Layout, design and features …
Here you can see the front of the small Crucial P1 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD. By the way, a special sticker made of thin copper sheet metal for better temperature dissipation of the controller was omitted, but it’s not necessary in view of the lower temperatures.
Here you can see one of the two Micron NW947 Micron 64 Layer 3D TLC NAND components of this SSD with a total capacity of 1000GB. The differences between QLC, TLC, SLC and MLC have already been explained in the Windows Practical testing of the Crucial BX200 480GB SSD. Under the sticker you will also find the Silicon Motion SM2263EN controller IC and a Micron D9STQ cache device.
Here you can see very nice the SMD LED near the M.2 pins, which lights up green when there is activity.
The back looks pretty empty on the 1TB P1 from Crucial. There one would like to heat up the soldering iron or BGA Rework Station to solder the remaining components.
As we would like to provide more information and some practical experience with the M.2 SSD, we have also included a Practical testing page.
