Back in January of this year, Corsair released the MP600 CORE NVMe SSD. This drive features QLC NAND flash memory and features the Phison E16 controller. Typically we've seen QLC memory offered on large capacity budget-oriented drives because of its high-density capabilities. With the E16 controller, the CORE is capable of strong performance numbers, but it's not quite as fast as a typical E16 NVMe. Follow along as we take a look at this unique drive and give you a rundown of its performance.
