Blazing-Fast Gen4 Speeds - CORSAIR Launches MP600 CORE and MP600 PRO M.2 NVMe SSDs

CORSAIR, a world leader in high-performance gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced the launch of three new CORSAIR Gen4 PCIe x4 NVMe M.2 Solid State Drives - the MP600 CORE, MP600 PRO, and MP600 PRO Hydro X Edition. All MP600 SSDs store massive amounts of data with lightning-fast transfer speeds, leveraging PCIe Gen4 technology for incredible, sustained performance.

The MP600 CORE offers up to 4,950MB/sec sequential read and 3,950MB/sec sequential write speeds, while the MP600 PRO and MP600 PRO Hydro X can achieve a blazing-fast 7,000MB/sec sequential read and 6,550MB/sec sequential write speeds[a]. The MP600 CORE is available now in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities. The MP600 PRO is available in 1TB and 2TB capacities immediately with a 4TB model coming soon, while the MP600 PRO Hydro X Edition comes in a 2TB capacity, complete with an integrated CORSAIR Hydro X Series XM2 water block that connects your SSD seamlessly into your custom cooling loop. The XM2 water block is also available for purchase as a standalone product, compatible with many existing M.2 SSDs.
Installing directly onto a motherboard thanks to a M.2 2280 industry-standard NVMe form-factor, MP600 SSDs boast extensive compatibility and exceptional performance. The MP600 CORE utilizes high-density 3D QLC NAND memory to store even more data in the same amount of physical space, while reaching speeds of up to 4,950MB/sec sequential read and 3,950MB/sec sequential write for blazing fast response times. The MP600 PRO is built with high-density 3D TLC NAND to provide an ideal mix of performance, endurance, and value, reaching up to 7,000MB/sec sequential read and 6,550MB/sec sequential write speeds.

The MP600 CORE and MP600 PRO models are both equipped with a high surface area aluminum heatsink to effectively disperse heat and reduce throttling, maintaining the drive's performance for years while adding a stylish accent to your motherboard. The MP600 PRO Hydro X Edition is the first CORSAIR M.2 SSD to include an integrated Hydro X Series XM2 Water Block, easily fitting into your custom cooling loop for top-of-the-line cooling and performance. The XM2 Water Block is also available separately, installing onto any M.2 SSD with a 2280 form-factor and integrating into your loop to reap the benefits of lower temperatures and virtually eliminating performance throttling.

Like all CORSAIR solid state drives, the new MP600 SSDs are supported by free CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software, enabling convenient features such as secure erase and firmware updates directly from the desktop. With a five-year warranty for guaranteed peace of mind, CORSAIR MP600 SSDs take advantage of PCIe Gen4 technology to achieve incredible M.2 performance.

[a]Performance and endurance vary by capacity.

It's lacking RGB and scalper pricing.

My 1TB drives does 47-51c temps when I push it, I think they just made this to go with the Hydro X custom loop. The standard heatsink on it does a good job. M2 without a heatsink easily hit 80c.

Oh no doubt that people will buy it. #watercoolallthethings

Too bad the core uses QLC... Also does anybody remember the ramsticks with watercooling while it really wasnt needed? Same thing with these SSDs.

Newegg still shows availability around 27 February.

In addition the Corsair MP600 Hydro X can achieve 7K read and write while the Corsair MP600 pro can achieve 7K read and 6.5K write.

The core model uses QLC so that prices are more affordable. A 4TB core model is about 645 dollars on Newegg.

This is now the second time I've read this today. Please go on and take some EE and physics classes and come back when you understand basic principle of flash memory. What is this, everyone is an expert in EE these days?

The Waterblock will be a waste of money for those where the NVMe is under the GPU.

Not if you watercool your GPU as well. ;)

The Core variants aren't a lot cheaper than the regular MP600 that uses TLC instead of QLC, and is a lot faster - at least on paper. I can't wait for reviews, though. The silver heatsink would fit my CPU water pump's silver accent nicely.

This is the first time I've heard this. Anyway, how much heat can flash memory actually need? I mean, your coolant liquid will never be under room temperature, and if you add the heat from your CPU and potentially GPU into your loop, you're well inside the operational temperature range of any PC component imo.
