AMD has kicked off the transition to PCI Express 4.0 in the consumer PC market and Corsair is one of the first to announce their drive, with the new MP600 M.2 NVMe SSD, based on a Phison's PCIe 4.0-capable NVMe controller.
Launching in July alongside AMD's new Ryzen 3000 series processors and their X570 chipset, the new SSD will be capable of up to 4950MB/s for sequential reads and 4250MB/s for sequential writes, both significant increases over any consumer SSD currently available, such as the MP510 it will be replacing. Corsair hasn't announced what specific capacities will be availabl.
The MP600 includes a simple black heatsink over the M.2 module.
Pricing for the MP600 has not yet been announced. The warranty will be the usual 5 years, but write endurance has not been announced. The drive will be also backwards-compatible with existing PCIe 3.0 systems.
