Crucial has just launched its fastest PCIe 5.0 SSD, the 14.5 GB/s T705

Crucial has revealed their fastest SSD to date, the PCIe 5.0 T705

Crucial were one of the first companies to launch a PCIe 5.0 compatible SSD with their T700 SSD, which delivered users sequential read speeds of up to 12 GB/s. These speeds are far in excess of what any M.2 based PCIe 4.0 SSD are capable of. Now Crucial has cranked up their SSD speeds further with a new drive called the T705.

With fast Micron 232-layer 3D TLC NAND and Phison’s PS5026-E26 SSD controller, Crucial’s T705 SSD can deliver users sequential reads and writes up to 14,500 MB/s and 12,700 MB/s (up to 1,550K/1,800K IOPS random reads and writes) respectively. This makes the Crucial T705 one of the fastest consumer-grade SSDs ever produced.

The T705 will be available in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB forms, both with and without a heatsink. For a limited time, a white 2TB version of this SSD will be available. This model features an exclusive white heatsink to suit the aesthetic preferences of some PC builders.

Crucial’s fastest Gen 5 SSD just got faster

The T705 SSD is available in capacities up to 4 TB and features a premium black aluminium and copper heatsink that dissipates heat without noisy fans or liquid cooling, takes full advantage of Microsoft DirectStorage and is backward compatible with Gen 3 and Gen 4 motherboards. A non-heatsink version is also available for use with a motherboard heatsink. For a limited time while global supplies last, a 2 TB Crucial T705 Gen 5 SSD with an exclusive white heatsink is also available and was meticulously designed to meet the aesthetic preferences of enthusiasts and gamers, harmonizing perfectly with white motherboards and PC components.

The Crucial T705 Gen 5 SSD also provides:

  • Faster gameplay and reduced game load times than Gen 4 SSDs with Microsoft DirectStorage
  • Compatibility with Intel Core 13th and 14th Gen CPUs and AMD Ryzen 7000 CPUs

Crucial’s new T705 SSD will be available for purchase next month from March 12th. The drive will feature a 5-year warranty and will be available through a broad range of PC retailers.
