The CORSAIR Force MP510 NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD promises extreme storage performance with blazing fast speeds. Today I’m taking the 960GB model for a spin on my test bench.

Corsair Force MP510

Corsair really takes on the market with the MP510. Not only does the drive promise blasting fast speeds of over 3GB/s, it also does so at a low price. The drive utilises the new Phison E12 controller which is a second generation high-end NVMe controller. Corsair paired the E12 with Toshiba’s 64-layer 3D TLC NAND. A great combination and the reason why the drive delivers as well as it does for such a low price.

The drive series is a PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 NVMe based in a 2280 M.2 form factor. The MP510 also supports AES 256-bit encryption for those who need more protection for their data.

Drive Performance

The performance is one of the reasons that people will go for this drive. The Corsair Force MP510 delivers up to 3480MB/s when reading and 3000MB/s when writing sequential data. The random performance is at least as impressive with 470K IOPS when writing and 610K IOPS when reading with a queue depth of 32.

Endurance and Warranty

Endurance is at least as important as performance, and Corsair’s MP510 has you covered on this side too. The drive features a TBW rating of 1700 and a mean time before failure rating or 1.8 million hours. Corsair also backs the drive with a great 5-year warranty.
