Coming in 120GB, 240GB, 480GB, 960GB, the Corsair Force MP300 SSD series is based on a standard M.2 2280 form-factor with PCIe 3.0 x2 NVMe interface. Corsair did not reveal many technical details so we only know it is based on 3D TLC NAND but we do not know which controller is behind it.
Corsair says that the Force MP300 should fill the market gap between SATA-based SSDs and high-end PCIe NVMe SSDs, like its own Force MP500.
The Force MP300 got a significant hit in both sequential and random performance, which heavily depends on the actual capacity, so 120GB version will peak at 1520MB/s and 460MB/s for sequential read and write and 110K IOPS and 80K IOPS for random 4K read and write, while the top 960GB version peaks at 1600MB/s and 1080MB/s for sequential read and write and 240K IOPS and 210 IOPS for random 4K read and write performance.
The 240GB model comes with 1,580/920 MB/s sequential read/write performance with 180K/110K IOPS for random 4K read/write while the 480GB model hits 1600/1040 MB/s sequential and 220K/200K IOPS random 4K performance.
Of course, the Force MP300 should offer a good price/performance ratio costing $50 for the 120GB version, $85 for the 240GB one, $155 for the 480GB and US $319.99 for the 960GB model. Currently, only the 120GB and 240GB models are available from Corsair.com while 480GB and 960GB should be coming soon.
