In this article we will see the review of the Corsair MP600 a truly amazing NVMe. We didn’t think that Corsair would be able to improve even more in the world of SSDs so quickly and instead managed to improve even further and did it big time!
We started this review by saying that an already very performing SSD has been improved but if someone doesn’t know what we’re talking about here is the review of the first Corsair HDD, the MP600 CORE M.2.
The big difference isn’t in performancein fact, even if improved, they fail to steal the show from the big news that resides in the infrastructure.
Where the first Hard Disk mounts a heatsink which preserves the temperatures in an optimal way but at the same time prevents theml Mounting in laptops, laptops or specific configurations.
Thanks to this new form factor and the lack of such a bulky heatsink, the installation possibilities are far superiorthe. This does not mean that the temperatures are still optimal.
What does this SSD offer? | Corsair MP600 GS review
We are facing an SSD with monstrous performance that reaches up to 4800MB/s read and 4500MB/s write. All this is possible thanks to the Phison PS5018-E21T Controller a respectable device obviously made following the PCIe Gen4 x4 standards.
The Phison PS5021-E21T is a quad-channel DRAMless controller that supports a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface, NVMe 1.4 protocol, and various types of 3D TLC and 3D QLC NAND flash memory with a Toggle 4.0 or ONFi 4.2 interface.
Although it has been presented as an entry level controller, it is obvious that its performance is very high.
The average indicated consumption is 5.3W.
Here are our tests | Corsair MP600 GS review
Our tests were carried out with the following configuration:
Let’s start from the first test for this Corsair MP600 review, same benchmarks, two different tests. Are we in line with what has been declared? While we’re slightly subdued with the value inherent in writing, we’re pretty much in line with where it’s reading, where we’re even above Corsair’s claims.
With 1 GiB files it scored 4940MB/s in reading and 4799MHz in writing.
Instead in the more demanding 5 GiB test we find even a higher value, 4954 MB/s in reading and always 4811MHz in writing.
But let’s move on to the famous Atto benchmark. In which we can observe the behavior with different file types, and its stability. In which we can observe the behavior with different file types, and its stability.
Also in this test it is possible to see that the overall quality is very high. The Corsair MP600 GS defends itself well right away even in tests with smaller files, which notoriously remain more demanding.
Of course, even with larger files, it all becomes apparent again.
Finally, for the sake of completeness, we can also observe an excellent behavior with 1 Gb files with the AS SSD Benchmark software.
The random sequential read and write test without using the cache returned excellent values, nothing to complain about.
Who should buy this SSD?
In conclusion we are faced with a small SSD that if far from the performance offered by the current generation PCIe 4.0 x4 it manages to offer compactness and above all it manages to give excellent results containing prices.
If you are looking for the best SSD, the fastest, on the market, this Corsair MP600 GS is certainly not for you. But if, on the contrary, you are looking for an excellent SSD with very good performance that can make you spend relatively little, you must have no doubts. The quality is there and the speed too, and if you plan to replace the SSD of your mini PC or laptop with this SSD you won’t have any size problems.
The savings are even more marked in the 2 TB version which costs only 139.99 euros, if instead you are satisfied with just one Therabyte the price drops to 74.99 euros on the Corsair official website.
- Excellent value for money
- Small and comfortable
- Excellent materials
- It’s not the fastest
- Controller Phison entry level
