Home Business IT Storage & Cloud Storage Crucial launches P1 NVMe solid state drive

Crucial has announced the availability of the Crucial P1 SSD, a storage device that connects via the NVMe PCIe interface. Available in 500GB or 1TB capacities, the PCIe-interfaced SSDs provide an alternative to SATA and other interfaces.

Many users require SSD performance, but are unable to connect via SATA for many reasons.

According to Crucial, the P1 SSD is capable of mixed-mode throughputs of up to 565MB/s, with a composite score of 5,084, which they claim outperforms similar SSDs within the price category.

With sequential read/write speeds up to 2,000/1,700 MB/s the P1 provides consistent performance via hybrid-dynamic write acceleration, a unique SLC cache implementation. The drive offers an MTTF of 1.8 million hours and an endurance of up to 200TB total bytes written, with power usage at an active average of 100mW.

Available in capacities up to 1TB and backed by a five-year limited warranty — or 200TB total write, whichever comes first — the Crucial P1 SSD makes use of Micron quad-level cell (QLC) NAND technology. By storing four bits in each NAND cell, QLC NAND narrows the affordability gap between hard drives and flash storage, enabling increased speeds and capacities at a more affordable price point.

"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, vice-president and general manager, Micron Consumer Products Group. Micron is the parent company of Crucial.

"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."

As with all Crucial SSDs, the system is provided with easy-to-follow installation guidance and Acronis TrueImage software to aid data transfer.

Australian suggested pricing has yet to be determined, US-based pricing is:

CT500P1SSD8 – US$109.99

CT1000P1SSD8 – US$219.99

It would be reasonable to assume the Australian pricing would be around 30% to 40% higher.

The Crucial P1 SSD is backed by a five-year limited warranty, and will soon be available for purchase in Australia through distributors Dicker Data, Tech Data, Bluechip and Leader Systems and in New Zealand through PB Technologies.

A review will be available at some later date.
