    The Corsair MP700 Pro SE marks the second generation of Corsair's PCIe 5.0 solid-state drives (SSDs), designed to fully utilize the PCIe 5.0 interface. This latest model significantly advances in speed, achieving up to 14 GB/s, and expands the series to cater to various performance requirements.

    Gen5 really needs to come down in price.

    A quick browse over prices here, it looks like double speed = double price, I guess that is fair.
    Personally I would buy a double sized "good enough" gen4 instead of a similar priced gen 5 with double speed.


    I went from 1.5GB/s to 6GB/s on my game drive and did not really notice it at the time, maybe high capacity of memory is enough to keep the read/write traffic down.

    I dont need alot of space so i though getting a 1TB gen5 for my main drive and move sabrent gen4 to secondary slot but it seems its still not worth it.

    It would seem in the world of NVMe drives, increased speed does not equal increased performance.
    And by that i mean real world useable performance. Nobody is noticing the game performance increase of a £500 4TB gen 5 drive over a £250 4TB gen 4 drive

    I would like to see the comparsion in loading times in games that support direct storage like the Horizon FW.

    Something like this but then for HFW.. ;)

    Found 1 for the old game, but that's also with other nvme drives ofc. Skip to 1:57 (edit whoops) to see.

    I see little benefit with the increase in power usage and heat either vs gen4.

    Yes that is what I am seeing i think.
    Could be the random small files of game files that still is bad on drive speed.
    HWMonitor showed a record of 1.4GB/s as the highest one time speed during game startups/loads, all other peaks was at 500MB/s.
    Disk to disk file transfer with a single iso file is 4GB/s no problem.
    Small game file transfer is easily down into the 0.5-1GB/s when copying a game folder.

    For a really, really good test of storage media try compiling a large project like the Boost library. I do that kind of thing fairly often and the difference in storage speeds makes a much larger difference than CPU performance does. A large codebase that uses lots of pre-compiled headers would be a very good test since those files are in the hundreds of megabytes so there would be a good mix of large and small files accessed in an extremely random manner.
