Crucial is one of the biggest players in the SSD market because of their ability to use their own NAND chips and DRAM manufactured by their parent company Micron.



Almost exactly one year after the Crucial P5, Crucial has released the Crucial P5 Plus, which adds support for the blazing fast PCI-Express 4.0 interface to double theoretical bandwidth throughput. While the P5 used the Micron DM01B2 controller, the P5 Plus is built around the DM02A1—note the sequential increase from "1" to "2." The new SSD also uses the brand-new 176-layer B47R 3D TLC NAND chips from Micron, which we first encountered in our Phison E18 + B47R preview article. A LPDDR4-4266 DRAM chip provides 1 GB of memory for the mapping tables of the SSD.

The Crucial P5 Plus comes in capacities of 500 GB ($110), 1 TB ($180), and 2 TB ($370). Endurance for these models is set to 300 TBW, 600 TBW, and 1200 TBW respectively. Crucial includes a five-year warranty with the P5 Plus.
