Corsair, a leader in the PC gaming peripherals market and also a leader in power supplies and RAM, has just announced their newest SSD based on the newest PCIe compatible with the X570 platform. It is the MP600 and it reaches extremely fast speeds with a sequential read speed of 4950MB/s which is only 50MB slower than Gigabytes, so that difference is negligible. Corsair is also releasing products such as AIO’s, enthusiast cases, performance RAM, and high-quality power supplies. Currently, all the items mentioned above will be unveiled at Corsair’s booth.
It is to be noted that corsair’s MP600 NVME SSD is for X570 platforms only because for the time being, only X570 platforms support PCIe 4.0 and its speeds. Now these SSDs are backwards compatible as well, but what is the use of a PCIe 4.0 SSD, if it is not used in the respective port to gain its full potential.
Gigabyte also unveiled its Auros NVME SSD in PCIe 4.0. Both products use the Phison PS5016-E16 controller and 3D TLC (triple-level cell) NAND flash memory chips (from Toshiba, in the case of the AORUS).
The massive performance gain stems from the increased bandwidth that PCIe 4.0 brings. This SSD is currently exclusive to AMD X570 platform owners as Intel is a little behind and only offer PCIe 3.0. All you have to do is drop it into a PCIe 4.0 x4 M.2 slot on your motherboard. The MP600’s NVMe interface and high-density 3D TLC NAND combine with a Phison PS5016-E16 controller to enable a new level of single-drive SSD performance.
Now Corsair themselves quote this:
“AMD is making huge strides in bringing new, high-performance features to the PC enthusiast market, and we’re delighted to be able to partner with them in doing so,” said Andy Paul, Founder, and CEO of CORSAIR. “With the MP600, AMD X570 motherboard owners will be able to experience the benefits of PCIe 4.0 immediately, with the fastest CORSAIR SSD yet at the center of their system.”
“CORSAIR has long been a key AMD partner, supporting AMD processors and boards with its wide-range of performance DDR memory and PC components,” said Chris Kilburn, corporate vice president, and general manager, Client Channel, AMD. “The MP600 is the ideal continuation of that partnership, bringing amazing new high-performance storage to platforms built on our revolutionary new PCIe 4.0 ready AMD X570 chipset.”
The CORSAIR Force Series MP600 NVMe PCIe Gen4 x4 M.2 SSD will be available alongside the full launch of AMD X570 chipset motherboards and new 3rd Generation AMD Ryzen Desktop Processors in July 2019. The MP600 will be available from the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. It also offers a Corsair backed 5-year warranty along with their customer support.
Now we are excited that this showcased SSD from corsair hits the market soon. Until now, no price tags have been disclosed officially and the storage capacities as well, but we might think that these SSDs will come 1TB and beyond to unleash their full potentials.
