PSA: SSD seems to help with ps4 pro invisible thralls, sound delay and general lag

Just a PSA, maybe this helps someone.

Playing game from SSD on PS4 pro seems to fix invisible thralls, combat sound delay and general lag/slideshow issues.

I replaced Sony’s stock HDD with Samsung 860 eva SSD but using external SSD should be ok too + cheaper.

With Sony’s stock HDD:

  • New Asgarath was full of invisible thralls, flying weapons and delayed/broken sounds. Watch towers were bit better but even there I got some random thralls popping next to me in combat.
  • Desert area was bit better, and noob river I didn’t have issues. Performance got worse further north I went. New asgarath was unplayable lagshow.

Samsung SDD:

  • New asgarath now loads as it should be, sounds are in sync and lag is greatly reduced.
  • did a quick run on desert cities, all loaded nicely and didn’t face invisible enemies there either

I have recorded performance on SDD but can not link here (no links). No idea why this helps, but for me this fixed all.

Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. None, just trying to help people
