Corsair’s collection of SSDs is about to grow with the MP700, a new PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 SSD that the company began teasing this week with promotional materials that include a new video published to its official YouTube channel. While that video has since been removed for unknown reasons, MP700 owners can expect admirable speeds from the drive, including sequential read and write speeds of up to 10,000 MB/s and 9,500 MB/s, respectively, according to benchmarks that Corsair published on its website. These numbers are quite a bit better than older products that include the MP600 PRO XT, which feature sequential read/write speeds of well under 8,000 MB/s.
From a Corsair description:
Experience the performance of PCIe Gen5 storage in your system, with up to 10,000MB/sec sequential read and 9,500MB/sec sequential write speeds for amazingly fast save, boot, and load times.
The high-bandwidth NVMe 2.0 interface and high-density 3D TLC NAND flash memory offer outstanding performance and longevity. Slot the MP700 directly into your motherboard thanks to its M.2 2280 form-factor, while a stylish aluminum heatsink helps manage temperatures and reduce throttling. Microsoft DirectStorage enables unprecedented load times when playing compatible games.
