MP600 Micro is Corsair's first SSD with compact M.2 2242 format

Corsair has expanded its range of SSDs with the MP600 Micro. Contrary to what its name suggests, it is a larger version of the existing MP600 Mini. The Micro measures 22 x 42 millimeters and is therefore a good centimeter longer than the Mini, which has a length of 30 mm. It is still aimed at compact devices, although in some cases such as the Valve Steam Deck there is no room for the m.2 2242 format.

Currently there only seems to be a 1TB variant. It offers sequential read and write speeds of 5,100 and 4,300 MB/s. For reference, the MP600 Mini goes up to 4,800 MB/s in both cases. In terms of random performance, the Micro loses out, with reads and writes of 600k and 890k iops in QD32 IOMeter. That is 250k and 210k less than its smaller brother respectively. The lifespan of both product lines is identical at 600 TBW.

The lower speeds are reflected in the price: on Corsair’s website 95 euros is charged for the MP600 Micro 1 TB, while the MP600 Mini 1 TB changes hands for 125 euros. In practice, both are cheaper: the Mini is available from 98 euros at our affiliated web shops. At the time of writing, the Micro can already be found at Amazon NL, for 78.44 euros.
