Micron launches 2210 and 2300 M.2 NVMe PCIe solid state consumer drives

SSDs are becoming increasingly popular due to their performance benefits and increasing availability. If you are still using a mechanical hard drive, there is probably nothing better than switching to an SSD. You not only see growth in the artificial calibration, but also in real use – it’s an appreciation you can really feel.

Micron has two new DSSs for consumers. The names are 2210 and 2300, the first with the QLC flash and the second with the TLC flash. So, while both NVMe are PCIe M.2 SSD’s NVMe, the 2300 will be faster, while the 2210 will be cheaper. Both can contain 512 GB, 1 TB and 2 TB, but the 2210 is also available with 256 GB.

The Micron 2300 SSD combines the power and density needed to run heavy-duty computing applications in a compact form factor with the reduced power consumption needed by today’s mobile users. For the first time, the Micron 2210 QLC SSD combines the performance of NVMe with quad-cell NAND technology (QLC). It combines NVMe’s high bandwidth with Micron’s advanced QLC technology to provide flash memory capability on hard drives at a comparable price point while consuming up to 15 times less power than hard drives, according to Micron.

Roger Peene, vice president marketing of the Storage Business Unit, explains that ninety percent of the customer platforms will supply NVMe SSDs next year and that the market is growing rapidly in its core and value segments. Our two new customer SSDs, 2300 and 2210, are optimized for each segment. The 2300 offers exceptional performance, while the 2210 offers unsurpassed value for money thanks to Micron’s industry-leading QLC NAND system.

Micron says both readers are currently available, but I couldn’t find them for sale on the internet. Since the company did not disclose the prices, this means that the value is currently a mystery. However, it seems that 2300 is an SSD for amateurs and 2210 for business hunters, so let’s hope that 2210 will be very affordable.
