Corsair MP700 Pro 2TB PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD Review

A Closer Look

It’s a fairly unassuming thing really, with a carbon black finish, and no RGB or bright writing, it’s just very neat and tidy.

but make no mistake, relative to the size of an M.2 drive, this heatsink is pretty thick, with a tower of chunky aluminium fins and air channels running the entire length of the drive.

While on the other end, there’s a tiny active fan that can push air through the drive, ensuring heat is very quickly dissipated, and your performance is unaffected.

The drive uses the latest PCIe Gen5 x4 standards, so will largely be compatible with most modern high-end motherboards and PCIe expansion cards. With NVMe 2.0, the read and write speeds can easily be more than 10,000 MB/s, so it’s anything but slow.

Corsair is using 512GB High-Density 3D TLC NAND memory chips, and as you can see, this drive has two of them on this side, and two on the reverse, giving us our 2TB total. It’s also powered by the latest Phison E26 controller, their first PCIe 5.0 controller. Finally, it also features 4 GB of Hynix LPDDR4-4266 DRAM.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
