We're all about receiving free performance upgrades, which is exactly what Crucial's offering with the latest firmware update for its m4 solid state drive series. The new firmware supercharges the m4 series with faster boots, improved write latency, better PCMark Vantage benchmark scores, and other enhancements just a few mouse clicks away.
According to TomsHardware , Crucial is touting up to a 20 percent increase in sequential read speeds, saying it's like "having your cake and eating it too." We couldn't dig up that specific claim from Crucial (we're waiting on clarification from the company), but did uncover the official release notes with the following changelog:
The firmware applies to all four capacities in the m4 line, including 64GB (CT064M4SSD2), 128GB (CT128M4SSD2), 256GB (CT256M4SSD2), and 512GB (CT512M4SSD2). You can download the firmware here .
