CORSAIR Force Series MP600 1TB Gen4 PCIe NVMe SSD Review

Test Setup

Please read our SSD Storage Review Format and Methodology article for an explanation of our test system, procedures, and goals for SSD reviews.

CORSAIR Force Series MP600 1TB Gen4 PCIe x4 NVMe SSD test system setup table

We are using the motherboard default BIOS settings.  We have DOCP enabled.  We are running the latest motherboard BIOS.  We have Windows 10 Pro configured to run in the “High Performance” power profile.  Windows has the latest updates.  NVMe drivers are installed if present on the manufacturer’s webpage.

We compare SSDs on our graphs by PCIe or SATA version. For example, all PCIe Gen4 SSDs are on a graph for comparison, and all PCIe Gen3 SSDs are grouped together separately when reviewed. SATA is also grouped separately when reviewed. In this way, we are comparing similar PCIe performance, so that it doesn’t skew the results and you can see the best drive in that grouping based on the generation.

For comparison, we are using a Sabrent Rocket 500GB Gen4 PCIe x4 NVMe M.2 SSD.  This is a PCI-Express 4.0 NVMe 1.3 SSD and will act as a good springboard for comparison.  As we add more SSDs to our Gen4 review comparisons, we will be able to add more comparisons on these graphs moving forward.  Look forward to the graphs to grow with more Gen4 SSDs that we review.
