Corsair Launches Force Series MP510 NVMe SSD

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.

The performance, power efficiency, warranty and write endurance rating are all up to par for a high-end drive in today’s market. However, with the Silicon Motion SM2262EN controller coming soon, 96L 3D NAND starting to ship, and possible new SSD announcements at a Samsung event tomorrow, the Corsair MP510 and similar Phison E12 drives are facing strong competition.

The Corsair Force MP510 is currently available in capacities from 240GB to 960GB, with a 1920GB model coming soon. Our review of the 960GB model will be up later this week, but most of our benchmark results are already online in our Bench database.
