There is no doubt that the PlayStation 5 is an excellent console that many of our readers are hooked on, however, its biggest problem is its limited storage capacity, one of the points in which it falls short of its rival, the Xbox. Series X and it is not that the other console has a capacity to shoot rockets. Luckily we can install a PC M.2 SSD to our PS5. Like the newly released Corsair White MP600 LPXfully compatible with the console and promises capacities of up to 4 terabytes of storage.
The era of games occupying several hundred gigabytes of storage is here, little by little the 50 GB of Blu-Ray discs are falling short and there are more and more games that cannot accommodate all their content on an optical disc. At the same time, the storage drives of new generation consoles like SONY’s PlayStation 5 are constantly moving in the form of game installs and uninstalls. The reason? The lack of space, which leads to the read and write cycles of the flash memory being used up much faster.
This is the Corsair White MP600 LPX for PS5 and PC
As you can see, it is a standard M.2 type unit with a length of 80 millimeters and with an aluminum heatsink, thin enough to be able to install the unit in the corresponding PS5 bay and at the same time keep it cool. to avoid performance drops. As for its specifications, we must emphasize that they are less impressive, not only because of their up to 4TB capacitybut for the fact that with the Corsair White MP600 LPX you use flash memory of the TLC type, which allows you to achieve 1000K IOPS for reading and 1200K IOPS for writing, with a Potential life of 3000 TB written.
Of course, the grace of this unit is that with such a capacity you will not need to uninstall many of your favorite games and not only from the console, but also from the PC. Platform with which it is obviously also compatible and offers speed rates higher than in the SONY console, limited to 5.5 GB/s, since can achieve between 6.8 GB/s and 7.1 GB/s sequential read speeds depending on the moment. What is expected of any drive of the PCI Express type.
Price, models and availability
The Corsair White MP600 LPX can be found not only in white, but also in black and in three different sizes: 1 TB, 2 TB and 4 TB. However, the cost per gig of storage in the model with the highest capacity is a little more expensive and we warn you that it is very close to the price of a complete console. However, if you have money, it’s worth not having to worry about space for a few years, and the same can be said if you’re a PC user and want to forget about the continuous reinstallation of games and applications.
