With a price of 70 dollars for 1 TB
Most modern solid-state drives have the M.2 2280 form factor, but sometimes you need a much more compact SSD — M.2 2242. Corsair did exactly that.
In the photo you can see the MP600 Micro model in the specified form factor. The length of such a drive is 42 mm, although there is also an M.2 2230 that is only 30 mm long.
The new product supports PCIe 4.0 and is characterized by data transfer speeds of up to 5100 MB/s for reading and 4300 MB/s — for recording. Performance is respectively 600,000 and 890,000 IOPS. These parameters are typical for the 1 TB model, which also has a resource of 600 TBW.
It remains to add that the new product is based on 176-layer Micron 3D TLC NAND memory and is priced at $70.
