Crucial T700 Gen5 SSD and Pro Series DDR Memory Released

Crucial recently released its Pro series products, including DDR5 and DRD4 memory and a Gen5 SSD we recently reviewed. The DDR5 and DDR4 Pro series memory kits feature an all-black heat spreader design with no RGB lighting. While the DDR5 memory has a black PCB, the DDR4 Pro series uses a classic-looking green PCB. The T700, on the other hand, is Crucial’s fastest SSD to date, offering sequential speeds of up to 12,000MB/s. These new Pro series products are now available, and you can check out more details below from the official news release, including their pricing and availability.


Crucial Unleashes World’s Fastest Gen5 Consumer NVMe SSD and Plug-and-Play High-Performance DRAM Options for Gamers, Creatives and Professionals

Micron Technology, Inc., announced the Crucial® Pro Series, which features memory and storage products designed for gamers, content creators, workstation professionals or anyone needing the benefits of a robust, high-performance computing experience with plug-and-play functionality.

The Crucial T700 PCIe® Gen5 SSD, the marquee product in the new Pro Series category, offers industry-leading sequential read/write speeds up to 12,400MB/s and 11,800MB/s, respectively. Random read/write speeds of up to 1,500K IOPS enable faster gaming, video editing, 3D rendering, or heavy workload applications. Another addition to the Crucial Pro Series is the Crucial DDR5 Pro and DDR4 Pro DRAM offerings with heat spreaders, providing out-of-the-box performance to improve system speed, bandwidth, and responsiveness without the hassle of LEDs and the risks associated with overclocking and latency tuning.

Jonathan Weech, senior director of product marketing for Micron’s Commercial Products Group:
“Today’s demanding applications and user workloads require increased performance, along with greater storage capacity and memory bandwidth, to fully leverage the capabilities provided by the latest generation of CPU platforms,”. “The world class Crucial T700 Gen5 SSD provides unrivaled performance to tackle gaming, UHD/8k+ photo and video editing, heavy workload applications and large data sets. Crucial DDR5 Pro DRAM offers speeds up to 5600MT/s with sleek new heat spreaders that deliver enormous bandwidth under the heaviest of workloads to ensure consistent, maximum performance for gamers and creatives alike.”

The Future of Fast: Crucial T700 Gen5 SSD

Built with Micron 232-layer TLC NAND and nearly two times faster than the previous Gen4 performance SSD with sequential read speeds up to 12,400MB/s, the Crucial T700 Gen5 SSD is designed for Intel® 13th Gen and AMD Ryzen™ 7000 series CPUs and PCIe 5.0 desktops and motherboards. The Crucial T700 SSD takes full advantage of Microsoft® DirectStorage and GPU decompression functionality to render high-resolution textures up to 60% faster, load assets in seconds, and achieve up to 90% less CPU utilization to free up the system for multitasking purposes.

Moreover, the Crucial T700 SSD also features a premium aluminum and nickel-plated copper heatsink to maximize heat dissipation and minimize thermal performance throttling without the noise or failure risks of integrated fans or liquid cooling. A non-heatsink version of the T700 SSD is also available for use with an integrated motherboard heatsink, and both types are backward compatible with PCIe 3.0 and 4.0 motherboards for ultimate flexibility.

No Fuss. Just Fast. Crucial DDR5 and DDR4 Pro DRAM.

crucial ddr5 and ddr4 pro series memory

Crucial DDR5 Pro memory has the blazing speed and massive bandwidth needed to support next-gen multi-core CPUs and unleash performance previously only attainable with extreme performance memory. This innovative technology empowers PCs to multitask better; load, analyze, edit and render faster; game with higher frame rates; uncover data insights more quickly; and enhance productivity to save time and money. Available at a speed of 5,600MT/s, this new memory enables up to 1.75 times the data rates and two times the bandwidth of DDR4 memory.

Crucial Pro DRAM supports Intel XMP 2.0 or 3.0 and AMD EXPO™ on every module to recover performance if the CPU challenges memory speeds in two or four DIMM configurations. Crucial is the only memory brand to offer Intel XMP and AMD EXPO on the same memory module to maximize performance across platforms, providing users with flexibility to integrate Crucial DDR5 Pro DRAM in either an Intel or AMD PC build. The streamlined product SKUs also reduce inventory management complexities for channel partners and distributors.

Crucial DDR5 Pro memory has universal compatibility with 12th Gen Intel Core™ and AMD Ryzen 7000 Series desktop CPUs and above, while Crucial DDR4 Pro DRAM has universal compatibility with 8th to 13th Gen Intel Core and AMD Ryzen 1000 to 5000 Series desktop CPUs. Both Crucial DDR5 and DDR4 Pro memory have black aluminum heat spreaders that offer sleek style in a low-profile module for even the smallest form factor PCs, while also providing heat dissipation.

Pricing and Availability

The Crucial T700 SSD is available now in 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB capacities in both heatsink and non-heatsink M.2 2280 form factor options. Crucial DDR5 Pro memory is also now available in 16GB 5,600MT/s UDIMM modules, while the DDR4 Pro memory is offered in 16GB and 32GB 3,200MT/s UDIMM modules worldwide from leading retail and e-tail stores, commercial resellers, and system integrators.
