Crucial's high-end P5 series of M.2 NVMe SSDs is now available in the UK and US

Crucial has confirmed to us that their high-end P5 series of SSDs are now available within the US and UK, offering users sequential read speeds of 3400MB/s and capacities of 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB. 

These drives utilise PCIe 3.0 lanes to achieve such high-performance levels, making these SSD speeds achievable on both Intel and AMD-powered systems. At this time, Crucial doesn't manufacture a PCIe 4.0 complaint SSD, making the P5 the fastest drive in the company's arsenal. 

Pricing-wise, the 2TB P5 models costs $399.99 in the US and £392.39 in the UK, with its 1TB counterpart costing $179.99/£175.19 on Crucial's website. These prices are reasonable given the listed speeds of these drives, though other manufacturers do offer cheaper drives with the same capacities.  

When it comes to write speeds, most of the P5 series offers sequential speeds of 3000MB/s, with only the 250GB model failing to reach this performance target. The 250GB model offers users sequential write speeds of 1400MB/s, which while much slower than its larger counterparts is still a lot faster than all SATA SSDs. 

Crucial's new P5 series of SSDs ship with a 5-year limited warranty and support for operating temperatures as high as 70 degrees celsius. At this time, Crucial hasn't revealed its retail pricing for these new drives. 

  

    Inspiration comes fast; don’t let ordinary performance slow you down.?The Crucial P5 SSD delivers impressive speed and data protection with sequential reads up to 3,400MB/s.

Memory and storage are crucial – your system won’t work without them.

Guessing these are TLC drives? I wish manufacturers would make it easier to find out. Even the product PDF on their site does not say.Quote
