One of the Largest Storage Manufacturers Worldwide

Crucial is backed by Micron’s expert quality and engineering innovation.  Micron has produced some of the world’s most advanced memory and storage technologies for 40 years.


The Crucial P1 is the newest series of M.2 drives, with capacities ranging from 500 GB to, soon to be, 2 TB.  The Crucial P1 SSD comes equipped with Micron quad-level cell (QLC) NAND, enabling increased NAND density at a lower cost, providing a huge capacity at an affordable pricing model.


For performance, the drive did well when considering the target audience and comparing it to another QLC product in the same segment.  In 4K random read and write, the P1 was triumphant against the 660p with 364K IOPS read and 237K IOPS write.  In sequential 64K read, the P1 was extremely dominant with 599MB/s, and only barely fell behind in sequential 64K write with 1.6GB/s.  With VDI Boot and Initial Login, the two drives were basically equal, showing very little difference in results.  The P1 did, however, fall short in VDI Monday Login with a peak of 20K IOPS before falling off, giving the 660p a win with this test.  Overall, the Crucial P1 drive didn’t disappoint in the QLC SSD segment.


Despite the gaming positioning, the drive really should be viewed as a solution for mainstream users wanting the benefits of flash but the economics of hard drives.  When looked at through that lens, the Crucial P1 offers increased speeds over hard drives or older SSDs and satisfies end users seeking reliable storage at a fair price.  The P1 is definitely the clubhouse leader for this new breed of QLC drives.
