CORSAIR Launches MP700, Its First PCIe Gen 5 M.2 SSD

CORSAIR, a leading provider of enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, has announced the release of its first PCIe Gen 5 M.2 SSD, the MP700. With a capacity of up to 2 TB, the MP700 sets a new standard for next-generation storage, boasting sequential read and write performance of up to 10,000 MB/sec each, which is up to 40% faster than even the best PCIe 4.0 SSDs available today.

In addition to its impressive sequential throughput, the MP700's random read and write performance of up to 1.5 million read and 1.7 million write input/output operations per second (IOPS) puts it ahead of the best PCIe Gen 4 drives. The MP700 is backward compatible with PCIe 4.0 motherboards, making it a long-lasting upgrade.

The MP700 is easy to install into desktop motherboards, thanks to its industry-standard M.2 2280 form-factor. To achieve optimal performance, the MP700 requires additional cooling, which can be achieved by using the motherboard's integrated M.2 cooling system or an aftermarket M.2 SSD cooler such as the CORSAIR Hydro X Series XM2 Water Block.

The MP700 is supported by free CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software, which enables convenient features such as secure erase and firmware updates directly from your desktop. The MP700 comes with a five-year warranty for extended peace of mind, and it takes full advantage of PCIe Gen 5 technology to set a new standard for M.2 performance.

The CORSAIR MP700 PCIe Gen 5 x4 NVMe M.2 SSD is available immediately from the CORSAIR webstore and the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors. The MP700 is backed by a five-year warranty, alongside the CORSAIR worldwide customer service and technical support network. For more information, visit the product page.
