Corsair Video Teases MP700 PCIe 5.0 SSD, Then Disappears

A new video featuring the Corsair MP700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe 2.0 SSD burst onto the company’s official YouTube channel a few hours ago, but it disappeared before anyone could download it and save it for posterity. Thankfully OC3D We have captured some of the information shared before the video was updated to “Private” status.

We reported the first details of the Corsair MP700 in August 2022, but we’re optimistically expecting it to launch later in the year. Now we are firmly in 2023 and we are still waiting for storage to enter this new era of his performance.

Here are some of the advertised specs of the Corsair MP700:

  • Sequential read speeds up to 10,000 MB/s
  • Sequential write speeds up to 9,500 MB/s
  • Up to 40% faster than the current MP600 Pro XT PCIe Gen 4 SSD
  • Uses high-bandwidth NVMe 2.0 interface
  • Adopts high-density 3D TLC NAND flash
  • Uses Phison E26 controller
  • Enjoy full potential with AMD AM5, and select Intel 600 and 700 series chipset motherboards (check products).

Previously, we had one top-down image of the Corsair MP700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe 2.0 SSD, but thanks to a gaffe in the video, we now have a clearer picture of what we expect to ship and what to expect. It turns out that Corsair just modified his Phison reference design for this new storage product. I’m not sure if that’s why Corsair is shy, but the photos we saw at CES 2023 of the Phison reference model, the CFD Gaming PCIe 5 SSD, and the Patriot Memory PCIe 5 SSD look the same.

Photos show that this PCIe 5 M.2 SSD design features a much more substantial cooling solution than previous generations may have required. The thumb-sized storage stick features a black aluminum finned heatsink with a small active fan. According to a Corsair blurb that accompanied the now-deleted video, the heatsink “helps manage temperatures and reduce throttling.” So no promises to eliminate throttling…
