Unveiled last week, Corsair's MP600 PRO XT is available in 1, 2, and 4 TB variants with sequential read speeds of up to 7,100 MB/s and capable of sequential writes of more than 6,800 MB/s. This new PCIe Gen 4 SSD with extreme performance features an aluminum heat spreader and comes with a five-year warranty.

Last week, Corsair added another blazing-fast SSD to its lineup of PCIe Gen 4 solutions. Although listed on its website, this impressive piece of hardware is still missing from most online and offline stores. However, until more people get the chance to grab one, the MP600 PRO XT remains a fresh piece of storage hardware worth checking out.

Without further ado, here are the highlights of the Corsair MP600 PRO XT:

  • Form factor: M.2 2280 NVMe
  • Technology: 3D TLC NAND
  • Cooling: aluminum heat spreader (included), compatible with Corsair's Hydro X Series XM2 Water Block (sold separately)
  • Capacities: 1, 2, 4 TB
  • Sequential read and write speeds: 7,100 MB/s and 6,800 MB/s
  • Maximum input/output operations: over 1,000,000 IOPS
  • Endurance: up to 3,000 TBW (4 TB model)
  • Warranty: 5 years

Since I wasn't able to find the Corsair MP600 PRO XT in my area or on Amazon, I can only suppose that the price will be higher than that of the existing MP600, which is currently available for a nice discount on Amazon (see below). As always, feel free to hit the comments section if there's anything you would like to share with the rest of the world (stores that have the MP600 PRO XT available and some price tags would be great).

Blazing Fast Gen4 Speed to Break the Million IOPS Barrier – CORSAIR Launches MP600 PRO XT M.2 NVMe SSDs

FREMONT, CA, September 9th, 2021 — CORSAIR® (NASDAQ: CRSR), a world leader in enthusiast components for gamers, creators, and PC builders, today announced the launch of a new Gen4 PCIe x4 NVMe M.2 Solid State Drive – the MP600 PRO XT. Available in capacities up to an immense 4TB, the MP600 PRO XT stores massive amounts of data in a convenient form-factor that neatly fits nearly any PC build. For those who need to run games, load applications, and transfer files at lighting speed, the MP600 PRO XT delivers incredible sustained performance with a pre-installed heatspreader, leaving standard M.2 SSDs in the dust.

The MP600 PRO XT boasts extreme performance paired with exceptional cooling and compatibility, breaking the 7,000MB/sec barrier with up to 7,100MB/sec sequential read and 6,800MB/sec sequential write speeds*, as well as more than one million input/output operations per second (IOPS). The MP600 PRO XT is built with high-density 3D TLC NAND, delivering both great performance and endurance – up to 3,000TB Written. Leading-edge PCIe Gen4 technology ensures that your drive achieves maximum bandwidth, and backward-compatibility with PCIe Gen3 gives you the versatility to bring fast storage to a host of systems.**

Installed directly onto a motherboard with a compact M.2 2280 industry-standard NVMe form-factor, the MP600 PRO XT sports a uniquely styled aluminum heatspreader to ensure optimal temperatures even under maximum speeds. The heatspreader’s high surface area efficiently disperses heat and reduces throttling, giving you the performance you need while also looking more stylish than a typical bare M.2 drive. The MP600 PRO XT is also compatible with the CORSAIR Hydro X Series XM2 Water Block (sold separately), enabling you to integrate your SSD in a custom cooling loop to achieve even lower temperatures and maximize performance.

Like all CORSAIR SSDs, the MP600 PRO XT is supported by free CORSAIR SSD Toolbox software, enabling convenient features such as secure erase and firmware updates directly from your desktop. With a five-year warranty for extended peace of mind that your storage will remain fast and reliable, the MP600 PRO XT takes full advantage of PCIe Gen4 technology for extreme M.2 performance.

* Performance and endurance vary by capacity.
**Lower performance on PCIe Gen3.
