[1] Compatibility confirmed by KIOXIA's own testing in accordance with the PS5 manufacturer's technical requirements. Tested system software version: 23.02-, as of May 2024.

[2] With the heatsink, the product exceeds standard M.2 dimensions. Dimensions of this product are 80.65 (L) x 24.70 (W) x 11.10 (H) mm (max). For more detailed product information, please visit­ our product page.

Definition of capacity: KIOXIA defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 230 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

Read and write speed may vary depending on the host device, read and write conditions, and file size.

The line up of personal product vary by country and region.

Product images may differ from actual product.
