The Corsair MP600 Pro is the fastest SSD we've ever tested. It is based on the brand-new Phison E18 controller, which has support for the PCI-Express 4.0 interface that doubles maximum throughput. At $225 for the 1 TB version, the Corsair MP600 Pro is quite expensive, but could it be worth it?

Write speed starts out at above 3 GB/s, which is sustained until 296 GB have been written to the drive. At this point, the SLC cache is full, and the drive will start flushing SLC back to TLC, which significantly affects write rates. In that space, you're still getting around 600 MB/s, which is faster than any SATA drive.
That's not what the graph shows. Which one is wrong?

Current leaders Samsung 980 Pro and WD SN850 are missing. The comparisons with various others are meaningless.

@W1zzard On the newegg product page for this item it says "
  • With outstanding endurance up to 3,600TB Written, the MP600 PRO's longevity ensures that it will reliably store your data through many years of use."
this is correct? even the samsung 980 pro gen4 only gets 300tbw on 500gb drive and 600gb tbw on 1tb drive...


surely this is an error? 3600 tbw sounds too goo to be true, its like so much more... lol

SN850 reaches its advertised 1 million IOPS according to tweaktown review, 980 pro does not. both are good drives but everyone considers the sn850 king this round.

Sn850 also has a 300GB cache.

There is in fact a picture of it installed in the review and you can tell which slot it is in from that picture.

Really, perhaps you can post that pic as I've gone through the review twice and it's not obvious.

@W1zzard can you include a clear photo of the installed drive with all other components in place, thank you.

I hope the author will write a special comparison piece, Samsung 980 Pro vs WD SN850 vs Corsair mp600 Pro.

Around here the SN850 came out first, and I've been very happy with it. I do like the heatsink Corsair includes though, I don't find the heatsinks from motherboards reliable.

yeah I'd like to see a SN850 and 980 Pro review too. amazon recently had a 980 pro 500gb on sale for 110 bucks lightning sale... almost got it... since i have 5600x and x570 mobo... would have be a fantastic boot drive/programs/ 1-2 games currently playing.... but that 300 tbw... really made me go eh...

Yup this is confusing.

Does it have a 100GB SLC cache or 300GB SLC cache?

And it seems TBW took a hit here also compared to last gen, I think the E16 had high TBW because its basically a modified enterprise controller that was used to be first to market.

Force MP600 500GB = 850TBW
Force MP600 1TB = 1,800TBW
Force MP600 2TB = 3,600TBW

Force MP600 Pro 1TB = 700TBW
Force MP600 Pro 2TB = 1,400TBW

Ridiculous price and it's extra speed barely makes any difference to real world usage. No thanks, I'll stick to Adata or Sabrent.
Apart from QLC garbage and a few shockers like the BX500 nearly any other drive will suffice. I won't be buying PCI 4.0 drives for my X570 build unless they are the same cost as PCI 3.0 drives.

yeah I am waiting for much cheaper prices on it, I think that will happen since doesn't seem to be many people buying these drives at their high prices.

That price is silly. I'm waiting till the silly m.2 prices are on par with current SATA 1TB pricing.

Despite what it looks like, I have a few BX500s in lower end rigs, and they are still way faster than a HDD. I wouldn't buy one today with prices so close for better drives. But if, say there was a 4tb BX500 for $200, I wouldn't hesitate to pick it up.

Obviously into a slot connected to the CPU, does anything else matter?

I double checked with Corsair and it's 700 / 1400. I vaguely remember an older version of the reviewer's guide having incorrect numbers

That's not what the graph shows. Which one is wrong?
I forgot to update the page, it's fixed now

Yes, I'd like to see clearance around it with the cooler installed and proximity to the GPU.

You might want to check out Samsung PM9A1 that is essentially OEM version of 980 Pro with cheaper prices. 2TB is less than 300.

You're aware that's a lawsuit that started before Corsair bought SCUF, right? Also not sure why that's relevant here.

If You transfer lots of big files (eg. working on videos/high res. pics) - the extra seq. speed does matter, however apps usually get loaded to RAM, that's why You don't see much of an improvment in other cases.

I was aiming for SX8200 Pro, but heard of a few faulty ones, that's why I bought KC2500 1TB on sale for ~160$ - I regret nothing. :)
