A brand new video that includes the Corsair MP700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe 2.0 SSD burst onto the agency’s official YouTube channel just a few hours in the past, however earlier than anybody might obtain and put it aside for posterity, it vanished. Fortunately, the workforce at OC3D captured a number of the info shared earlier than the video was up to date to ‘non-public’ standing.
We reported on the first particulars of the Corsair MP700 again in August 2022, optimistically trying ahead to it turning into obtainable later that 12 months. Now we’re firmly into 2023 and nonetheless ready to enter this new period of storage efficiency.
A number of the touted specs of the Corsair MP700 are as follows:
- As much as 10,000 MB/s sequential learn speeds
- As much as 9,500 MB/s sequential write speeds
- It’s as much as 40% quicker than the present MP600 Professional XT PCIe Gen 4 SSD
- Makes use of high-bandwidth NVMe 2.0 interface
- Employs high-density 3D TLC NAND flash
- Makes use of the Phison E26 controller
- Get pleasure from full potential with AMD AM5, and a few Intel 600 and 700 sequence chipset motherboards (verify product
We had one top-down picture of the Corsair MP700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe 2.0 SSD beforehand, and because of the video gaffe, we now have a a lot clearer view of what’s anticipated to be the transport product. We will see that Corsair is just rebadging the Phison reference design for this new storage product. We aren’t positive whether or not that’s the reason Corsair is so shy about it, however the photos of a Phison reference mannequin, the CFD Gaming PCIe 5 SSD, and a Patriot Reminiscence PCie 5 SSD we noticed at CES 2023 look equivalent.
The photographs present that this PCIe 5 M.2 SSD design has a way more substantial cooling answer than earlier generations might need required. The thumb-thick storage stick incorporates a black aluminum finned heatsink with a tiny lively fan. Based on the Corsair blurb accompanying the expunged video, this heatsink “helps handle temperatures and scale back throttling.” So, no guarantees are made about eliminating throttling…
We nonetheless don’t have pricing or a definitive launch date for the MP700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe 2.0 SSD, however it’s anticipated to debut someday throughout Q2 this 12 months. When it will definitely arrives, we’re fairly positive the Corsair MP700 goes to be a contender for our Greatest SSDs of 2023 characteristic, which we at all times try to maintain up to date.
