Corsair’s first foray into a PCIe 5.0 SSD is fast and cheap – a winning combination

The launch of Corsair’s first PCIe 5.0 SSD was long overdue, with concerns that the company’s initial move to Gen 5 drives would prove prohibitively expensive. But fortunately, Corsair seems to have avoided costly pitfalls. In fact, this new drive may well be the best SSD right now.

As reported by PC worldThe MP700 is now available in full-sized M.2 2280 form factor. Previously claimed by Corsair that PCIe 5.0 can achieve read and write speeds of 10 GB/s in a 2 TB drive, while its smaller drive has read and write speeds of 9.5 GB/s and 8.5 GB/s respectively. What’s more, both versions are backwards compatible with M.2 Gen 4 and Gen 3 slots, in case your PC isn’t yet up to speed.
