    Phoronix: Corsair Force MP510 240GB NVMe SSD Ubuntu Linux Benchmarks

    Last week Corsair announced the Force Series MP510 M.2 PCIe NVMe solid-state drives as the company's fastest SSDs to date. While being Corsair's latest and fastest NVMe SSDs, the pricing is competitive with the 240GB model starting out at $70 USD, 480GB for $130 USD, $239 for 960GB, or $475 for a 1920GB version.

    Thanks for the heads up. I’m looking for an SSD for my laptop, these prices are really good.

      I wonder what caused the improvement in drive temperatures between the MP500 and MP510. Did you use a heat sink on one of the drives, and not the other, maybe they improved that "heatsink" label. Or is it because Corsair used a more efficient controller and NAND flash on this newer drive?

        All the drives were tested without any extra heatsinks/coolers.

          Corsair provides no Linux support for SSD firmware upgrades. I think this should be made clear on a site like Phoronix, as others like Samsung, Intel, and Crucial provide ISOs for OS-independent firmware upgrades.

          For me, this means I won't support Corsair until they support my use of their product.
