Crucial T700 SSD Preview: Fastest Consumer SSD Hits 12.4 GB/s

The Crucial T700 sample in the lab today is the world’s fastest consumer SSD, at least so far, delivering up to 12.4 GB/s sequential throughput and 1.5 million random IOPS on a PCIe 5.0 interface. That’s 70% faster than today’s top PCIe 4.0 SSDs and 20% faster than current PCIe 5.0 drives.

The T700 is set to be the first in a new set of faster PCIe 5.0 SSDs, offering even better performance than we’ve seen with the first PCIe 5.0 SSDs we’ve previously covered. Phison E26 SSD controller previewThe T700 uses the Phison E26 SSD controller.This is a robust design used in some other 5.0 SSDs and a quick 232 layer TLC This will create the fastest SSD we have tested in our lab. Delivering this level of performance with passive cooling is impressive thanks to a well-designed heatsink, but if the heatsink is removed, the SSD also performs well on a motherboard that properly covers his M.2 heatsink. increase.

The drive is DirectStorage enabled for maximum performance in games that support this feature. Crucial provided an early T700 sample of his for testing. The drive will be available in the next few months (by the end of Q2). Let’s see what they look like when they arrive.
