Crucial introduces the P2, the successor to the P1 NVMe M.2 SSD that was introduced in 2019. Not a lot of specifications are known but it looks like this entry-level NVMe M.2 disk uses QLC NAND flash memory and a Phison SSD controller. The main difference versus the P1 is higher performance:
The 250GB model delivers sequential read and write speeds up to 2,100 MBps and 1,150 MBps, respectively. The 500GB model, on the other hand, is capable of hitting sequential reads up to 2,300 MBps and sequential writes up to 940 MBps. Crucial didn't list the random performance for the P2.

Independent of the size, the P2, is rated for 150 TBW (terabytes written) in regard to endurance. As usual, Crucial backs the P2 with a limited five-year warranty. The brand also includes two pieces of software with the P2: Crucial Storage Executive for SSD monitoring and optimization and Acronis True Image for system migration.
Crucial offers a 250GB and 500GB P2 for $54.99 and $64.99, respectively.
