About this deal

I wanted to change OS to a 'built-in' option directly on the motherboard to allow me to upgrade my other drives as needed, however as this drive has plenty room for Windows and any other essential applications it's unlikely I will ever need more. With a Windows 10 install done in UEFI bios mode, and with Ultra-Fast boot enabled (shortly after clean install), booting took literally only 2-3 seconds from BIOS to desktop.

The 4TB MP510 delivers the fourth-best performance for any high-capacity consumer NVMe SSD we've tested to date.With the arrival of the Force Series MP510 by Corsair, that era has ended, and probably the SATA SSDs market with it. As our charts demonstrate, the 4TB MP510 handles heavy workloads with ease, which is something that gives it an advantage over most QLC SSDs.

The front-facing side holds the controller, four NAND chips in total and a DRAM chip (cache) on each side of the PCB. Samsung can’t expect the current pricing for the 970 Evo or 970 Pro drives, and Intel needs to cut the 760p 1TB drive by at least a third. In our read throughput test, the drive's performance at the 512KB block mark faltered but it soon recovered to finish the test at a peak of 2,244. Corsair SSD Toolbox Software: Enables advanced drive controls from your desktop including secure erase and firmware updates.Even if a QLC SSD manages to do a bit better as we see from Intel's 660P, that is offset by the fact that QLC SSDs can quickly wear out if subjected to heavy workloads for a long period of time. If they are self-extracting EXEs or installers, something like 7zip can open and uncompress most of those. With Corsair's full-featured SSD Toolbox, you can monitor SSD health, clone your system, update firmware, and secure erase.
