Corsair has just announced the launch of its latest addition to the highly successful MP600 Series NVMe SSDs, the MP600 MINI and MP600 CORE XT. The MP600 MINI measures a mere 30 mm long making it compatible with small handheld gaming devices like the Valve Steam Deck. With 1 TB of storage capacity and PCIe Gen4 speeds this is no lightweight SSD either. The second SSD Corsair announced is the MP600 CORE XT. This 80 mm long M.2 drive features capacities of 1, 2, and 4 TBs with PCIe Gen 4×4 performance.
The Corsair MP600 MINI is listed for $110 at Corsair’s website while the MP600 CORE XT starts at just $60 for the 1 TB model. Below is Corsair’s official press release with links for additional information.
High Speed Storage Meets Small Form Factor – CORSAIR Launches MP600 MINI and MP600 CORE XT M.2 NVMe SSDs
MILPITAS, CA, April 25th, 2023 – CORSAIR® (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced the launch of two new PCIe Gen4 M.2 Solid State Drives—the MP600 MINI and the MP600 CORE XT. These drives extend the CORSAIR SSD range to an ultra-compact M.2 2230 form factor, and a new highly competitive combination of price and performance, allowing a new wave of device upgrades.
The MP600 MINI brings CORSAIR M.2 SSD performance to its smallest ever size, with the M.2 2230 form factor measuring just 22mm x 30mm. The MP600 MINI is compatible with popular handheld gaming systems, such as the Valve Steam Deck, as well as thin and light machines where space is at a premium, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 8 and 9. With an impressive 1TB of capacity and PCIe Gen4 performance of up to 4,800MB/sec read and 4,800MB/sec write, the MP600 MINI is an ideal performance and storage upgrade for data hungry small-form-factor devices, whether it’s to store a growing game collection, or essential files.
The MP600 CORE XT employs high-density 3D QLC NAND Flash to offer strong performance at a great price. Available in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities*, the MP600 CORE XT offers plenty of options for easily expanding the storage in compatible motherboards, notebooks, and laptops with its industry standard M.2 2280 form factor. PCIe Gen4 x4 support means you’ll enjoy sustained throughput of up to 5,000MB/sec reads and 4,400MB/sec writes, which is up to 10x faster than you’ll see from a SATA SSD.
Both the MP600 MINI and MP600 CORE XT are backwards compatible with PCIe Gen3**, allowing you to enjoy a speedy upgrade on a wide variety of devices.
Like all CORSAIR solid state drives, the new MP600 SSDs are supported by the free CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software and are backed by a five-year warranty for guaranteed peace of mind.
* Performance and endurance vary by capacity.
** Reduced performance on PCIe Gen3.
