Samsung slide suggests that they will create the SSDs used within next-gen consoles

Both Sony and Microsoft have hinted at using solid-state storage within their next-generation consoles, bringing SSD performance into the mainstream gaming market, something that has been exclusive to PC gaming for practically a decade. Yes, console users could fit a SATA SSD into their systems manually, but none of them were designed with SSDs in mind.  

Samsung has hinted that they will be powering the next-generation of console NVMe SSDs, releasing a slide which mentions the "SSD era in game consoles 2020" and the creation of "optimised NVMe" storage devices. Samsung says that an "SSD is required for proper game play", stating that game loading delays from HDDs causes stutter and lag. 

The slide below also clearly shows a Sony PlayStation 4 console, further hinting that Samsung will create the SSDs used in Sony's PlayStation 5 consoles. This makes sense, given Samsung's status as the world's largest NAND producer, which grants them more than enough volume to accommodate the production of Sony's next-generation consoles.

The next-generation of consoles will use SSD-grade storage to deliver faster loading times and enhanced asset streaming in next-generation gaming titles. This will enable faster movement in open-world titles and enhanced loading times for next-generation and previous generation (through backwards compatibility) games.

A well needed hardware change. Will be interesting to see if these are any good or if they have had so many costs cut a pc user wouldn't touch them, assuming they will use standard slot connections.
Secondly this is going to make your console cost a fortune to upgrade memory, I mean the new COD is over 100gb's and i'd rather have more than a handful of games on a console before I have to start deleting others.Quote

Looking forward to seeing what Samsung actually do as the Spiderman loading video a while back was very impressive.

This is why games going forward, Especially games like CoD that people mainly buy for the multiplayer, Should have 3 options upon install -

1. Full game
2. Single Player Only
3. Multiplayer Only

This way people could save a lot on storage.Quote

I just find it annoying having to download 100GB+, Like CoD, Gears etc... when half of that is multiplayer that I will never touch, Waste of bandwidth.Quote
