It has been a very exciting year for high speed storage, with different manufacturers releasing their models of SSD (Crucial, Intel and Gigabyte). Yesterday (16 October), Corsair also announced its latest Force series MP510 PCIe NVMe SSDs to the public.
…the MP510 leaves traditional SATA 6Gbps and even previous generation M.2 SSDs in the dust.
The MP510 SSDs will be available in four sizes, including 240 GB, 480 GB, 960 GB and 1920 GB. All models will be using the M.2 2280 form factor, which should keep the drives compact. The SSDs will be transferring data though its PCIe Gen 3 x4 interface. It supports the NVMe protocol.
The MP510 SSDs are using the new Phison PS5012-E12 NVMe controller, along with Toshiba’s 64-layer 3D TLC NAND flash. According to Corsair, the drives can deliver sequential read performance at about 3480 MB/s and write at up to 3000 MB/s. The MP500, previous generation SSD from Corsair, only does read at “only” 3000 MB/s and write at around 2300 MB/s.
The SSDs are backed by a 5-year warranty. They should be available to purchase worldwide now. You can visit the local or online resellers for pricing.
