Corsair’s latest flagship PCIe Gen 4 SDD is the MP600 Pro XT. Offered in two varieties, one with a traditional SSD heatsink, while the other – the MP600 Pro XT Hydro X Edition – comes with a copper interior water block. The drives use a Phison PS5018-E18 controller together with Micron’s 176-Layer 3D TLC NAND, Micron’s fastest 3D TLC flash to date.
At launch the MP600 Pro XT is available in three capacities; 1TB, 2TB (the drive we are looking at) and the flagship 4TB. The Hydro X Edition range does without the 1TB model.
The MP600 Pro XT uses a PS5018-E18 8-channel controller teamed with Micron B47R, 176-layer 3D TLC NAND. The previous MP600 Pro drive also used the E18 controller but with 96-layer Micron NAND. Sequential performance figures for the MP600 Pro XT are quoted at up to 7,100MB/s for reads across the range while Sequential writes are rated at up to 5,800MB/s for the 1TB drive and up to 6,800MB/s for the 1TB and 2TB models.
As for random 4K performance, the 1TB drive is rated at up to 900,000 IOPS for reads with the 1 and 2TB drives rated at up to 1m IOPS. Random writes are up to 1.2M IOPS across the three drives. Endurance figures for the range are quoted are; 700TB for the 1TB drive, 1,400TB for the 2TB drive and 3,000TB for the 4TB drive. Corsair back the MP600 Pro XT and Hydro X with a 5-year warranty.
