Corsair MP510 SSD review

Corsair was already able to shake up the SSD market at the beginning of 2017. The MP500 series at that time caused even the industry’s industry leader Samsung to shake its knees. Not without reason. As a result, the powerful MP500 series could even keep up with the untouchable models of Samsung’s EVO and PRO series. So there are more than enough reasons to take a look at the successor. We’d like to take a closer look at the Corsair MP510 in our practical test.

We’re testing the version of the MP510 with the memory size of 480 GB.

Always a premium SSD

Without a doubt, the Corsair MP510 is a solid state drive (SSD) in the luxury class segment. And as was the case with its predecessor, the EVO and PRO models from Samsung are clearly competitors. However, one should not make the mistake of attributing the production of the Corsair MP510 solely to Corsair. The experts from Kioxia (formerly Toshiba Memory) are responsible for a not to be sneezed at. The Japanese tech company has donated the flash memory to the SSD. This is the BiCS-3, a 3D NAND flash with 64 layers. This is one reason for the success of the SSDs from Corsair.
