Corsair MP400 NVMe SSD Review: 1TB Tested


Anvil Storage Utilities

Anvil Storage Utilities 1.1.0

Along with the move to a new platform, we decided to make a change in one of the benchmarks. There’s a relatively new benchmark called Anvil Storage Utilities that is in beta but close to production. It’s a very powerful tool that measures performance through a variety of tests which can be customized.

Anvil SSD Benchmark with 100% Compression (incompressible data):

Anvil SSD Benchmark with 46% Compression (Applications Test):

Benchmark Results: The benchmark results from the most recent build of Anvil SSD Benchmark showed that with 100% compression (incompressible data) that the Corsair MP400 1TB drive scored 12,358.07 points in the standard test with 100% compression.

This level of performance puts the Corsair MP400 in the middle of the pack for the standard benchmark (100% compression) against all the other drives that we have run on this platform! The performance difference between most PCIe Gen 3.0 x4 NVMe drives is pretty small!
