Companies are offering more and more media for Sony’s new generation consoles. Addlink is clearly one of those that are most active in this matter. Today, this company has revealed the A90 and A92 media for those who want to reach for a cheap PlayStation 5 drive that meets the basic requirements, i.e. the PCIe 4.0 × 4 interface and has its own cooling in the form of an aluminum heat sink.
Addlink’s AddGame A90 drives come down to 1TB and 2TB models. They are based on 3D TLC dice and offer sequential read speeds of up to 5,600 MB / s on board PS5. The manufacturer positions them as a family that offers the right balance between capacity, performance, durability and price.

AddGame A92, in turn, is an emphasis on capacity and price, because these drives are available in 1, 2 and 4 TB variants, but are based on 3D QLC memories. Although they have the same level of sequential reading as the A90 (up to 5600 MB / s), their QLC NAND memory chips can reduce their performance when full and random reads.

Hence, there is probably no information on TBW levels with a five-year warranty, and even details related to NAND controllers and systems. The market premiere, however, is still ahead of them, and when the discs hit, among others, Amazon, the A95 series will be the most expensive, the A90 slightly cheaper, and the A92 the cheapest due to the presence of QLC bones.
