"Back at the end of 2021 we took a look at Crucial's P5 Plus Gen4 NVMe Solid State Drive. It was actually Crucial's first Gen4 drive and we liked it enough to give it a 9 out of 10 score. When the drive initially launched it did not come with a heatsink, so if you planned on using the drive on a motherboard without a heatsink or in a PlayStation 5 you were out of luck. Well, Crucial is now offering a heatsink version of the drive for all of those who may want to use it in those situations. This drive is a 100% in-house drive from Crucial so the controller as well as the NAND are made by Crucial / Micron. So we have Micron's 176-layer TLC NAND matched with their proprietary NVMe controller. Crucial rates this drive with sequential speeds of 6600 MB/s read and 5000 MB/s write. Let's see what it can do!"
