So what kind of performance can we expect? Well the Max Sequential Read speed is an impressive 3,000MB/S with a write speed of 2,400MB/S (ATTO).
It gives a nice Max Sequential Read of 2,800MB/S and a write of 1,500MB/S (CDM).
This puts it a little ahead of the Samsung SSD 950 Pro with MSR of 2,500MB/S and MSW of 1,500MB/S but just behind the Samsung SSD 960 Pro with MSR of 3,500MB/S and MSW of 2,100MB/S.
The Corsair MP500 comes in three size options; 120GB, 540GB and a 480GB with DRAM Cache of 256MB, 512MB and 1024MB respectively.
In terms of connectivity it is a standard M.2 2280 module so should fit all current supporting motherboards.
All this also comes with a 3 year warranty giving that extra reassurance.
All these factors together make the Corsair MP500 a good competitive option against the Samsung 950 Pro and 960 Pro series SSDs. Where Samsung sadly leaves Corsair behind is with the 960 Pro 1TB and 2TB capacity options
