Corsair Force MP500 M.2 SSD

Corsair Force MP500 Series M.2 SSD


Just before Christmas Corsair launched its new M.2 SSD Series the MP500 offering access to your files, games and applications up to 4x faster than the SATA3 6gbps SSD.

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
