What you need to know

  • Corsair's MP600 PRO XT SSD has launched.
  • It features a "uniquely styled" heatspreader, 7,100MB/s (megabyte per second) read speeds, and up to 4TB of storage capacity.
  • The 1TB variant costs $199, while the 2TB goes for $399, and the 4TB costs $989.

If you're looking to upgrade SSDs and aren't afraid of spending big, Corsair has a few new options for you by way of its MP600 PRO XT (opens in new tab) Gen4 PCIe x4 NVMe M.2 Solid State Drive that comes in multiple storage sizes.

The SSD sports 7,100MB/s (megabyte per second) read speeds, 6,800MB/s (megabyte per second) write speeds, and is backward-compatible with PCIe Gen3. It also has a "uniquely styled" aluminum heatspreader to make sure situations never get too hot for the hardware to handle. In the event you happen to have a Corsair Hydro X Series XM2 water block lying around, the MP600 PRO XT will play nice with it so that you can maintain the absolute lowest operating temps possible.

But wait, there's more. The MP600 PRO XT also benefits from CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software support and includes a five-year warranty to make sure customers are guaranteed satisfaction for half a decade.
