Micron working on MX300 SSDs

Micron has just launched two new PCIe NVMe solid-state drive lines – the 7100 and 9100 series – but unfortunately there aren’t any consumer grade drives there. To remedy the situation the US company will release a new consumer-grade SSD line, called Crucial MX300, later this year.

An interesting fact is that the Crucial MX300 line will come into waves – the first wave will arrive on July 19, 2016, while the second wave will come on August 16 this year. The drives, which will be launched on July 19, will feature models with capacities of 275 GB, 525 GB and 1050 GB in the popular 2.5-inch form factor and a single M.2 model with a capacity of 275 GB. In August the lines will be enhanced – the 2.5-inch line will get a 2 TB model, while the M.2 line will enjoy two new SSDs with capacities of 525 GB and 1050 GB.

The upcoming Crucial MX300 line is expected to feature TLC NAND flash memory made by Micron. Performance-wise the line will reach 530 MB/sec of sequential read speed and 510 MB/sec of sequential write speed as well as 92K and 83K IOPS while reading and writing. The drives in the line will support AES encryption with 256-bit keys and Micron’s Momentum Cache intelligent data caching technology. In addition the Crucial MX300 series will have 1.5 million hours of MTBF and a 3-year warranty.

There are no details on pricing as of now except that the 2.5-inch 525 GB model will cost EUR 200. The Crucial MX300 family will be officially unveiled during Computex 2016.
