Here is a Snipping screenshot of the CrystalDiskInfo 4.3.0 SSD and HDD information software, where is immediately noticeable, that the Crucial SSD is now also equipped with a temperature sensor. If this SSD reaches higher temperatures above approx. 75°C, it is able to throttle the SSD speed automatically. But it was not necessary even after dozens of benchmarks. The SSD is detected as CT1024MX200SSD1 rather than CT1000MX200SSD1 – Crucial seems to change from 1024 to 1000 at the last moment.
