back to article Hey mate, are you dense? Why, yes. Yes, I am, says the NAND in Micron's new client SATA SSD

Micron has rejigged its 1100 SATA SSD with denser NAND to produce the new 1300 model. The flash this time around is 96-layer, TLC (3bits/cell) 3D NAND. The 1100 used 32-layer TLC 3D NAND. Both drives are disk drive replacements for notebook and desktop PCs. Like the 1100, the 1300 comes in 256GB, 512GB, 1TB and 2TB …

    75 MEGAWATTS of power?!?!?! Perhaps the MW should be mW instead?

      >75 MEGAWATTS of power

      Only to be used on Gerald Ford Class Aircraft Carriers.

      No, mate, megawatts. Comes with a free* nuclear reactor though!

        Gerald Ford Class Aircraft carrier* comes with two free nuclear reactors.

        *Aircraft sold separately.

    Yep, should be mW but I had to check as I hadn't realised how frugal the power requirement had become! I remember when hard drives were hard drives and you needed proper power supplies to spin them up ...

    180TBW

    That means you can write/rewrite the entire 2TB drive 90 times.

    For most of us... it means that the drive will last longer than your pc.

      Maybe we need to TRIM back our expectations...

      Or if you read the article correctly and ascribe the right TBW which is 400 for the 2TB drive that will be 200 times. However given the amount of windows 10 updates I fear this may not be sufficient over the lifetime of a PC.

        It be plenty for normal home/office use

        most people don't write more than 5-10 terabytes of written data in their lifetime, 2-3 years example

    Is the speed the same for the SATA and the m.2?

      The interfaces are both SATA. The form factors are what is different. M.2 vs 2.5 inch.

      1. Tom 38 Silver badge

        Surprised the m.2 doesn't come in a PCIe/NVMe interface - whats the point of getting m.2 if it is still going to be AHCI - surely 90+% of m.2 slots support PCIe by now.
