Corsair Neutron NX500 SSD on Newegg; Available in 400 GB and 800 GB

Corsair has quietly added a brand new SSD to its portfolio which is at the moment accessible on Newegg. The brand new Neutron NX500 SSDs are available in considerably uncommon 400 GB and 800 GB capacities, which doubtless means an excessively elevated over provisioning in order to make sure prime endurance and efficiency. The Neutron NX500 SSDs come within the add-in NVMe card type issue, with a beefy heatsink to prime all of it up. That heatsink serves to chill not solely the NAND chips, but in addition the Phison E7 controller that is lurking beneath.

Curiously, and although 3D TLC NAND is all the trend nowadays on account of elevated density on the identical footprint, with out bringing any severe, real-world issues associated to endurance, as we’ve seen, the Neutron NX500 seems to pack MLC reminiscence. Do you even keep in mind that? That is a part of the explanation why efficiency is rated so excessive: there’s three,000 MB/s learn, 2,400 MB/s writes, 300,000 IOPS in random learn, and 270,000 IOPS on random write workloads. Although you’ll have to pay a reasonably penny for this sort of efficiency: the 400 GB Corsair Neutron NX500 is at the moment retailing for $319.99, whereas the 800 GB model will not provide you with any advantages from the financial system of scale: it retails for $699.99.
