Micron’s new SSDs combine to deliver high-storage capacity, performance, and value

Micron’s new SSDs combine to deliver high-storage capacity, performance, and value

The Micron 2300 SSD is built on TLC NAND

Micron has just announced two new SSD solutions. One that delivers industry-leading 2TB storage capacity with the other delivering performance and value.

Both SSDs introduced today are built on Micron’s 96-layer 3D NAND technology and have enhanced client security features and capabilities for protecting data, with TCG Opal 2.0 and TCG Pyrite 2.0 support.

The two drives also come in the usual M.2 2280 form factor and support the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface.

However, one uses TLC flash memory and the other QLC flash memory. Micron’s previous M.2 form factor SSD was the Micron 2200 that was also a QLC SSD With NVMe support.

Micron 2300 SSD tech specs

The Micron 2300 SSD is built on TLC NAND and is designed for applications that demand high performance and capacities in the M.2 form factor. It can achieve up to 3.3GB/s sequential reads and up to 2.7GB/s sequential writes and comes in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities.

Micro 2210 QLC SSD tech specs

Micron says that their 2210 QLC NVMe SSD bridges the gap between the low cost of HDDs and the performance, reliability, low power and security of SSDs. It can achieve up to 2.2GB/s sequential reads and up to 1.8GB/s sequential writes and supports 512GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities.

There were a number of SSDs launched earlier in the year for use as external storage or internally.  

Neither pricing nor availability is currently available so we will update this page once we get it.
