Memory (DDR4/DDR5) and Storage (SSD/NVMe) 364 Page 1 of 15 Published by



Introducing the Corsair MP600 Elite, a cost-effective NVMe SSD that operates on the PCIe Gen 4.0 interface. This swift NVMe SSD is characterized by its DRAM-less architecture and boasts a transfer rate of 7000 MB/sec. The 2 TB variant is notably economical, priced at 10 cents per GB. A significant update in this model is its newly designed heatsink, which not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also performs efficiently in heat dissipation. The new NVMe M.2 SSD has PCI-Express 4.0 (x4) connectivity, which is faster than last gen models. The capacity lineup consists of three models with differing capacities: 2TB, and 4TB. As well as being capable of sequential reading and writing speeds of up to 7,000 megabytes per second (MB/s), as well as random reading and writing speeds of up to 6,800 megabytes per second, 3D TLC NAND also has random reading and writing capabilities of up to 1.000,000 IOPS and PCI-Express 4.0 support for high-speed versions of the technology. SSDs of the highest potential level of performance (X4) When random access is used, the processing speed is extremely high. The product is also fitted with a large heat sink, which allows for even greater optimization of cooling performance. In addition to providing exceptional performance and long-term durability, the MP600 PRO Elite is made with high-density 3D TLC NAND, which provides up to 1,200 TB Written for the tested 2TB model and 600 TBW for the 1 TB model, respectively. A projected mean time between failure (MTBF) of 1.5million hours is predicted for the product, which is covered by a five-year warranty. The following is a quick rundown of the new SKU (product code) numbers and prices.
