‘World’s Fastest SSD’: Crucial’s T705 tops benchmarks as reviewers rave about its performance – but it’s way too expensive and a RAID-0 setup could beat it

Crucial’s new T705 SSD certainly looks impressive on paper – it claims to be 25x faster than SATA and almost 2x faster than Crucial’s fastest Gen4 SSD, with sequential read/write speeds of up to 14,500/12,700 MB/s.

The drive, which is available in capacities up to 4TB, is designed with Micron’s 232-layer TLC NAND3 and compatible with Intel Core 13th-14th generation desktop CPUs and AMD Ryzen 7000 series CPUs. Additional features include an aluminum and copper heatsink, adaptive thermal protection, and hardware encryption for storage security.
