Possible prices for the new Corsair MP600 PCIe Gen 4 M.2 SSD storage have been published via the French publication Cowcotland revealing that Corsair will be charging a premium for its new PCIe gen 4.0 storage when compared to existing drives that use the previous PCIe 3.0 generation connection.
The latest storage from Corsair was launched during Computex 2019 and has been created to take advantage of the PCI-Express 4.0 x4 bus (64 Gbps) on the upcoming AMD “Valhalla” desktop platform.
The Corsair MP600 PCIe Gen 4 M.2 SSD storage is capable of providing users with sequential read speeds of up to 4,950 MB/s.
For details revealed by Cowcotland it is possible that the 1TB MP600 version will be priced at €249 or €0.24 per GB, while the 2TB version will be priced at €449 or an equivalent €0.22 per GB. The Tech Power Up website explains a little more about the pricing.
“To put these prices into perspective, the 960 GB variant of Corsair’s current flagship SSD, the MP510, is priced at 160€, and its 1920 GB variant at 320€. Stateside, the Intel 660p 1 TB PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 NVMe drive is priced at $99.99 on Newegg, although it isn’t generally counted as a premium SSD. Its 2 TB variant is priced at $192 on the same site. Nearly all client-segment PCIe gen 4.0 SSDs launched so far are built around the new Phison PS5016-E16 controller.”
