We test all SSDs as our system (OS) disk filled 50% with data. This allows us to closely replicate a typical user scenario. Testing like we do often results in lower benchmark results, however despite our built-in handicap we had no problem exceeding Corsair's factory sequential performance specifications of 4,950MB/s read, and 4250MB/s write.

When evaluating SSDs we always place more value on read performance. This also happens to be where we typically see the biggest decline in performance when going from 1TB to 2TB. Not so with Corsair's MP600 2TB. Anvil's read scoring is only slightly lower than the 1TB version. The competition suffers a more drastic reduction in performance compared to their 1TB versions.

Like its 1TB sibling, the MP600 2TB crushes its flash-based competition. Only Intel's Optane 905P can do better but, that is not a flash-based SSD and it costs well over $2000.

We don't place much importance on max IOPS, we are just showing what the drive can deliver while running in our test-state. 830K write and 641K read with the drive 50% full is outstanding to say the least.
