Micron today added the cost-efficient Micron 1300 SATA solid-state drive (SSD) to its client computing portfolio.
The Micron 1300 SATA is one of the industry's first 96-layer TLC 3D NAND-based SSDs designed to bring performance, drive-level security, advanced thermal management, and extended battery life to mobile, desktop and workstation PCs.
The 1300 SATA SSD is available in capacities up to 1TB (in M.2) and 2TB (in 2.5-inch). The drive delivers sequential reads/writes up to 530MB/520MB per second and random reads/writes up to 90,000/87,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS).
In addition, the Micron 1300 SSD, designed to be power efficient, extends battery life between charges for the mobile worker. It uses 75 milliwatts (mW) of power, which is only 45 percent of the active (read/write) power of an average HDD. The Micron 1300 SSD also supports Microsoft Windows 10 Modern Standby requirements including adaptive thermal management and near-instant transmission to low-power mode. The SSD also offers features to protect data such as asynchronous power-loss protection for data at rest and optional Opal 2.0 self-encryption.
No pricing has been announced.
