Corsair Teases First PCIe 5.0 SSD With 10,000MB/s of Bandwidth

Corsair is the first PCIe 5.0 SSD Corsair MP700 (opens in new tab)The Corsair MP700 Gen 5 PCIe x4 NVMe 2.0 M.2 SSD features an incredible 10,000 MB/s sequential read speed and 9,500 MB/s sequential write speed. The company advertises the drive as AM5 ready, but that doesn’t stop Intel Alder Lake (and upcoming Raptor Lake) users from benefiting as well.

The MP700 is 40% faster in both sequential read and write speeds than Corsair’s fastest PCIe Gen 4 drive, the MP600 Pro XT. This may be due to the higher bandwidth of PCIe 5.0. PCIe 5.0 enables up to 15.8 GB/s in the M.2 form factor.

The MP700 basically signals that PCIe 5.0 drives are likely to reach consumers this year, not just from Corsair, but from other drive makers as well. Intel had his PCIe 5.0 ready for Alder Lake last year, but the manufacturer wasn’t ready to launch PCIe 5.0 drives when Alder Lake was released.
