Corsair used CrystalDiskMark to establish their sequential performance specifications of 4,950MB/s read, and 4250MB/s write. We had no problem meeting and exceeding factory specifications even though we ran ours as an OS disk 50% filled with data. The MP600's PCIe Gen4 interface allows for unrivaled sequential performance in the consumer space.
As impressive as the sequential numbers are, we are similarly impressed with the random performance the MP600 is serving up at 4KiB Q1T1. This indicates that the MP600 will deliver excellent real-world performance.

We place our highest value on the read score, and the MP600 does not disappoint. The MP600 easily outpaces the flash-based competition. The only SSD on our chart that can deliver better read performance is the 3D XPoint-based Intel Optane 905P, but keep in mind that is a $1,200 SSD.
We don't place much importance on max IOPS, we are just showing what the drive can deliver while running in our test-state. That said, the numbers are quite impressive.
