Corsair MP700 Pro 2TB PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD Review

The Corsair MP700 Pro is pretty special, as not only is it the fastest SSD Corsair has ever released, but it’s also set to be the fastest we’ve ever reviewed, as it’s our very first PCIe Gen 5.0 drive! Featuring blistering read and write speeds of up to 10,000 MB/s and a choice of 1TB or 2TB capacities, it can more than meet the demands of a high-end PC user. The older MP600 Pro XT maxed out at around 7100 MB/s, so this is a pretty significant upgrade in terms of speed. However, this even more extreme “Pro” version adds more speed, a big cooler, and promises to exceed that performance by quite a significant margin.

Even cooler than the super-speed of this drive is that we have the even more premium Pro version. The “standard” version comes with just the M.2 drive ready to drop into your motherboard. However, this Pro version comes with a SATA-powered NMVe heatsink and fan combo to ensure the drive can operate at its optimum efficiency and higher-rated read and write speeds. While you may not think that a cooler is needed, we know that these flagship drives can easily hit 100c+ if left without additional cooling, which would result in a drop in performance, so a big cooler is pretty much essential to keep those read-and-write speeds at their peak.

Features

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!
