Corsair has announced that the MP700, its first PCIe 5.0 NVMe M.2 SSD, is now available through the Corsair webstore and its worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. Available in 1 TB ($169.99) and 2 TB ($289.99) capacities, the “blazing fast” MP700 delivers up to 10,000 MB/s sequential read/write speeds, which would amount to a 40% improvement over the best PCIe 4.0 SSDs that are available today, according to Corsair. “SSD cooling required,” reads a disclaimer on the MP700 product page.

From a Corsair press release:
On top of the impressive sequential throughput, the random read and write performance of up to 1.5 million read and 1.7 million write input/output operations per second (IOPS) put the MP700 way ahead of the best PCIe Gen 4 drives. The MP700 is backward compatible with PCIe 4.0 motherboards, making this an upgrade that will last you for years to come. Native support for Microsoft DirectStorage ensures that you’ll get the most from the latest games, while copying files in Windows and loading applications has never felt so fast.
Utilizing the industry-standard M.2 2280 form-factor, the MP700 installs easily into desktop motherboards for great all-around compatibility. To achieve its optimal performance, the MP700 requires additional cooling, with users able to choose between using their motherboard’s integrated M.2 cooling system, or an aftermarket M.2 SSD cooler such as the CORSAIR Hydro X Series XM2 Water Block. This water block fits easily into your custom cooling loop, delivering top-of-the-line cooling and performance while virtually eliminating throughput throttling.
Like all CORSAIR SSDs, the MP700 is supported by free CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software, enabling convenient features such as secure erase and firmware updates directly from your desktop. With a five-year warranty for extended peace of mind that your storage will remain fast and reliable, the MP700 takes full advantage of PCIe Gen 5 technology to set a new standard for M.2 performance.
The MP700 is backed by a five-year warranty, alongside the CORSAIR worldwide customer service and technical support network.
