Crucial P5 NVMe SSD Review (1TB) – PCIe 3.0′ Late Entry to the Ball

CRYSTAL DISK BENCHMARK VER. 7.0.0 x64

Crystal Disk Benchmark is used to measure read and write performance through sampling of random data which is, for the most part, incompressible. Performance is virtually identical, regardless of data sample so we have included only that using random data samples.

THROUGHPUT

IOPS

Crystal DiskMark results are excellent, displaying write data transfer speeds well above listed spec.  As well, read and write IOPS are very strong.

AS SSD BENCHMARK VER 1.9

The toughest benchmark available for solid state drives is AS SSD as it relies solely on incompressible data samples when testing performance. For the most part, AS SSD tests can be considered the ‘worst case scenario’ in obtaining data transfer speeds and many enthusiasts like AS SSD for their needs. Transfer speeds are displayed on the left with IOPS results on the right.The AS SSD results aren’t as appealing as we might like to see but do get a first look at read and write IOPS which appear to be in the general ball park of listed specs.

ANVIL STORAGE UTILITIES PROFESSIONAL

Anvil’s Storage Utilities (ASU) are the most complete test bed available for the solid state drive today. The benchmark displays test results for, not only throughput but also, IOPS and Disk Access Times. Not only does it have a preset SSD benchmark, but also, it has included such things as endurance testing and threaded I/O read, write and mixed tests, all of which are very simple to understand and use in our benchmark testing.

AJA VIDEO SYSTEM DISK TEST

The AJA Video Systems Disk Test is relatively new to our testing and tests the transfer speed of video files with different resolutions and Codec.

  1. I installed my new Crucial P5 500GB NVMe M.2 SSD just a few days ago, and I’m delighted with it. I had a bit of a problem with recognition by the free Crucial specific version of the Acronis software, but the Crucial support guy was brilliant, talked me through everything while he identified the cause, then emailed me a software patch to get it working, from which point the rest was a doddle. The Crucial Storage Executive management software which is included to download for free from their website is also a significant pluspoint, and has the potential to enable the drive to exceed its stated speed by quite a margin. It wasn’t the cheapest option, though it wasn’t the dearest either, and I feel like I got good value for my money as it’s an excellent drive.
