    Digital Foundry – Slower than recommended external SSD still runs Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

    Digital Foundry tested Ratchet & Clanck: Rift Apart on PS5 using a significantly slower external SSD than Sony recommends, showing that the game works smoothly even with the much-hyped "dimensional jumps." During game loading, the WD SN750 SE (slowest SSD) and the WD SN850 (fastest SSD) performed nearly identically.

    The fact that the WD SN750 SE can run Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart flawlessly proves that the game doesn’t require the PS5’s ultra-fast SSD, as a developer has also stated. Even so, this isn’t to say that the game doesn’t benefit from having a fast SSD; it merely means that stating the game’s impossibility to run on other systems owing to dimensional leaping features is exaggerated.
