Not long ago, Corsair shared a teaser video of their first PCIe 5.0 SSD, the MP700. Unfortunately, the video was quickly deleted… But not enough, our colleagues at Overclock3D had time to recover some information.
MP700: a teaser remained… Temporarily !
From what we can see, the SSD in question adopts a rather classic M.2 2280 format for this type of storage. Nevertheless, it is distinguished by the use of a rather massive aluminum heatsink. Moreover, on the latter, we find a small fan used to cool the whole! A common point between the models of ADATA and Galax !
Moreover, before being deleted, the description of the video gave some information about the performances. Thus, in sequential read/write, this model displays 10 GB/s in reading against 9.5 GB/s in writing. Performances are down compared to the ADATA and Galax models mentioned previously. Nevertheless, these performances do not change compared to the figures revealed last last August.
We also learn that this model uses the NVMe 2.0 protocol and that it is equipped with a TLC memory chip.
Now, all that remains is to see when Corsair intends to launch its PCIe 5.0 SSD and above all, at what price!
