Dubbed the Micron 2550 NVMe SSDm. the company claims the 2550 is the world’s first SSD to ship using 232-layer NAND, a type of non-volatile storage technology
It is being targeted for laptops and desktops, because it can enable faster, more responsive applications across gaming, consumer, and business client devices.
Micron claims the new drive will enable sequential read performance of up to five gigabytes per second as well as sequential write performance of up to four gigabytes per second.
It claims that the Micron 2550 SSD's technology, including "predictive cache optimisation", can improve users’ experiences.
It will launch next year and will not be the new best thing for very long. SK Hynix has announced a new memory chip that will enter mass production in the first half of 2023 and will reportedly boast the “world’s first 238-layer 512Gb TLC 4D NAND”, snatching the world record away from Micron for the most layers in a NAND drive.
