Crucial T700 PCIe 5.0 SSD Now Available in US: 12.4GB/sec reads! WOW!

Crucial T700 PCIe 5.0 SSD Now Available in US: 12.4GB/sec reads! WOW!
May 08, 2023

Crucial has just announced that it's opened up pre-orders for its next-gen T700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe M.2 SSD, which has some truly next-gen read and write speeds. We're talking about up to 12.4GB/sec reads, and up to 11.8GB/sec writes... yeah, it's fast. Like, freaking fast.

The next-gen Crucial T700 has become the world's fastest SSD, blasting past the previous high-speed of 10GB/sec (10,000MB/sec) with its truly bonkers 12.4GB/sec (12,400MB/sec) reads. Crucial has worked closely with CPU and motherboard companies to ensure the performance reliability of its new T700 SSD, too, which is now the first Tier-1 mainstream brand with a Gen5 SSD on the market.


There's a premium heatsink included, with Crucial using an aluminium and nickel-plated copper heatsink that maximises heat dissipation, all without the need for a noisy fan or the use of liquid cooling. Crucial also worked with Phison as well as AMD and Intel (and all motherboard vendors) to test its new T700 SSD.

Crucial will be making its new T700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe M.2 SSD available in both heatsink and non-heatsink options, but there will strictly be no active-fan coolers with these beast new SSDs. The heatsink design of the T700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe M.2 SSDs features a double-sided PCB with targeted thermal materials, nickel-plated copper bottom plate, an aluminium plate, and a sleek design that ensures maximum airflow (which you'll need to maintain those nuts 12.4GB/sec+ read speeds!)

Crucial T700 PCIe Gen5 NVMe M.2 SSD details:

  • Sequential reads/writes up to 12,400/11,800MB/s
  • Nearly 2x faster than our Gen4 SSD
  • More than 22x faster than SATA
  • Capacities of 1, 2, and 4TB for more games and UHD/8K+ videos
  • Compatible with Intel 13th Gen & AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs
  • Backward compatibility in Gen3 and Gen4 systems
  • Built with Micron 232-layer TLC NAND
  • Premium heatsink for maximum heat dissipation without noisy fans or liquid cooling blocks (non-heatsink option available)
  • Reduce game texture load times with Microsoft DirectStorage
  • Hardware encryption for storage security with TCG Opal 2.01
