Corsair Officially Launches NX500 PCIe SSDs
Ashley Allen / 7 months ago
Corsair is finally launching its Neutron NX500 Series NVMe PCIe SSDs. Curiously, the SSDs quietly turned up on sale at Newegg last month without any formal launch. A day later, Newegg removed the listings. Corsair, though, is now ready to officially unveil the PCIe SSDs. The drives come in 400GB and 800GB capacities, with a 1.6TB model to follow very soon.
