CORSAIR MP600 PRO XT 2 TB NVMe SSD Review – Faster than the MSI SPATIUM M480?

Disclaimer: The following article is machine translated from the original German, and has not been edited or checked for errors. Thank you for understanding!

With the MP600 PRO XT Corsair rounds off the SSD portfolio upwards, but in comparison to the direct competitors it doesn’t rely on the original Micron reference design like e.g. MSI with the SPATIUM M480, but modifies board and firmware. It will be interesting to see how this affects performance later on. In analogy to the competitors, a quite new and fast controller for the 2 TB NAND memory, consisting of 512 GB modules in the form of the new 176-layer TLC NAND (B47R) from Micron, is used with the Phison PS5018-E18.

They advertise this SSD, just like almost all other manufacturers, with a “dynamic pSLC cache”, which I want and need to say a few words about in the course of the article for a better understanding. But back to the SSD, as the 2TB model available with a current street price of a little under 380 euros (MSRP 400 euros) is quite an interesting affair that also comes in other capacities. Well, unfortunately it’s not really affordable for everyone, because the fun isn’t quite that cheap then again. But she’s fast, so that compensates for many a monetary hiccup up front.

Unboxing, accessories and assembly

Corsair packages the SSD with the pre-mounted cooling block, which isn’t quite such a smart idea in these days of motherboards with integrated M.2 coolers. Those who trust the motherboard’s M.2 cooler more or prefer to use it due to space issues will have to remove the cooling block with a bit of effort, because the thermal pads stick pretty tightly. Absolute caution is called for here! The rest leaves it better in the original and is pleased about a quite passable cooling performance, the once again grown cooler with the vertically aligned fins.

So in the end, it is purely a question of taste and technical necessities which variant you choose. Both are feasible. And since the cooler isn’t anything proprietary, it can even end up being used for other SSDs.

By the way, Corsair warns of a loss of warranty if you remove the internal sticker on the back of the PCB, but the temperatures are quite a bit lower without the sticker when in direct contact with the thermal pads of the optional cooling block or the M.2 slot cooler. Tip from me: warm it up with a hair dryer (then the detaching VIOD text artwork remains), carefully peel it off and stick it on the plastic insert of the packaging, after you have let the sticker cool down a bit. It works just as well the other way around.

For a better overview, I now have the data sheet of the individual variants for you, before I defoliate the SSD on the following page and analyze the technology including dynamic pSLC:

Der Kühlkörper sieht irgendwie cool aus, schöner Test. Bin aber mit meiner geschenkt bekommenen PCI3.0 2TB Crucial P5 auch sehr zufrieden :D

Ich finde die SSD etwas teuer. Wenn man nicht unbedingt die lange Garantiedauer haben möchte, gibt es wesentlich günstigere Modelle.
Z.B. diese hier: Samsung OEM Client SSD PM9A1 2TB, M.2.

Ich habe diese "OEM-Sumsang", aber man sollte wissen, das ein "Firmware-Bug" vorliegt (Schreibraten brechen ein)
und keine Garantie & Support seitens Samsung möglich ist.

Ist doch eine OEM mit Null Garantie, Magician wird nicht unterstützt, also keine erweiterte Funktionalität usw...Auch die Firmware Updates sind dann mehr Glückssache und Frickelei. Da kannst (heute) lieber gleich für ähnliche Summe beim Geizmarkt (MwSt-geschenkt-Aktion) eine SN850 2TB kaufen.

Natürlich geht man bei der Garantie ein gewisses Risiko ein. Wozu brauche ich Magician? Andere Hersteller geben ja auch keine Software bei, und die SSDs funktionieren trotzdem zufriedenstellend.
Und die Geschwindigkeit leidet auch nicht darunter.
