooler needs air to work. For this reason, it is not surprising that SSD manufacturers have decided to use thin graphene heat sinks on their PS5 products. It will be interesting to understand the performance of this drive with and without a cover bay.

It has a very high capacity and is equipped with firmware optimized for burst performance to maximize Game loading time and progress like save (this is a relatively short procedure) and graphene heat sink to improve cooling performance when the tray is closed. Unlike PCs and workstations, game consoles do not require high sustained read/write performance, so it makes sense to maximize performance in burst mode, at least they will increase loading time before PS5 games get bigger.
