Corsair decided it was time to start teasing its upcoming MP700 PCIe 5.0 NVMe SSD, although the company didn't bother providing any images of the drive itself, or any specifications in the teaser. However, Corsair did provide some sequential performance figures, which end up being impressive and disappointing at the same time. The MP700 is said to offer sequential read speeds of up to 10 GB/s or 10,000 MB/s if you prefer and sequential write speeds of 9.5 GB/s. These are obviously very fast speeds, but quite far from what the PCIe 5.0 can deliver and the performance figures are only a bit faster than the best PCIe 4.0 drives. It's likely that we'll see better performance from second generation controllers, just as we did with PCIe 4.0 SSDs, as this gives both the SSD controller makers and the SSD makers a chance to refresh their products a year or two down the line.
 
I wonder if these figures are based on early SSD firmware.

    I would have to agree that I would have hoped for more and part of why I said before it’s good to see what the premium for PCIe 5.0 is over a PCIe 4.0 drive. Both are going to be very fast drives. Hopefully a revision of the controller or firmware update can really show a performance gain that really is greater.

    more of the same here also with sequential read and write foolery... i hope it offers more than that

    Hopefully those figures will get better if Corsair expects to compete against Samsung.

    I would have to agree since I personally don't like Samsung being far in the lead in a generation. It really means they are in control over pricing while if other companies are near the same performance it brings down prices.
