Micron Introduces Industry’s First 2TB 22mm x 30mm PCIe Gen4 Client SSD

Published

on

Micron Technology this week announced that it has begun mass shipping the world’s first solid-state drive that uses Micron’s 176-layer QLC NAND flash memory, also a world first.

The new memory is said to provide industry-leading storage density and optimized performance for a wide range of data-intensive applications. It is also suitable for servers, but the Micron 2400 drive in question belongs to the client segment. The company also announced that 176-layer QLC NAND memory will be used in select Micron Crucial consumer SSDs and shipped as components for use by other developers and manufacturers.

According to Micron, 176-layer QLC NAND memory outperforms previous-generation Micron memory by 33%. Read latency reduced by 24%. It is the only commercially available QLC flash memory that combines a charge trap architecture with CMOS logic under the cell array.

The Micron 2400 SSD is the world’s only M.2 2230 SSD with capacity up to 2TB. This drive is 63% smaller than current 2TB M.2 2280mm drives. It is equipped with a PCIe Gen4 interface and supports the NVMe 1.4 protocol.

The sequential read speed reaches 4500 MB / s, sequential write – 4000 MB / s. Performance on random access operations in read mode reaches 650,000 IOPS, in write mode – 700,000 IOPS. The line also includes 512 GB and 1 TB variants. All three are available in M.2 2242 and 2280 form factors. A 512 GB drive is 150 TBW, a 1 TB drive is 300 TBW, and a 2 TB drive is 600 TBW.

What video card is needed for such a screen? BOE showed a display with a frame rate of 600 Hz

What video card is needed for such a screen BOE

BOE is working on the industry’s first 600Hz LCD panel. The network got frames from the official video, which demonstrates a laptop with a similar screen.

What video card is needed for such a screen?  BOE showed a display with a frame rate of 600 Hz

Details are at a minimum. It is known that the screen diagonal is 16 inches with an aspect ratio of 16:10. The laptop itself is based on one of the GeFoce RTX video cards.

Such a screen, by itself, will be aimed at gaming laptops. But it is still completely unclear when it will appear in production models. For example, BOE showed a 27-inch 500-Hz display back in January, but so far such monitors have not appeared on the market.

On the other hand, you need to understand that the increased frame rate of the screen is good when the number of frames per second in a particular game corresponds to this frequency. And to achieve 600 fps is possible only in fairly old or very simple games from a graphical point of view when using very productive video cards.

No more $100 GeForce RTX 3060. Used video cards skyrocketed in price at times

No more 100 GeForce RTX 3060 Used video cards skyrocketed

It looks like the market for used GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards is slowly moving away from ridiculously low prices.

According to the WCCF Tech resource, a month after the transition of Ethereum to Proof-of-stake, the market was flooded with adapters at bargain prices. For example, the RTX 3060 could be bought for as little as $100. Of course, this is a card after mining, but this is often not a sentence. However, these prices are no longer available.

No more $100 GeForce RTX 3060.  Used video cards skyrocketed in price at times

On eBay, the RTX 3060 is now asking $300 on average, and the RTX 3080 Ti is $800 instead of $370 a couple of months ago. Not only is this an increase of two or three times literally in a month or two, but we are also talking about prices close to the prices of new 3D cards!

The source, of course, does not know the exact reasons for this situation, but suggests that the matter may be the depleted stocks of miners who sold cards for next to nothing, although this is unlikely. Another version is that the ultra-cheap cards were simply bought by speculators. In any case, the situation is rather unusual so far.
