Force MP500 – Corsair announces its fastest SSD

Corsair, a company that is not at all new to the sphere of SSD production, announced the release of a truly intriguing device – the fastest SSD in their portfolio up to now. We are talking about the Force MP500 model – SSD of the M.2 type that ensures up to five times the speed of conventional SATA 6Gbps SSDs. This is possible thanks to its use of a PCIe Gen 3 M.2 2280 interface (boasting high bandwidth) and an NVMe controller.

So what is the speed limit on this one? Well, it can reach up to 3000 MB/s of read speeds and up to 2400 MB/s of write speeds. Perhaps the next thing you want to know is the capacity options you could choose from? There are three options – 120GB, 240GB and 480GB. Of course, the manufacturer has made sure to include several options for protection so that your valuable data will not be corrupted (SmartFlush, SmartEcc and SmartRefresh technologies).
