Micron Technology today announced a new solid-state drive (SSD) portfolio featuring support for the NVM Express protocol, bringing increased bandwidth and reduced latency to client computing markets.
The Micron 2200 PCIe NVMe SSD is a vertically integrated solution — including 3D triple-level cell (TLC)64-layer NAND technology, internally designed ASIC drive controller and firmware in an M.2 form factor. This solution is designed for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
The Micron 2200 SSD is delivering up to 3GB/second sequential reads, 1.6GB/second sequential writes, 240,000 inputs/outputs (IOPS) random reads, and 210,000 IOPS random writes. It features dynamic write acceleration that enables burst data writes.
The drive comers in a small size and compact M.2 form factor. It delivers up to 1TB high-capacity flash storage, and its self-governing power feature improves battery life with lower power states that are up to 98 percent more power efficient than HDDs. In addition, the host-controlled thermal management (HCTM) reduces the drive's operating temperature to protect other system components.
The Micron 2200 PCIe NVMe SSD portfolio meets security needs for commercial PCs through its self-encrypting drive (SED) technology. Its encryption for data at rest complies with the TCG Opal 2.0 standards.
The Micron 2200 PCIe NVMe portfolio of SSD drives is available now.
