The sequential read speed of SSD Corsair Force MP500 reaches 3000 MB/s
ASRock has introduced its first line of SSD size M. 2. A new series called Force MP500, touted as high speed, and this is not surprising: while this is the only line of Corsair SSD that uses the PCI Express interface.
The series includes three models with a volume of 120, 240 and 480 GB. They use memory MLC NAND and controller Phison PS5007-E7 c Protocol support NVMe and PCI Express 3.0 x4. The Junior model has a 256MB DDR3 buffer memory, the average models of such memory 512 MB, older 1 GB.
Interestingly, for all three models claimed the same speed limits: 3000 MB/s sequential read and 2,400 MB/s for sequential writes. If it is based on the data obtained in the ATTO Disk Benchmark application. CrystalDiskMark gives a slightly different picture: up to 2800 MB/s sequential reads and up to 1,500 MB/s sequential writes.
Performance models with capacity of 240 and 480 GB with read and write random access blocks of 4 KB — 250 000 and 210 000 IOPS respectively. The results of the Junior model is more modest: to 150 000 and 90 000 random read and write random access blocks of 4 KB respectively.
Corsair specifies only the resource models with capacity of 240 and 480 GB, it is 698 and 349 of TBW, respectively.
The model is already available for purchase on the official website of Corsair. The cost of the Junior model is $125, average — $190, senior — $365.
