Crucial T700 PCIe 5.0 SSD Reaches Speed of 12,422 MB/s

Compared to PCIe Gen 4 NVMe drives, the adoption rate of PCIe Gen 5 NVMe is much slower. The launch of PCIe Gen 5 NVMe also promised speeds to double that of its predecessors. Though we have barely seen any drives to do so, even after 16 months since launch, the availability of PCIe Gen 5 NVMe drives is much lower than expected.

With the launch of new platforms from both Intel and AMD, users now have capable hardware supporting PCIe Gen5. There aren’t many options out there besides the only PCIe Gen5 graphics card from a Chinese manufacturer named MTT S80 and a few storage options.

Alongside Gigabyte, Sabrent, and Inland, a new competitor is preparing to challenge the competition for being the fastest storage drive on the market.

Crucial has just launched its new T700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe drive based on the same Phison E26 controller its competitors use. Unlike the Inland TD512 PCIe Gen5 NVMe drive, which uses a heatsink with a loud fan. The Crucial T700 instead will come equipped with a heatsink.

LinusTechTips, a famous tech reviewer from YouTube, got his hands on the Crucial T700 and was able to test the speeds from the new competition. During his testing, the Crucial T700 achieved peak sequential read and write rates of 12422 MB/s and 11858 MB/s, respectively.

Unlike Gigabyte AORUS Gen5 10000 and Inland TD512, the Crucial T700 does not go with excessive cooling, but if the drive can achieve its rated speeds while not going overboard, then it’s a plus.

There is no information on what kind of platform the tech reviewer used for his testing, but either way, the results should be the same on both Intel and AMD. What are your thoughts on adopting the new PCIe Gen5 NVMe standard?
