Crucial is preparing T705 SSDs with speeds up to 14,500 MB/s

Crucial was one of the first to mass-produce PCIe 5.0 consumer SSDs last year. Its debut SSD T700 provides speeds of up to 12 GB/s for sequential read and write. This figure significantly exceeds the capabilities of PCIe 4.0 standard drives, but is far from the limit of the capabilities of the PCIe 5.0 standard itself. Crucial is going to get closer to the latter with the help of the new SSD T705 series.

It has been revealed that Crucial is developing the T705 SSD, which will offer sequential read speeds of up to 14,500 MB/s, making it one of the fastest PCIe 5.0 SSDs on the market. According to the leak, the new product will be offered in versions with and without a radiator. In addition, the SSD will be released in a special version equipped with a white heatsink.

It is currently unknown which memory controller is used in the new Crucial T705 SSD model. For example, the same Crucial T700 drives use the flagship first-generation Phison E26 controller. It can be assumed that the new product uses the same controller, but faster memory chips, similar to the reference SSD Phison E26 Max14um.

According to the leak, the Crucial T705 will use 232-layer TLC 3D NAND flash memory chips from Micron, Crucial’s parent company. The fastest model of the Crucial T705 will be the 2TB version, which will offer sequential read speeds of 14,500 MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 12,700 MB/s. The series will also include a 4 TB model, which will be slightly slower than the 2 TB version, and a 1 TB version, which will be slower than the others. However, all three new products will be significantly faster than the first PCIe 5.0 drives, which offered speeds of up to 10–12 GB/s

The cost of Crucial T705 drives is unknown. There is no information yet about when the new product will go on sale.
