Extremely competitive: Corsair launches upgraded NVMe drives

The new generation Phison E12 controller combined with Toshiba's BiCS chips enable the American company to ensure Great at a price that was considered imaginary until recently

Are we approaching the day when the most advanced SSD drives on the market can be purchased at a low cost of one per gigabyte of storage? It certainly looks so thanks to the products like Corsair's new Force MP510, Designed to be one of the platform products E12 products that are widely available in stores.

The Taiwanese Phison gained popularity quickly thanks to highly accessible and convenient development platforms that enabled almost every company in the market to create a drive Of their own with minimal investment and effort - and having done so successfully in cutting more budget models with its popular E8 controller, a contributor of drives also comes Speed ​​interfaces in the M.2 interface and full utilization of NVMe technology to receive similar treatment, with promises for sequential performance of over 3 GB per second and Which are as high as 5 and even more than they can deliver SATA drives at their peak.

One new drive out of many that will offer similar advanced capabilities in the coming months - and thanks to Phison

The MP510 drives will be offered in the M.2 format only, as are all the NVMe drives, and in volumes between 240GB and 1,960GB with SK Hynix dedicated cache, 5-year warranty and 3D BiCS3 technology 256 gigabytes per "floor" in chipset. Read speeds will reach up to 3,480 megabytes per second, write speeds up to 3,000 megabytes per second - and QD32 performance with random 4KB files up to 610,000IOPS in read to 570,000IOPS in write - all together with high durability of 90 write and delete Drive daily and daily for five years under warranty.

Support for 2 writing volumes higher than those for SATA budget drives demonstrates that the pessimistic predictions for TLC technology were overblown - the resulting reliability should certainly suffice for the vast majority of consumers

We met the huge performance potential of NVMe drives already a few years ago, so there are no big surprises here - but combining the capabilities together with recommended prices of 66 dollars for 240GB's , 125 for $ 480GB and $ 236 only for 960GB and 475 for 1,920GB is quite surprising in this case: prices are between 25 and 27 cents per gigabyte of As a default, when from here it can only continue to decline gradually as the availability and competitiveness will increase.

Initial reviews for the MP510 confirm competitive performance in relation to models such as the 970 EVO - which is even more significant today than the recommended prices from Corsair

The MP960's 510GB model is the most lucrative, it seems, with the highest performance compared to its siblings and cost-to-volume ratio - and when it comes to the addition of about $ 70 compared to prominent SATA drives of similar volume, which gives Sequential and random performance up to 5, it is certainly possible to claim a positive and promising change in the V- Of all kinds.


We've already met in my box Faster than new And we met drives Are a little more expensive, but its addition and similar to it are based on E12 to the market in the coming months is likely to revolutionize, making their choice more logical and demanding than ever - not just for extreme performance enthusiasts, but for average home users as well.

  1. The paper is indeed impressive data, especially when it comes to random read and write speeds of small files, 610,000 IOPS 570,000 \ IOPS. However, comparison tests already done by Tom's Hardware present a far less exciting picture. In fact, despite the potential of the new chip generation integrated into this drive (Generation 4), it is rated in the lower third compared to the current drive generation. These may be childhood diseases that will have a significant improvement. In firmware updates, but that is not the case at the moment.

    1. The main problem is how companies have become accustomed to showing us maximum random data in 32 or 64 parallel channels, which usually does not represent the practical reality and certainly does not give the full picture. If you look at the speeds obtained in the 4K-64THRD test on the AS-SSD in the article, you will see that the drive is actually approaching and even passing these statements ..
