Corsair launches new and intriguing NVMe models that combine popular and advanced controller with Memories Dense that allow for impressive volumes
American Corsair does not manufacture storage chips itself, does not develop controllers SSD Nor does it participate in the race of dynamic memory makers - yet it has already proven to us that it has the knowledge and ability to deliver agile and cost-effective modern drives with its Force MP510 series (and also the Force MP600 series with PCI-Express 4.0 support). We are now discovering that it can work even when changing identities Memories The flash that serves as the basis for storage - from the old and well-known TLC technology to technology QLC Extremely compact.
The new Force MP400 drives are expected to be based on a Phison controller, similar to Corsair's other NVMe drives, this time an E12S model with full PCI-Express 3.0 × 4 interface support and 8 channels for memories NAND - When using the generationQLC The latest from Micron with a 96-layer three-dimensional structure allows us to get one terabyte volume as an initial default, and an 8 terabyte volume at the top end as a comparison to the peak familiar to us in compact M.2 drives for the domestic market.
Corsair guarantees us maximum continuous read performance of up to 3,480 megabytes per second in read and up to 3,000 megabytes in writing, alongside random performance of up to 610,000IOPS in read and up to 710,000IOPS in writing in high-volume versions thanks to the use of 512 megabytes up to 2G Gigabytes of built-in DDR3L memory from Nanya, with support for Dev SLP technology for minimal consumption in a situation where the drive is not in operation makes the MP400 a product that is very suitable for use in computers as well Mobile, Especially in terabytes with a maximum consumption expected in an operation of only 4 watts (with reduced random performance compared to its brother, it is worth noting).
Despite relying on storage chips in technology that is perceived as insufficiently reliable in the long run or under increased workloads, inCorsair Feel comfortable declaring a relatively high MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) figure of 1.8 million hours and a full five-year warranty in all volumes - albeit under a relatively modest writing volume of about 11 percent of the drive volume each day And day, which is still supposed to provide the vast majority of the simple home users to whom the product is aimed.
This interesting combination will be offered to consumers for a suggested retail price of $ 130 for one terabyte, $ 260 for 2 terabyte, $ 590 for 4 terabyte and $ 1,350 for a terrific $ 8 terabyte - prices that can be quite competitive in the medium term Of the worldNVMe In both base volumes, and will undoubtedly increase competitiveness in the maximum volumes of 4TB and 8TB, which we have rarely encountered so far.
You can also find a number of stores and chains in Israel that offer the MP400 models for sale - for an initial cost of NIS 635 for a basic terabyte volume, NIS 1,260 for a 2 terabyte volume, NIS 2,880 for a 4 terabyte volume and more than NIS 6,700 for The few brave ones who decide to stock up on a maximum of 8 terabytes in such a small package. A reasonable starting point that is better than most models capable of reaching speeds of more than 3,000 megabytes per second in the local landscape, although we still hope to see a gradual improvement in favor of increased viability even compared to online purchases from abroad.
Reviews for the online series validate the company's statements about capabilities and efficiencies and paint an optimistic picture for the drives - and we can only hope that chips in technology QLC Will continue to surprise us for good in a similar way.
