Crucial P3 Plus Gen4 NVMe SSD
The Crucial P3 Plus Gen4 NVMe SSD delivers load times and data transfers that are nearly 9x faster than SATA (3) SSDs and up to 43% faster than the fastest Gen3 SSDs (4) – for a NVMe Gen4 PC build or a NVMe Gen3 system upgrade. Built with the company’s 176L 3D NAND (5), the Crucial P3 Plus has been tested and validated to the standards users expect from one of the world’s leading manufacturers of flash memory. It is a robust storage solution with room to spare for all the apps, programs, files, photos, videos and games high-performance users may require. Additionally, the P3 Plus SSD offers flexible backward compatibility for most Gen3 systems.

Crucial P3 Gen3 NVMe SSD
The Crucial P3 Gen3 NVMe SSD has load times 6x faster than SATA SSDs and over 20 times faster than HDDs (6), while offering performance that is 45% faster than the previous generation (7). Fast bootups, downloads and file transfers make it for DIYers, casual gamers, professionals, entry-level designers – anyone who requires a NVMe on a budget or is looking to upgrade their PC away from older SATA or HDD technologies.

With anticipated availability later this summer, the Crucial P3 Plus and P3 SSDs round out Crucial’s internal and external SSD product offerings, which include the P5 Plus, X8, X6, MX500, and BX500. Additionally, both the P3 and the P3 Plus SSDs will come with Storage Executive management software for performance optimization, as well as free cloning software to ensure installation right out of the box.

The company’sproducts are available on the firm’s website and WW from leading retail and e-tail stores, commercial resellers and system integrators, enhancing system performance and user productivity.

(1) Typical I/O performance numbers as measured using CrystalDiskMark with command queue full and write cache enabled. Fresh out-of-box (FOB) state is assumed. For performance measurement purposes, the SSD may be restored to FOB state using the secure erase command. System variations will affect measured results.
(2) Some of the storage capacity is used for formatting and other purposes and is not available for storage. 1GB equals 1 billion bytes.
(3) SSD speed comparison between Crucial P3 Plus NVMe SSD read speeds of 5,000MB/s and Crucial MX500 SATA SSD read speeds of 560MB/s.
(4) Speed comparison are between Crucial P3 Plus published top speeds of 5,000MB/s and the fastest published Gen3 speeds for NVMe SSDs, at 3,500MB/s.
(5) Micron/Crucial NAND components are subject to change while delivering consistent or better performance according to the product’s specifications.
(6) SSD speed comparison between published Crucial P3 NVMe SSD read/write speeds of 3,500/3,000MB/s and published Crucial MX500 SATA SSD read/write speeds of 560/510MB/s; SSD vs. HDD speed comparisons between published Crucial P3 NVMe SSD read/write speeds of 3,500/3,000MB/s and top preset consumer hard disk drive read/write speeds of 7,200rpm (~156MB/s).
(7) The Crucial P3 speeds of up to 3,500/3,000MB/s are 1.3x and 1.6x faster (respectively) than Crucial P2 speeds of up to 2,400/1,900MB/s.
