Corsair is working on SSD at 10,000MB per second

With the MP700, Corsair wants to market an SSD with a PCI-E 5.0 connection that achieves 10,000 MB/s.

Current SSDs already offer read speeds of over 6,000 MB per second thanks to the connection via PCI-E-4.0. Even when writing, the best models are only slightly slower and shovel over 5,000 MB per second over the data bus. With the forthcoming Ryzen 7000 CPUs from AMD, data can be transferred even faster thanks to PCI-E 5.0 and the corresponding 600 chipsets. With the SSD MP700, manufacturer Corsair has presented a data carrier that should particularly benefit from the new interface.

The end of loading times

The MP700 series is said to enable read data transfers at up to 10,000 MB per second by using four lanes of the PCI-E 5.0 interface. The write speed should be a little lower at 9,500 MB per second. However, the maximum possible of the new interface has not yet been reached. Even faster models are likely to appear in the coming months and years. On its website, Corsair promises the end of loading times in programs and games. However, it remains to be seen to what extent the increase in performance will be noticeable in everyday use.

Available from the end of September at the earliest

How exactly Corsair’s new MP700 series will look like, however, remains a secret. The manufacturer is also silent on the prices. However, it can be assumed that the SSDs with PCI-E 5.0 will be significantly more expensive than previously available models. However, Corsair still has some time before the new Ryzen 7000 CPUs are launched. AMD wants to present the new Zen 4 processors at the end of August, but the chips will probably not be available until the end of September. The new SSDs with PCI Express 5.0 will probably not be commercially available before then.
