The Crucial P3 is a solid-state drive (SSD) that uses the M.2 NVMe form factor and offers 1 terabyte (1TB) of storage capacity. NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) is a high-performance interface protocol designed specifically for SSDs, offering faster data transfer speeds compared to traditional SATA-based SSDs.
The Crucial P3 SSD utilizes 3D NAND flash memory technology, which allows for higher storage density and improved performance. It is designed to provide fast read and write speeds, reducing loading times and improving overall system responsiveness. However, specific performance characteristics such as sequential read and write speeds, random read and write speeds, and endurance can vary depending on the model and firmware version.
As an M.2 NVMe SSD, the Crucial P3 connects directly to the motherboard via the M.2 slot, eliminating the need for cables. This form factor is commonly found in modern laptops and desktops that support M.2 drives.
