Corsair is launching a new round of PCIe 4.0 M.2 NVMe SSDs based on the latest reference designs from Phison plus Corsair's own heatsink designs. Starting off, the Corsair MP600 CORE is their first PCIe 4.0 SSD with QLC NAND flash memory. This uses the older Phison E16 controller so peak performance only pushes a little bit beyond what would be possible with PCIe 3.0, but it's still a step up from the Corsair MP400.
