Corsair MP600 Elite, DRAM-less PCIe 4.0

The Phison E27T Controller, Faster Transfers And Less Power

The Corsair MP600 Elite series offers you PCIe 4.0 performance for less than $0.10/GB, the 1TB should cost $95 and the 2TB would be $170; you can drop that price by an additional $5 if you skip the heatsink.  As the price suggests, the MP600 Elite does not have a DRAM cache and from TechPowerUp’s testing the SLC cache is a rather small 48 GB on the 2TB model.  That said, when completely filling the 2TB drive they saw an average transfer speed of 1.4 GB/s.

When you are not torture testing it, you should see sequential reads just over 7000MB/s and reads of around 6500MB/s.  That gives it a performance advantage over many of the other PCIe 4.0 drives on the market.  You can check out the full review here for more details on the performance of the MP600 Elite series.
