Corsair MP700 Pro 2TB PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD Review

When it comes to ultra-fast performance, nothing we’ve tested comes close to what this drive has to offer. We knew it would be fast, but wow. The box promised speeds of up to 12400 MB/s Read and 11800 MB/s Write, and we got remarkably close to what was expected, but obviously, your mileage may vary depending on your other system hardware, such as CPU, RAM, or even your OS.

For IOPS, again, absolutely ridiculous numbers, with over 11000 in read and write using SEQ1M, but overall, still by far the largest numbers we’ve seen on a consumer drive in CDM.

Anvil pushed this drive pretty hard, and as you can see, the IOPS are through the roof, with 4K QD16 over 300,000 IOPS. Response times are exceptionally low, no doubt thanks to that fantastic new controller and the large DRAM cache for the lookup tables.

The drive deals with smaller files surprisingly well, and can exceed the fastest PCIe Gen 4 drives from around 128KB files and upwards, and gets to its full speed by the time we move to 2-4MB files, which is great news if you move around thousands of smaller files. As you can see, there was no drop off in performance as the test continued either, meaning that cooler is more than up to the job.

I’ve only just seen my software was set to German for some reason, but the tests are done, and again we can see that Sequential read and writes are superbly fast, with 8857 in read and 9431 in write, with a very low latency of just 0.011 ms. The long and short of it is, you’ll have to Google loading screen tips, as they’ll be flashing up like subliminal messages.

For the more demanding Copy test, again we see killer performance, hitting around 5214.05 MB/s or about half the overall drive performance given the other half with be going to reading the file that is being copied.

Again, IOPS reached extremely high numbers in 16MB, 4K, 4K-64Thrd, and 512B reads and writes, resulting in an incredible score of 15108 points.

This is the first time I’ve run the AJA Video Systems Benchmark, so I don’t have any comparison to make, however, as you can see, it easily reached nearly 10,000 MB/s in both read and write using a simulated 5K Red camera 1GB test file. If you do plan to use this drive for high-resolution, high-refresh-rate video capture, it’s more than up to the job.

Finally, we have the Passmark score of 5458, again, this is the highest I’ve seen, and response and loading times are extremely low, but again, we wouldn’t have expected anything less.

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!
