Corsair Components, Inc. announced the availability of the Force MP500 range of M.2 SSDs, the fastest yet produced by the company.

Available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities, the MP500 range delivers performance up to five times faster than traditional 6Gb SATA SSDs, offering users high-performance storage in a compact form factor.

Equipped with a Phison PS5007-E7 NVMe controller and high-bandwidth PCIe Gen. 3 x4 M.2 2280 interface, the MP500 range of drives put your data in the fast lane. Delivering data performance including read speeds of up to 3,000 MB/s and write speeds of up 2,400 MB/s, the MP500 range of SSD accelerate system boots, game load times and file transfers beyond anything possible over a single 6Gb SATA connection.

The compact M.2 2280 form factor allows the MP500 range to deliver its performance in smaller form factors than any previous Corsair SSD. With no data or power cables required, an MP500 SSD can be fitted right onto the motherboard or installed into compact laptops and small form factor systems where space is key.

The Force Series MP500 range is committed to data integrity and reliability. Proprietary SmartECC, SmartRefresh and SmartFlush technologies safeguard data against corruption in case of unexpected power loss or unsafe shutdown, while static and dynamic wear-leveling enhance drive reliability. It is also compatible with Corsair SSD Tool box, allowing users to monitor many aspects of their drives health or to securely wipe and clear the drive.

They are backed by a three-year warranty.
