Phenomenal PCIe Gen5 SSD performance – CORSAIR launches MP700 PRO PCIe 5.0 x4 M.2 SSDs: MP700 PRO 1

MILPITAS, CA, November 14th, 2023 – CORSAIR® (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced the launch of the MP700 PRO, its fastest PCIe Gen5 M.2 SSD to date. Available in capacities up to 4TB, with three different cooling options, the MP700 PRO sets a new standard for next-generation storage, with sequential read and write performance reaching a phenomenal 12,400MB/sec and 11,800MB/sec respectively*—that's up to 75% faster than PCIe 4.0 SSDs.

MP700 PRO 2

On top of the impressive sequential throughput, the random read and write performance of up to 1.5 million read and 1.6 million write input/output operations per second (IOPS) put the MP700 PRO way ahead of the best PCIe Gen 4 drives. The MP700 PRO is backward compatible with PCIe 4.0 motherboards**, making this an upgrade that will last you for years to come. Native support for Microsoft® DirectStorage ensures that you’ll get the most from the latest games, while copying files in Windows and loading applications has never felt so fast.

MP700 PRO 3

Utilizing the industry-standard M.2 2280 form-factor, the MP700 PRO installs easily into desktop motherboards for great all-around compatibility. To achieve its optimal performance, the MP700 PRO requires additional cooling, most commonly using the integrated M.2 cooling provided by the user's motherboard. For those that require a more advanced cooling, the MP700 PRO is available with a stylish fully-assembled Air Cooler, which ensures that the drive is kept cool during operation and performs optimally.

MP700 PRO 4

Alternatively, the MP700 PRO Hydro X Series version ships with a pre-assembled water block that fits easily into your custom cooling loop, delivering top-of-the-line cooling and performance while virtually eliminating throughput throttling. This water block is compatible with industry standard 1/4" fittings and is built to the exacting standards that you'd expect from CORSAIR custom cooling hardware.

MP700 PRO 5

Like all CORSAIR SSDs, the MP700 PRO is supported by free CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software, enabling convenient features such as secure erase and firmware updates directly from your desktop. With a five-year warranty for extended peace of mind that your storage will remain fast and reliable, the MP700 takes full advantage of PCIe Gen5 technology to set a new standard for M.2 performance.

*Performance and endurance vary by capacity.
 **Lower performance on PCIe Gen3 and Gen4 setups.
