The video was first spotted by Overclock3D who managed to capture the still. Furthermore, they were able to read the description, which confirms that this storage will use NVMe 2.0 protocol, and it will use high-density 3D TLC NAND memory.

Corsair MP700 is an M.2 2280 form factor storage solution with a large black aluminum heatsink and a single fan. The company also mentions Microsoft DirectStorage technology enabling ‘unprecedented load times’, but this technology does not require any certification or special enablement by Corsair.

Experience the performance of PCIe Gen5 storage in your system, with up to 10,000MB/sec sequential read and 9,500MB/sec sequential write speeds for amazingly fast save, boot, and load times.

The high-bandwidth NVMe 2.0 interface and high-density 3D TLC NAND flash memory offer outstanding performance and longevity. Slot the MP700 directly into your motherboard thanks to its M.2 2280 form-factor, while a stylish aluminum heatsink helps manage temperatures and reduce throttling. Microsoft DirectStorage enables unprecedented load times when playing compatible games.

This MP700 SSD will become another PCIe Gen5 option with speeds reaching 10 GB/s. Thus far most of such products require active cooling, and it is not clear if they can be used just as efficiently under a motherboard heatsink.

Corsair teased its MP700 storage solution way before it became topic number one. Intel’s 600 motherboard series had limited support for this standard, and only AMD’s latest AM5-based platform and Intel Z790 series can truly take full advantage of this technology.

Unfortunately, there are no further details, such as product release date or IOPS figures, not to mention the price. However, since the teaser video was already uploaded, it is very likely that the company will make the product official in the coming days.
