Corsair Accidently Reveals 10GB/s MP700 PCIe 5.0 Solid State Drive

It looks like Corsair has published a video by accident on their upcoming MP700 PCI-Express 5.0 NVMe solid state drive. The video was first spotted by Overclock3D and was soon made private. They were however able to get information and some screenshots of the drive before it was taken private.

Here is what the decription of the video said…

Experience the performance of PCIe Gen5 storage in your system, with up to 10,000MB/sec sequential read and 9,500MB/sec sequential write speeds for amazingly fast save, boot, and load times.

The high-bandwidth NVMe 2.0 interface and high-density 3D TLC NAND flash memory offer outstanding performance and longevity. Slot the MP700 directly into your motherboard thanks to its M.2 2280 form-factor, while a stylish aluminum heatsink helps manage temperatures and reduce throttling. Microsoft DirectStorage enables unprecedented load times when playing compatible games.

Looking at the shot of the drive we can see that it is using a large actively-cooled heatsink. This solution actually looks very similar to many of the reference solutions we saw on many Phison E26-based drives at CES 2023. So we can assume that this the controller that Cosair will be making use of here. The drive will make use of the NVMe 2.0 protocol and will use high-density 3D TLC NAND memory.

As far as performance goes Corsair provided a graph that shows the MP700 will reach speeds of 10 GB/s read and 9 GB/s write. Unfortunately there is no other performance information or mention of the price. We can expect Corsair to officially announce this product very soon!
