Crucial's 1TB P5 Plus PCIe 4.0 SSD is now available for under £100
Moving forward, storage will becoming an increasingly important factor for gamers, especially as now standards like Direct Storage become adopted on the PC platform. Many modern games already recommend SSD based storage solutions, and current-generation consoles only allow their newest games to be installed onto SSD storage. Simply put, if you are investing in storage for your new and future games, you should be looking into NVMe SSD storage.
Today, Crucial's 1TB P5 Plus SSD model has become available in the UK for under £100. This SSD is a PCIe 4.0 storage solution that is PlayStation 5 compatible (if a heatsink is installed), and offers PC users sequential read speeds of up to 6,600 MB/s. That's a great price for a fast SSD.
One of the primary benefit so of SSD storage is its ability to deliver faster loading times, allowing gamers to get into their games faster and for loading screens within games to be minimised. SSDs allow gamers to spend less time waiting and more time gaming. As SSD adoption increases, SSDs will become important during gameplay as well, as slower storage mediums could lead to in-game stutter and other performance issues if games start to rely on SSD-level loading speeds during gameplay.
Crucial's P5 Plus 1TB SSD is a great SSD at a very low price. It is a great budget option for those who desire PCIe 4.0 storage without an overly high price tag. Below we have included an affiliate link for this SSD on Amazon.
