Corsair’s PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD Found For Pre-Order: MP600 up to 2TBby Anton Shilov on June 25, 2019 11:30 AM EST

Amazon Japan has started to take pre-orders on Cosair’s upcoming PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD. The MP600 SSDs will ship in mid-July, several days after AMD and its partners start to sell platforms that support the PCIe 4.0 interface.
At press time, Amazon Japan is offering Corsair MP600 M.2-2280 SSDs with a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface featuring 1 TB and 2 TB capacity for ￥36,936 ($320) and ￥66,852 ($579), respectively. Considering the fact that we are talking about ultra-high-end client SSDs aimed at expensive desktops, their prices are not exactly surprising. Meanwhile, keep in mind that these are not their official MSRPs.
UPDATE: Amazon US on Tuesday also started to take pre-orders on Corsair's MP600 SSDs. The 1 TB model costs $250, whereas the 2 TB SKU is priced at $450.
According to Corsair, its MP600 SSDs will offer up to 4950 MB/s sequential read speed as well as up to 4250 MB/s sequential write speed when used with a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface, which is substantially faster when compared to modern PCIe 3.0 x4 drives.
Corsair’s MP600 drives are based on Phison’s PS5016-E16 controller as well as 3D TLC NAND memory. Considering that Phison usually sells controllers and NAND flash memory as a turnkey solution, expect other suppliers of SSDs to offer drives very similar to the MP600 family by Corsair at around the same timeframe. In the meantime, Corsair definitely deserves a credit for starting to offer its PCIe 4.0 SSDs ahead of competitors.
We saw a number of PCIe 4.0 drives at Computex this year, so we expect the market to have a sizeable number available in due course:
- Phison’s PS5016-E16 & PS5019-E19: The First PCIe 4.0 Client SSD Controllers
- Corsair Announces MP600 NVMe SSD With PCIe 4.0
- More 2TB PCIe 4.0 SSD Options: Patriot with Custom Firmware coming Q4
- TeamGroup Cardea Zero PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD: Up to 1 TB
- Galax Goes White: A PCIe 4.0 2TB SSD with a White PCB
- Essencore 2 TB PCIe 4.0 SSD Enters The Game
- GIGABYTE’s PCIe 4.0 SSD Uses 77g of Copper Due to 8W TDP, up to 2TB

CrystalCowboy - Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - linkPCIe 4.0: We have word of a number of SSDs coming soon. AMD will be releasing Navi graphics cards for it soon. I haven't seen anything about 10G ethernet cards using PCIe 4.0 yet. I calculate that a 10G interface should be able to fit on a PCIe 4.0 x1 interface. Is my math correct? And is there any word of such a card in the works from anybody?
MrAndroidRobot - Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - linkJust buy a motherboard with one build in like the Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme
R3MF - Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - linkAnd what will those built in 10Gb controllers be attached too?
DigitalFreak - Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - linkYes, PCIe 4.0 is 2GBps per lane. I doubt you'll see a PCIe 4.0 x1 network card anytime soon though. There's not really a market for one, as most everyone is still on PCIe 3.0.
CrystalCowboy - Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - link"... as most everyone is still on PCIe 3.0."
Check back after July 7, 2019

no kidding, will not take long there will be AMD 7nm and PCI-e 4 etc in the world at large, likely for a "reasonable cost" considering the stupid amount of crap they fit under the same size lid as they have always used (more or less) since skt 939/940 (not counting Threadripper of course)
DigitalFreak - Tuesday, June 25, 2019 - linkSorry, but your fantasy that PCIe 4.0 is going to take over the world is laughable.
Chaitanya - Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - linkEnterprises will be more than willing to upgrade to PCI-e 4.0 as it allows them add more network interfaces and storage.
Ej24 - Wednesday, June 26, 2019 - linkIIRC, IBM power systems have been shipping with pcie 4.0 for several years already so enterprise is already on board.
Eletriarnation - Monday, July 1, 2019 - linkOf course it will, just as the standards we use now took over the world from the standards before then... it's just a matter of how long it will take.
