MSI SPATIUM M480 and M470 M.2 NVMe Gen 4×4 SSD Review

MSI first announced intentions to enter the SSD market way back in January at the CES 2021 event. After a lengthy global microchip shortage, that intention has finally become a reality. MSI was kind enough to send two models to Overclockers.com for review, the Spatium M480 and M470. The M480, MSI’s flagship SSD, is a 2 TB model sporting an included aluminum finned heatsink, while the M470 is a 1 TB model without a heatsink. It should also be mentioned that there is a third model that is not represented in this review and that is the M370. The M370 is MSI’s budget-conscious, entry-level SSD. With that out of the way, we’ll take a look at the two faster-performing drives and see how they stack up compared to the other drives tested.
