Micron's shopper SATA SSDs for the OEM market make the leap to 96-layer 3D TLC NAND flash reminiscence with the brand new Micron 1300 SSD. This replaces the Micron 1100 SSD, which used Micron's first era 32-layer 3D TLC.
The Micron 1100 was similar to the Essential MX300 client / retail SATA drive, however since then, the 2 product traces have diverge. The Essential MX Collection was used for the usage of Silicon Movement controllers with the MX500 with 64L 3D TLC. The Micron 1100 stopped and infrequently affected retail as a less expensive different accessible by resellers on the grey market.
The Micron 1300 trumps the Essential MX collection with 96L TLC, however has modified little of the 1100 collection – nonetheless utilizing Marvell controllers and providing the identical characteristic set, together with elective TCG opal encryption and safety partial energy failure.

With little efficiency enchancment behind a 6 Gbps SATA connection, Micron is specializing in improved pricing and vitality effectivity for the 1300 SSD, though each will not be effectively quantified by their press launch. We've discovered that Micron's 32L 3D NAND is persistently one of many slowest 3D flash drives ever delivered. It’s subsequently doubtless that the Micron 1300 with 96L NAND will improve efficiency at low queue depths, even when peak energy stays largely unchanged.
The Micron 1300 doesn’t develop the accessible capability vary: as much as 2 TB for two.5-inch drives and as much as 1 TB for M.2 SATA drives. Micron's Datacenter SATA Drives Achieved 8TB With the Similar Marvell Controllers, However Mainstream There's nonetheless not a lot demand for 4TB or 8TB drives within the client SSD market.
The upper finish write endurance scores are moderately disappointing as each 1TB and 2TB fashions are designed for a similar complete endurance of 400TB. Micron allegedly already sells 96L TLC within the just lately launched 960GB Essential BX500. Subsequently, the 1300 shouldn’t be required for unloading 96L low-content NAND. Nonetheless, plainly the low endurance scores are merely as a result of an absence of market stress. This reveals that the OEM market is completely different from the SSD marketplace for residential clients.
