4TB for US$785: Corsair launches new PS5-compatible MP600 Pro LPX SSD
The latest gaming console generation finally makes use of blazing-fast SSDs, which unfortunately also means that regular spinning hard drives can no longer be used to expand the rather meager internal storage of the Sony PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S. PS5 owners who need to upgrade their console's storage because they want to keep a significant number of games readily available may be relieved to hear that Corsair has now released new compatible SSDs with up to 4TB of storage.
The Corsair MP600 Pro LPX is a quick PCIe 4.0 drive with a stock heatsink that is perfectly sized for the smallish M.2 upgrade compartment of Sony's PlayStation 5. Its sequential read and write speeds of 7,100 MB/s and 6,800 MB/s are extremely high, and the drive should certainly endure heavy use during this console generation with ratings of up to 2,800 TBW for the 4TB variant.
The technical specifications of the Corsair MP600 Pro LPX SSDs are undoubtedly impressive as they easily surpass those of the well-known Samsung 980 Pro SSD, on which we often track deals due to its unwavering popularity. However, due to an official price of US$785 in Corsair's online store, affluent PS5 owners will have to pay a pretty penny for this 4TB storage expansion. Gamers who are less storage-hungry might be happier with our recent deal on a much more affordable PlayStation 5 compatible SSD.
