What happened? The new Corsair MP600 Pro PCIe 4.0 SSD received extremely positive reviews earlier this year due to its impressive speed, low temperature, and five-year warranty. But the company does not continue to succeed. An upgraded version of the M.2 drive has arrived called the MP600 Pro XT which is faster than its predecessor.
Corsair says its Gen4 SSD can reach up to 7100 MB/s with sequential read speeds and 6800 MB/s with sequential write speeds, ahead of the MP600 Pro's 7000 MB/s read and write speeds 6550 Mbps. This one is also fatter than its predecessor and has a matte black aluminum heatsink with eight fins, which should be enough to withstand the high temperature it creates. At 19mm, the heatsink is quite tall, so you may want to consider it when planning its construction.
Those who want to integrate the MP600 Pro XT into a dedicated water cooler can get the water block version - the MP600 Pro XT Hydro X Edition - which has a capacity of 2TB and 4TB available for $10 to $25 additionally. Instead, the standard version of the air cooler is compatible with the Corsair CMC2 Hydro X Series water block.
