Corsair MP600 Elite Review


The Corsair MP range of NVMe drives has been around for what feels like forever. We’ve reviewed a whole host of them before, including the Corsair MP600 Pro, and today it’s time to take a look at the MP600 Elite.

By now the tale will be a familiar one if you keep up with the hardware world. Gen 4 NVMe drives are the perfect balance between performance and coolness. Not cool as in “well cool”, but actually frosty. Or, perhaps it’s better to say the PCIe Gen 5 drives are hot.

The real reason a lot of people investigate the Gen 4 drives, especially around the 2TB capacity sweet spot, is consoles. Both the XBOX Series X, or whatever the latest one is called within Microsoft’s confusing nomenclature, and the Playstation 5 support M.2 upgrades. With the heft of modern AAA titles easily hitting 100GB it’s easy to see why you might want to invest in a new model. If you just want an extra place to put your Steam library, or even want to go for a fast OS drive, then a Gen 4 model is perfect. Which is where the Corsair MP600 Elite comes in.

There are two different capacities, 1TB and 2TB, as well as a choice as to whether you want the heatsink installed or not. We’ve got the heatsink 2TB model for review today. How will it fair in a very competitive market? Will it best the huge selling Sabrent drives? Does the Elite trump Corsair’s own Pro or vanilla MP600 models? Let’s find out.
