Best Ssd for Ps3 – BUYER’S GUIDE

We noticed several miracle videos on YouTube that appeared to show that utilising an SSD inside the PlayStation 3 could mitigate the horrific impact of Rimlag – a bizarre phenomenon in which Skyrim players with large saves see game performance drop off a cliff after a certain period of time in-game. We’d been planning this feature for some time so arranged for our test drives to retain the older 2.02 patch. Note that this issue has now been largely resolved.

We utilised the same 65-hour save that we’d used in previous tests, wandering around each of the major towns and cities before fast-travelling to the next. In this way we can typically make the Rimlag issue kick in with a vengeance after about 40 minutes of gameplay. In this three-way comparison video, you can see that a hard drive upgrade makes a huge amount of difference to the overall performance level. The stock 60GB hard drive that came as standard with the launch PS3 didn’t fare particularly well here at all, and while there are still significant frame-rate dips with the hybrid drive and the SSD, we see three distinct tiers of performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

How big of a HDD can I put in a PS3?
You should make sure it’s a 2.5-inch drive of 9.5mm height or less. As for capacity, it seems that the max capacity supported by PS3 is 1TB.
What hard drives are compatible with PS3?
As long as the hard drive has a SATA interface and its thickness is not more than 9.5mm, insert this drive into PS3 and it will be formatted to be compatible with your PS3 console.
Can you put a SSD in a PS3?
Of course you can install an SSD in your PS3, as long as its interface is SATA and its thickness is not more than 9.5 mm. However, I don’t recommend you do that, because the interface of PS3 is SATA I, which cannot fully take advantage of SSD. And this is why I mainly recommend PS3 HDDs in this post.
Can PS3 read exFAT external hard drive?
PS3 only support FAT32, so it can’t read exFAT.
