CORSAIR launches the MP600 MINI and the MP600 CORE XT PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs
CORSAIR has announced the launch of two new PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSDs: the MP600 Mini and MP600 Core XT. The MP600 Mini features an ultra-compact form factor, adhering to the M.2 2230 standard, offering a highly competitive product in terms of price and performance. It presents a new storage upgrade option for numerous devices.
CORSAIR states that the MP600 Mini brings their high-performance SSD capabilities to the smallest M.2 form factor, making it compatible with popular handheld gaming devices such as Valve’s Steam Deck or space-constrained, thin devices like Microsoft Surface Pro 8/9. It serves as an ideal performance and storage upgrade for small-scale devices. The MP600 Mini offers a 1TB capacity, utilizing 3D TLC NAND flash memory, with sequential read and write speeds of 4800 MB/s and 4800 MB/s, respectively. Its 4K random read/write performance reaches 850K IOPS and 1.1M IOPS, with a TBW of 600.
The MP600 Core XT adopts the industry-standard M.2 2280 form factor, currently the most prevalent size. It is available in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities, employing 3D QLC NAND flash memory. The maximum sequential read and write speeds are 5000 MB/s and 4400 MB/s, respectively, with a maximum TBW of 900, offering performance ten times greater than conventional SATA SSDs.
Both the MP600 Mini and MP600 Core XT are backward compatible with the PCIe 3.0 standard and are supported by the complimentary CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software, like other CORSAIR SSDs. The MP600 Mini 1TB is priced at $109.99, while the MP600 Core XT’s 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB variants are priced at $59.99, $114.99, and $284.99, respectively, all with a five-year warranty.
