New product as of Nov 2. See below for discussion of PS5.

PCIe Gen 4 Read/Write 5000 MB/s/4500 MB/s TLC but DRAM-less. If you are using Windows you should be fine because it uses HMB (Host Memory Buffer) which is enabled in Win 10 and Win 11.

Also available at B&H:

Does it need a heatsink or just plug and play with PS5?

You can use it as is. Would be better to get a low profile heat sink too.

On Amazon, it shows as $120 for me with an additional $40 off coupon checkbox. Seems like a really good deal for anyone that gets that checkbox.

For PS5 NVME drives, you should get a heatsink. I have a different drive in mine, but use a heatsink like this one - https://www.amazon.com/MHQJRH-hea...B07KDDKDNN

Minimum recommended read speed for PS5 is 5500MB/s. This one is 5000.

I run the drive below in my PS5 and it is rated at 5000/4400 read/write and it works fine. The PS5 self test actually came up at 5636 MB/s on my drive. There are much slower drives that have been reported as working as well (e.g. 3200)

Ordered then canceled even though I got it for $86 after coupon.

I looked up the specs and it is using a new controller, IG5220, which is DRAM-less. Meaning this SSD is going to get SLOOOOOW as it fills up. I would be worried about it slowing down as the drive filled.

The claims 5500 MB/s is required for PS5 are greatly exaggerated.
The only thing that's needed is pci express gen 4.

Also, it only has expected lifespan of 650 TBW which is really low. I would not use this in any PC application, but maybe for PS5 it would be okay? I would still be worried about it slowing down as the drive filled however.
650 TBW is pretty standard for 1TB drives. Look at the best Gen4 drives and their TBW:

WD Black SN850 1TB: 600 TBW
Samsung 980 Pro 1TB: 600 TBW
Sabrent Rocket 4+ 1TB: 700 TBW

Need I say more?

Did not realize Gen4 Drives had such poor lifespans compared to Gen3. Thank you.

The description says it includes a heatsink or is that just product speak?

What's in the box:
ADATA Technology 1TB LEGEND 840 PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 2280 Solid State Drive with Heatsink
