Crucial T705 PCIe Gen5 NVMe SSD Review

When we looked at Crucial’s initial PCIe Gen5 NVMe SSD product, the T700, last July, it was truly in a class by itself. Since then other manufacturers have brought their own Gen5 SSDs to market, and the T700 now has company at the up to 12,400 MB/s performance level (the Corsair MP700 PRO is one example).

But Crucial didn’t want to give up the crown. Their new T705 promises the highest sequential numbers yet, with up to 14,500 MB/s read and 12,700 MB/s write speeds specified. That’s pretty impressive, and we were lucky enough to get a 2TB sample in for review. Let’s throw it on a Gen5 capable testbed and see what happens.
