Product Overview

MSI SPATIUM M470 is a mainstream PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD. Compared to the M480 unveiled at the same time, the M470 is compatible with only NVMe 1.3; as a result, it attains maximum sequential read and write of 5000 MB/s and 4400 MB/s respectively.
Thanks to the 3D NAND stacked flash, MSI is able to pack up to 2TB onto an M.2 2280 card. It is compatible for both desktop and laptop computers.
Another highlight is the uses of PCI express Gen4 x4 interface, which is reflected in its model name. Naturally, the SPATIUM M470 supports a range of data security and error-correction features such as Trim, S.M.A.R.T., LDPC ECC, and E2E Data Protection.
Alongside the M480 and M470, MSI also introduced the SPATIUM M370 SSD.

MSI’s Spatium M470 delivers PCie 4.0 performance, but it isn’t quite as fast. The 1 TB model is currently the best value at just $129.99. The M470 comes in an M.2 2280 form factor in both 1TB and 2TB capacities.
