Corsair Neutron NX500 NVMe SSD Review (400GB) - PCSTATS.com Corsair Neutron NX500 NVMe SSD Review (400GB)
Sun, Aug 27 2017 | 9:01AM | Filed under: Hard Drives/SSD| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

This is the Corsair NX500. While it doesn’t come in a compact M.2 form factor, the NX500 is a PCIe NVMe SSD that boasts similar, and in some cases better, performance than the MP500 as well as higher endurance. How is this you may ask? It’s pretty simple actually. By over provisioning the SSD, or allocating less usable space to the end user, the SSD is able to have more scratch space, so to say, to utilize for background tasks such as garbage collection. With this added space for the controller to use, as well as a larger DRAM cache, heavy workload performance should improve and endurance should increase. Furthermore, the NX500 features a very large heat sink which, while could be over kill, adds a lot to its aesthetics and keeps the powerful Phison E7 controller cool. But with these refinements and enhancements, is it going to be a better buy for enthusiasts than everything else out there already? Do the improvements and aesthetics make it worth your while? Read on and find out!
