Crucial brings higher capacities and speeds to its P2 lineup with 1TB and 2TB models

Crucial has just expanded its P2 SSD lineup, offering PC builders new high-capacity models to fill up their entry-level NVMe SSD lineup. These SSDs utilise QLC NAND, offering users excellent value for money, especially given their SATA surpassing speeds.     

These new 1TB and 2TB SSD models offer higher speeds and storage capacities than their 250GB and 500GB counterparts, delivering gamers the storage capacity that they need to store an extensive library of titles. 

All of Crucial's P2 series SSDs ship with five-year warranties, and when compared tot heir P1 series counterparts, the P2 series offers purchasers faster sequential read and write speeds, more than earning their new P2 designations. 

When comparing their 2TB models, Crucial's P1 M.2 SSD offered purchased sequential read/write speeds of up to 2,000MB/s and 1700MB/s respectively. With the P2, Crucial offers 2400MB/s sequential read speeds and sequential write speeds of up to 1900 MB/s. 

Crucial's P2 series of SSDs are due to start shipping to retailers soon, promising users "All the speed you need at a price that won't break the bank." The table below details the specifications and pricing of Crucial's P2 series. Performance-wise, Crucial's 1TB and 2TB models sit at the sweet spot of performance and affordability.

I might nab the 2TB model for my 2021 build. It's funny how these NVMe drives are actually no more expensive than the couple of high capacity SATA m.2 drives that are available.Quote

We are now at the stage where low-end NVMe controllers are cheap enough that there isn't much of a difference between SATA and NVMe when it comes to pricing anymore.Quote

Next problem is then running out of slots and PCI-e lanes for them. Especially on mainstream boards / setups.Quote

Yeah, but if you needed more there will be PCIe adaptors.

TBH, most folks don't need more than two M.2 SSDs, and new motherboards cater for that. I don't see PCs having fewer PCIe lanes in the future.

It will be interesting to see how things evolve.Quote
