The Phison E27T Controller, Faster Transfers And Less Power
The Corsair MP600 Elite series offers you PCIe 4.0 performance for less than $0.10/GB, the 1TB should cost $95 and the 2TB would be $170; you can drop that price by an additional $5 if you skip the heatsink. As the price suggests, the MP600 Elite does not have a DRAM cache and from TechPowerUp’s testing the SLC cache is a rather small 48 GB on the 2TB model. That said, when completely filling the 2TB drive they saw an average transfer speed of 1.4 GB/s.
When you are not torture testing it, you should see sequential reads just over 7000MB/s and reads of around 6500MB/s. That gives it a performance advantage over many of the other PCIe 4.0 drives on the market. You can check out the full review here for more details on the performance of the MP600 Elite series.
The Corsair MP600 Elite PCIe Gen 4 SSD features the new Phison E27T controller, which provides improved performance and lower power consumption than its predecessor. Additionally, it comes with a preinstalled heatsink and uses Toshiba's latest 163-layer TLC NAND flash.
