One of the big advancements with the latest generation of game consoles has to do with storage speed. While PC gamers have enjoyed the benefits of SSDs for many years now, the previous-gen console did hold things back.

Now that consoles fully support PCIe 4.0 SSDs, developers can build games to take full advantage of the speed SSDs have to offer.

Microsoft’s DirectStorage technology will help with this, and it’s built directly into Windows 11’s coding. Microsoft pitches DirectStorage as a main feature for PC gamers that use the new OS.

As such, Microsoft released a new compatibility tool that will tell users whether their machine is ready to properly handle what DirectStorage requires.
