Micron 2300 Series SSDs include 256GB to 2TB models


Micron 2300 drives use 96-layer 3D NAND flash memory

Along with the 2210 Series SSDs, Micron Technology introduced the 2300 Series drives. These are more powerful SSDs that use a 96-layer 3D NAND flash.

PCIe Gen3 drives are available in sizes M.2-2280. They support the NVMe 1.3 protocol. The series includes 256 GB, 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB models.

All of them demonstrate a sequential read speed of 3300 MB / s. Sequential write speed in the case of the minimum SSD reaches 1400 MB / s, all others provide a speed of 2700 MB / s.

As for maximum performance on random access operations, in write mode the minimum volume drive shows a value of 355,000 IOPS, and all the rest – 500,000 IOPS. Maximum read-through performance is 210,000 IOPS for 256 GB SSDs, 225,000 IOPS for 512 GB SSDs, 400,000 IOPS for 1 TB SSDs, and 430,000 IOPS for 2 TB SSDs. The resource is declared equal to 150, 300, 600 and 1200 TBW, respectively.

Like representatives of the 2210 series, these drives support AES encryption with a 256-bit key and save data in case of an unexpected power outage. In addition to the varieties that support TCG Opal 2.0 and Pyrite 2.0, a third is proposed, which features Microsoft eDrive support.

The manufacturer does not quote prices, but it is obvious that these drives are more expensive than 2210 series drives.
