Crucial, a Micron Technology company takes Micron memory and
puts it to good use. The Crucial P1 SSD is its first PCIe NVMe m.2 product
ideal for laptop and desktop memory upgrades.
The Crucial P1 SSD uses Micron’s quad-level cell (QLC) NAND technology. By storing four bits in each NAND cell, QLC NAND narrows the affordability gap between hard drives and flash storage, enabling increased speeds and capacities at a more affordable price point.

We’ve been making SSDs for over a decade. We’ve watched
computing habits change dramatically over that time. The need for more system
speed and storage has never been more important
than it is today. That’s why we’ve paid special
attention to our customers’ real-world computing tasks and designed the Crucial
P1 SSD to deliver all the performance, capacity, and features they need at an
affordable price point.

Patrik Sattermon, Chief Gaming Officer at FNATIC, said:
We’ve been using Crucial SSDs in our gaming rigs for the past year and a half. The speeds the new P1 NVMe drive offers are impressive, and we look forward to accelerated boot-ups and game loads. Plus, with some games now taking almost 100GB of space, the extra storage the new P1 SSD offers is most welcome. We’re excited to be installing these drives into our Team FNATIC systems.
