Micron releases Crucial m2-nvme ssds with qlc-nand




Micron releases P1-ssd’s with qlc-nand memory under its Crucial brand name. Three models appear in the line of pci-e-nvme ssds with m2-form factor, the largest of which has a storage capacity of 2TB.

The 500GB and 1TB versions of the Crucial P1 are available immediately, the 2TB variant will arrive in February next year. The SSDs are made up of Micron’s qlc-nand, with four bits per memory cell. These are pci-e nvme ssds with a m2 2280 form factor that have an advertised mttf of 1.5 million hours. These are Crucial’s first nvd ssds, since the plans for nvme models in the Ballistix series were scrapped in 2016.

The 2TB version reads sequentially at 2000MB / s and writes at 1750MB / s. Random reading and writing does the 2TB variant with 250,000 iops. The 500GB and 1TB versions read sequentially at 1900 and 2000MB / s, respectively, while writing on 950 and 1700MB / s respectively.

The suggested retail prices for the 500GB and 1TB SSDs in the P1 series are around 118 and 236 euros. The ssds are listed at a single store in the Pricewatch for higher prices of 175 and 337 euros, but they are not in stock yet. Presumably the price will drop if the SSDs are actually available and more stores include them in their assortment.

Intel released the first consumer ssds with qlc-nand a few months ago. Tweakers published a review of the Intel 660p SSDs in early October.
