We also tried the Corsair PCIe 4.0 SSD – will we be more satisfied now than after the previous tests?
The two PCIe 4.0 interface SSDs we’ve tested so far – the ADATA XPG Gammix S50 Lite and the Patriot Viper VP4100 – didn’t convince us that it would be worth replacing our own home system solely because of the next-generation interface. But the tests won’t stop, of course, and PCIe 4.0 is still trying to conquer: this time we had the good fortune to try out the Corsair racer. The manufacturer’s last model from us wasn’t a bad product, so we were curious to see what they rolled on the PCIe 4 front, and we were particularly pleased to get the MP600 Pro, not the Core model with the more modest specifications. In our test lab, the version with a capacity of 1 TB was honored, but there is also a 2 TB version, and it is even planned that the 4 TB model will be on the market soon.
The data storage came to us in the usual black-and-yellow color box, inside which the SSD itself sits in a sponge. The drive has a standard size of M.2-2280, already in terms of floor space, but is above average in height and weight, thanks to the large heat sink.
Needless to say, this component will help keep the 96-layer Micron TLC NAND memory chips, the Phison PS5018-E18 controller, and 1GB of DRAM cool, but when choosing the rest of your computer’s hardware, you’ll need to make sure that such a large rib it fits under a VGA, and it’s not worth putting ourselves at an extra cost for a motherboard that also has an SSD cooler, as we won’t need that.
The drive supports NVMe protocol version 1.4 and, like the more expensive solutions, has SLC cache, but 256-bit AES encryption and a five-year manufacturer’s warranty are also features that make it worth paying a higher purchase price for a cheaper one. model.
