Crucial just released the successor of the now 1.5-year-old P1 NVMe SSD. The new P2 SSD offers slight performance improvements, while most of the parts seems to remain changed.

The P2 SSD transfers data through a PCIe 3.0×4 interface. Although the manufacturer or type of the memory are not confirmed officially, it is expected the P2 to have the same 64-Layer 3D QLC NAND flash as the old P1. It is advertised to reach maximum read/write speeds of 2100 MB/s and 1150 MB/s for the 250 GB variant, 2300 MB/s and 940 MB/s for the 500 GB. The increases in performance suggest a change in the memory controller, but the actual model is still unclear.

The new P2 NVMe SSD is only available in two smaller capacities (250 GB and 500 GB) at the moment, which both have a rated MTBF of 1.5 million hours and endurance of 150 TBW. A 5-year warranty is provided as well. The 250 GB version is priced at $54.99 USD (MSRP), while the 500 GB is at $64.99 USD (MSRP).
