Hi, I am a potential PS5 customer and I wonder what if the internal SSD in PS5 breaks down? Will there be any way to restore PS5 functionality or will the console become a weight?

is the system stored in the internal ssd storage? in the case of the PS4, the internal HDD has simply been replaced, in the PS5 there is an internal SSD like a chip on the board which is probably difficult to replace. They could make a slot for an internal SSD or at least the ability to install the system on an external SSD.

btw, afaik, ps5 games have to be on the internal ssd if you copy them, because usb isn't fast enough. ps4 games can be on an external drive though. if you have ps5 games on there, they have to be moved to internal storage. I've been playing Ratchet and Clank, and I can tell you the drive is fast as hell. I've encountered 0 load times in my four hours.

Just buy an m.2 drive and the issue becomes nonexistent, but objectively speaking it shouldn’t be a problem for decades to come, if ever. There’s not a whole lot of writes and rewrites going on in the background as you play, and with wear levelling in place the endurance should be exceedingly high.

The latest firmware added support for m.2 expansion, anyone particularly worried about wear and tear of the internal memory can just install games on a PCIe 4 add-in drive.

From a brief read of the spec, the SSD array is made out of TH58LJT0T24BA4C chips, they’re TLC so they sacrifice some reliability and speed for the sake of capacity, but even they have a life expectancy of 114 years under normal wear conditions (around 1500-3000 write cycles since it’s 3D). In a console the wear conditions are not “normal”, the SSD array is only ever written to when you install or save (erases only occur when you write over a cell), most daily operations are performed in RAM. Long story short, unless you really grind this thing, you’re not going to see any issues whatsoever.

    http://harmful.cat-v.org/software/OO_programming/ <- OOP allows a generic build to scale approach to solve problems. And compatibility. In my experience an API/Shared Libraries by being encapsulated, is less likely to get optimized/destroyed by the compiler, specifically in embedded platforms.

    No doubt it will be slower, but if you can and have the resources to hand-optimize away the code
    , do it.

    Also allows to separate pieces in components: Init, update, destroy, which enables the whole program to be inheritable. If you're creating a first person shooter, and want to add multiplayer, you will have to use OOP regardless.

    I remember when you had to write your code exactly or things would just break instantly lol 48K was all you had on an Apple IIe and that was with added RAM ai think... Forgot so much over the years lol

    yeah, psi gets it. Imagine building a 3D game and the compiler/linker breaks your code because you didn't order the data in a certain way

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Yeah I dimly recall if your have the compiler set to optimize too agresively things can get crazy

    Like setting it really high can work but sometimes requires rewrite of code and that's if the error spat out makes any sense

    Now Apple just relies on planned obsolescence, and sell you a $500 phone for $2000, then in 2-3 years quit updating ios to make you buy another
