might just be a thing that all Ps5 owners end up doing at some point, especially as the console keeps getting hit after hit in terms of must-play games. And with that the Corsair MP600 PRO
might just be the drive you're looking for.
Which makes this Corsair effort something of an easy decision on the account of the company’s track record in the hardware space and years of creating excellent storage, memory, and other components for the PC gaming space. And even though the Corsair MP600 PRO LPX SSD is PC compatible, the heatsink design definitely makes it feel like something tailor made for the PlayStation 5. Where installation is a fairly straightforward removal of the PS5’s plates and then screwing it in.

From there the console recognises that a new piece of tech has been installed, the drive gets formatted, and you’re good to go.

Which the Corsair MP600 PRO LPX SSD most certainly does; we got an output of 6,541.936 MB/s in terms of read-speed.
