Crucial P1 M.2 NVME SSD CrystalDiskMark Benchmark Results

Normally, I don’t expect that these SSD would actually hit their advertised speeds. A few MB/s shy from the advertised speed is acceptable. It’s better if they actually meet or surpassed it. But it is totally unacceptable if the performance is far from the advertised speeds.
