Corsair has expanded its MP600 series solid-state drive lineup with a 1TB Micro model. The new product is manufactured in the compact M.2 2242 form factor and, according to the manufacturer, fits ideally into portable set-top boxes, PCs, laptops and other compact devices.
The new product uses 3D TLC NAND flash memory chips. The drive is equipped with a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface and offers sequential read speeds of up to 5100 MB/s and sequential storage speeds of up to 4300 MB/s. Random read and write performance is 600,000 and 890,000 IOPS, respectively.
The typical power consumption of an SSD is 4.3 W. The new product can operate at temperatures from 0°C to +65°C and relative humidity up to 93%. The Corsair MP600 Micro is quoted as having a resource of 600 TBW (terabytes of overwritten information) or up to 1.5 million downtime hours. The manufacturer offers a five-year guarantee.
Let’s recall that Corsair previously released MP600 mini-SSDs, which are manufactured in an even more compact M.2 2230 form factor. The latter are primarily intended for Steam Deck portable consoles and Microsoft Surface Pro 8 and Pro 9 tablets. The new larger MP600 Micro is perfect for the Lenovo Legion Go portable set-top box.
Corsair priced the MP600 Micro at $74.99, but Amazon is offering the new product at a discount of $69.99.
