Devices such as the Steam Deck and ASUS ROG Ally are fantastic handheld gaming machines, capable of delivering impressive graphical fidelity and performance despite their diminutive size. However, this doesn't mean we can't help out a bit.
That's where the CORSAIR MP600 CORE MINI comes in. Its a high-performance M.2 2230 SSD. That number squeezed in between the M.2 and SSD refers to the physical size of the drive, measuring at is does a mere 30mm in length. For comparison, most desktop NVMe SSDs use the M.2 2280 form factor, which is 80mm long. The MP600 CORE MINI is available in either 1TB or 2TB options and you can find more details below.
So, here's a quick summary of the benefits of M.2 NVMe SSDs.
NVMe SSDs are faster, more compact, have a longer lifespan, and use less energy than SATA SSDs and mechanical hard drives. SATA SSDs and mechanical hard drives are less expensive and can offer more storage space, but the compromise often favors NVMe SSDs.
The CORSAIR MP600 CORE MINI Gen4 PCIe x4 NVMe M.2 SSD offers sequential read speeds of up to 5,000MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 3,800MB/sec. Speeds like this will yield increased performance, managing files, loading games, and booting up your device.
The diminutive M.2 SSD offers greater flexibility in design and use cases. They are often used in scenarios where space, power, and performance are critical considerations. Offering up to 2TB of capacity, the MP600 CORE MINI is the ideal upgrade solution for compatible ultra-thin devices. It also has automatic support for PCIe Gen3 systems, so it's basically plug and play with out setting adjustments.
Here are the different models available.
MP600 CORE MINI
Lets look at the key features of the MP600 CORE MINI.
COMPACT M.2 2230 FORM-FACTOR WITH WIDE COMPATIBILITY
NVMe stands for Non-Volatile Memory Express. It's the way data is transferred rather than the physical shape of the drive. NVMe SSDs offer the fastest transfer speeds for any SSDs on the consumer market.
This Form-Factor is also fully compatible with Valve Steam Deck, ASUS ROG Ally, Microsoft Surface Pro, and plenty of other ultra-thin devices.
HIGH-DENSITY 3D QLC NAND
The use of 3D QLC NAND means the MP600 CORE MINI offers up excellent data integrity and reliability with high capacity and all at an attractive price point.
