Crucial has released it’s latest NVMe PCIe product, the Crucial P1 SSD series. The P1 SSD is a powerful combination of the NVMe PCIe interface and Micron’s QLC technology. Expanding Crucial’s already large portfolio of high-performance drives, the P1 promises to deliver real-world performance gains at an affordable price point.
A recent study done by Crucial using industry leading PCMark 8 benchmarking software, resulted in the drive delivering mixed-mode throughput performances of around 565MB/s. A performance level high than other drives in the same category.
Key Product Features:
- Leverages NVMe PCIe interface
- Enhanced hybrid-dynamic write acceleration
- Available in 500GB and 1TB capacities
- Backed by a 5-year limited warranty
Using the hybrid-dynamic write acceleration, Crucial believes that read/write speeds of up to 2,000/1,700 MB/s are attenable on the P1. Likewise, the P1’s MTTF is 1.8 million hours with an endurance of up to 200TB total bytes written. This drive is built to last through most system lifecycles.
“We’ve been using Crucial SSDs in our gaming rigs for the past year and a half,” said Patrik Sattermon, Chief Gaming Officer at FNATIC. “The speeds the new P1 NVMe drive offers are impressive, and we look forward to accelerated boot ups and game loads. Plus, with some games now taking almost 100GB of space, the extra storage the new P1 SSD offers is most welcome. We’re excited to be installing these drives into our Team FNATIC systems.”
“We’ve been making SSDs for over a decade now, and we’ve watched computing habits change dramatically over that time,” said Teresa Kelley, VP & GM, Micron Consumer Products Group. “The need for more system speed and storage has never been more important than it is today. That’s why we’ve paid special attention to our customers’ real-world computing tasks and designed the Crucial P1 SSD to deliver all the performance, capacity, and features they need at an affordable price point.”
The drives are available through your local authorized reseller and have recommended prices of US$109.99 (CT500P1SSD8) and US$219.99 (CT1000P1SSD8).
