Crucial T705 PCIe 5.0 SSD Leaked, Touts Fastest Read Speeds To Date

PCIe 5.0 SSDs remain a relatively rare item these days, as most PCs simply find no use for it, or the tradeoff in heat was simply not worth the upgrade. However, that hasn’t stopped SSD vendors from developing ever-faster drives – in this leak, the Crucial T705 is touted to be the fastest of the bunch so far.

According to Videocardz, this new SSD will be using Micron’s (Crucial’s parent brand) B58R FortisFlash 232-layer TLC NAND, with the 2TB model in particular sporting the fastest rated performance. According to the spec sheet, the 2TB variant achieves a sequential read speed of 14.5GB/s and a sequential write speed of 12.7GB/s, with random I/O clocked at 1,550,000 IOPS and 1,800,000 IOPS for read and write respectively.

There are multiple variants available, ranging from storage options, to pre-installed heatsinks, and even the heatsink colors. Crucial will offer both heatsink and heatsink-less versions of the drive – and for the ones with heatsinks, the 2TB variant will offer a white-colored “Limited Edition” variant. Meanwhile, the T705 is also offered in 1TB and 4TB capacity, which exclusively comes in black.

Since we’re looking at official images from the company (likely as a result of prematurely opening the webpage to the public), the official launch shouldn’t be far for the T705 SSD. Expect announcements from the chipmaker in the near future, with pricing announcements.

Pokdepinion: Seems like we are reaching the limits in terms of read speeds for PCIe 5.0 drives.
