Crucial Updates their BX500 Series with an Affordable 960GB Offering

Crucial has confirmed that they plan to expand their BX500 range with a new high-capacity entry, bumping the series' flagship model from 480GB to 960GB, while offering a price tag of $129/£119. 

The BX500 series initially launched in August 2018, with the 480GB model costing $89.99 at the time of launch, showcasing how far SSD pricing has dropped since then. Now, 2x the capacity is on offer for $40 more, which is great value for PC builders. 

Now, Crucial offer buyers capacities of 120GB, 240GB, 480GB and 960GB, with the BX500 series acting as entry-level SSDs. The BX500 sits below their higher capacity/performance MX500 series offerings. Each model in Crucial BX500 series will offer 540MB/s and 500MB/s sequential read/write speeds respectively.

We know that these new SSDs will utilise Micron's 96-layer 3D TLC NAND alongside an SMI SM2258XT DRAM-less controller. The full range of BX500 SSDs will fit into the standard 2.5-inch form factor with 7mm of unit thickness, making this model suitable for full-sized PC and most notebooks.
