Brand Crucial Micron's house wakes up in a coma and at the end of it will also offer competition at the high end of the modern storage
DrivesSSD Of Micron enjoy a very positive reputation among users over the years, although it seems that the company has never rushed to adopt modern trends or flood the market with a large number of similar products - as evidenced by the fact that to date we have seen only one model (domestic market) From the company in the modern NVMe standard that accompanies us for several years, and only one model of storage Mobile Quick which was introduced last year.
We are now receiving positive and even surprising news, with the announcement of a pair of new NVMe models designed for different ends of the category - theCrucial P2 which will be an interesting alternative toCrucial Seller P1 andCrucial P5 will demonstrate what the chip maker can do when it invests in its full resources.
Drives Crucial P2 will be offered in a highly competitive volume pair and price tags, not as a replacement for theCrucial P1 sellers but as an add-on for them - when this time the reliance is on chips NAND 96-layer, XNUMX-layer TLC configuration, instead of configuration chips QLC The more dense is considered less reliable and high quality.
These drives can only be found at low volumes of 250GB or 500GB, without memory Built-in cache with no encryption support but with modest power consumption and recommended prices of $ 55 for 250GB or $ 65 for 500GB - when to our surprise the performance on paper will be better in the model with the lower volume of the two: maximum reading speed of 2,100MBps, writing speed Maximum 1,150MBps and a random performance of 170,000IOPS in read and 260,000 IOPS in writing in the 250GB version, compared to a read speed of up to 2,300MBps, a write speed of up to 940MBps only and a random performance of up to 95,000IOPS in read and up to 215,000IOPS in 500GB version.
It will be interesting to see the capabilities of the drivesCrucial P2 in practice, compared to the latest generation of 665p drives from Intel that chose to continue using QLC chips, in contrast to its partner in the production of storage chips - and also compared to the great WD Blue SN550 drives where the public is a new and challenging benchmark in storageNVMe The budget.
DrivesCrucial The P5 features far more impressive technical features, thanks to a controller SSD Micron Self-Developing Fruit: You can find them with volumes between 250GB and 2TB with the same chips NAND XNUMXD in TLC configuration, memory Dedicated cache that helps to ramp up random performance and support flooding with eDrive, Opal 2.0 and IEEE 1667 standards.
All USB drivesCrucial P5 will offer a five-year warranty with up to 0.3 write volume per complete drive volume (DWPD) during this period, along with a maximum continuous read speed of up to 3,400MBps, up to 3,000MBps maximum write speed (except for the basic 250 GB model that will provide fast writing Up to 1,400MBps) and random read performance of up to 500,000IOPS per read and up to 430,000IOPS in top-volume writing with the largest volume and price.
We do not yet know the official prices of the P5 drives, but it is likely that we will be able to find them in stores in the near future - and get direct comparisons against advanced based models from home. סמסונג And others.
