Corsair Neutron NX500 series PCIe SSDs appear online

 
Two new Corsair NVMe SSDs have appeared in the US, sporting a PCIe form factor and premium grade NVMe SSD performance. 
 
These two SSDs are listed with the NX500 brand name, with capacities of 400GB and 800GB and sequential read/write speeds of up to 3,000MB/s and 2,400MB/s. In terms of random Read and write performance these SSDs are also set to offer 300,000 and 270,000 IOPS respectively, which is a lot of performance for a modern SSD.  
 
Both of these new NX500 series SSDs come with MLC flash, which means that there is potential to offer TLC-based models in the future, though these will no doubt offer less performance. At this time the controller used in this SSD is unknown,
