Crucial P1 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD Review

Crucial made us wait for a long time with its first M.2 NVMe SSD but here it is, the latest and the fastest Crucial SSD, simply called P1.

Since it’s Crucial’s first NVMe SSD then we can count on some new features which we will describe in this article.

I already know the results but I guess that many of our readers are curious to see how the P1 SSD performs. We will test the SSD on the AMD Threadripper platform and also on the Intel Coffee Lake.

Let’s not make this introduction any longer but before we will show the test results, here is a product description and the specifications so we know what we will test.
