Today Corsair is launching the Force Series MP510 as their new high-end M.2 NVMe SSD. The MP510 is a big improvement over the preceding MP500, replacing the Phison E7 controller with the new E12 controller and switching from planar MLC NAND to Toshiba's 64-layer 3D TLC NAND. The MP510 is based on the Phison E12 reference design we tested a few months ago, with slightly improved performance and power efficiency. This makes it generally competitive with other high-end TLC SSDs, giving Phison customers like Corsair their first credible high-end NVMe SSDs. Corsair Force Series MP510 Specifications Capacity 240 GB 480 GB 960 GB 1920 GB Form Factor double-sided M.2 2280, PCIe 3 x4 Controller Phison PS5012-E12 NAND Flash Toshiba BiCS3 256Gb 64-layer 3D TLC Sequential Read 3100 MB/s 3480 MB/s 3480 MB/s 3480 MB/s Sequential Write 1050 MB/s 2000 MB/s 3000 MB/s 2700 MB/s Random Read 180k IOPS 360k...
