If you want to replace your existing PS5 SSD for a new one this Cyber Monday, then the cheapest you can buy right now with a heatsink is the 1TB version of XPG Gammix S70 Blade Gen4 SSD from Amazon.

There are slightly cheaper alternatives around (like this $125 SSD from PNY), but they don't come with a heatsink, a necessary addon to any SSD that goes into Sony's new gaming console. 

At $129.99 on Amazon, this is the cheapest it has been since it first tracked back in September 2021. As a comparison, that is about half the price of an equivalent WD_Black SN850.

The XPG 1TB Gammix S70 Blade uses PCIe Gen4 technology to reach speeds of up to 7,400MBps, far above the minimum 5,500MBps required by the PS5. That's faster than the Samsung 980 Pro which hits 7,000MBps read speeds and joint-fastest in our leaderboard with the Patriot Viper VP4300.

The Gammix already comes with an aluminum heatsink and is backed by a very solid 5-year warranty. Note that to be able to work on PS5, PS5 firmware 21.02-04.00.00.42 or higher is required and that even if the continuous reading and writing speed is higher than the official standard, not all in-game performance features will match the built-in solid state drive of the PS5 console.

This is the cheapest PS5 SSD of any capacity we could get that can be slot in a PS5 without any additional third party heat sink. 1TB might not sound a lot but should still allow you to store 10 or so AAA games.

With the PS5 continuing to be hard to find and unlikely to be discounted during Cyber Monday 2021, picking up games and accessories will be where the real savings are. Some retailers are offering some tempting discounts ahead of the sales extravaganza, though, such as this delightful desktop storage deal. 

If you’re running out of room to store your favorite PS5 games, don’t forget to keep an eye on our Black Friday PS5 external hard drive deals and PS5 SSD Black Friday deals, as well as our main PS5 Black Friday deals hub, so you can save if you’re planning to extend your storage.
