CORSAIR releases MP600 MICRO NVMe M.2 2242 SSD

Corsair, a renowned American company, recently announced the launch of a new PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD model, the “MP600 MICRO,” a rare M.2 2242 specification product in the retail market. Earlier in April, Corsair had introduced the MP600 Mini and MP600 Core XT, corresponding to the M.2 2230 and M.2 2280 specifications, respectively. This expansion further diversifies Corsair’s MP600 series of PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD product lines, offering a broader range of storage upgrade options for various devices.

While most motherboards support the M.2 2242 specification SSDs, they are seldom seen in the retail market, predominantly appearing in the OEM market for compact, small-form-factor devices. The MP600 MICRO, currently available in a 1TB capacity, utilizes 3D TLC NAND flash memory. It boasts sequential read and write speeds of 5100 MB/s and 4300 MB/s, respectively, with 4K random read/write speeds of 600K IOPS and 890K IOPS. It has a total bytes written (TBW) rating of 600 and an average power consumption of 4.3W.

Backward compatible with the PCIe 3.0 standard, the MP600 MICRO, like other Corsair SSDs, is supported by the free CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software. Priced at $79.99, it comes with a five-year warranty. For those in need of an M.2 2242 specification SSD, Corsair’s latest offering is certainly worth considering.
