Corsair’s new MP600 Mini SSD aims to be the perfect Steam Deck upgrade

Corsair is unveiling two new PCIe 4 SSDs today, the MP600 Mini with its ultra-compact M.2 2230 form factor, and the MP600 Core XT, a more traditional M.2 2280 SSD. 

The MP600 Mini stands out with its M.2 2230 form factor, measuring in at 22mm x 30mm. This is precisely the sort of SSD you would want to use when upgrading a portable handheld gaming system like Valve's Steam Deck. The SSD is capable of PCIe Gen 4 performance of up to 4,800MB/s read/write speeds. Performance will degrade when using a PCIe Gen 3 interface.

The MP600 Core XT is a full-sized M.2 2280 SSD, available in 1TB, 2TB and 4TB capacities. The SSD uses 3D QLC NAND Flash to offer competitive performance at a lower price. This particular drive is capable of PCIe Gen 3 speeds of up to 5,000MB/s reads and 4,400MB/s writes, making it around 10x faster than a SATA SSD.

The Corsair MP600 Mini is priced at £114.99 for 1TB. The Corsair MP600 Core XT starts at £64.99 for the 1TB model, £119.99 for the 2TB model and £289.99 for the 4TB model.
