Micron Launches its first 1TB SSD at CES 2013-for under $600
Micron on Thursday unveiled its first terabyte-sized solid state drive (SSD) for consumers, named as Crucial M500.This will cost under $600 or 60 cents per gigabyte.
The Crucial M500 SSD uses the latest SATA 6Gbps drive interface and performs at up to 80,000 input and output operations per second (IOPS). The drives sequential read and write speeds reach up to 500 Mbps and 400 Mbps, respectively .If we compare it with the very first 1TB SSD, The Octane delivers up to 560MBps read performance and up to 45,000 random IOPS, but at about $1.10-$1.30 per gigabyte, it retails for well over $1,000.
The 60-cent per gigabyte M500, introduced at International CES, is priced well below the average 80 to 90 cents per gigabyte price of most SSDs used today.
"It is an aggressive introduction for a high-density SSD, where per GB pricing is still over $1/GB," said Ryan Chien, an analyst at IHS.
"The peak performance is impressive as is fitting 960GB of NAND in a 2.5-inch form factor. However, many enthusiasts and businesses have been burned by low-cost consumer drives with poor quality characteristics, and sustained success of products in this segment ultimately depends on latency, endurance, and sustained performance during mixed workloads," Chien added.
The M500 uses Micron's densest NAND flash chips, made with 20 nanometer node lithography. Micron claims the 128Gbit-sized chips are an industry first.
The new SSD also comes with power management capabilities.
