Micron recently announced that the new 9400 NVMe SSD is in production as of the beginning of 2023. This drive will serve as the replacement to the previous 9300 series that is EOL (end of life) as of 2022.
SATA SSDs have been popular for a long time as a replacement for HDDs
Around the turn of the century disk drive manufacturers started the transformation of previous disk drive interfaces to SATA. If your application was boot drive or system disk, the choice for interface for one drive would be SATA. In 2008, advancements had been made on the SATA interface to reach speeds of 600 megabytes per second (MB/s) which was referred to as SATA III.
Micron’s 1300 Series Client SATA solid state drives are now End of Life (EOL), and customers are asking about the migration path for SATA SSD users.
Customers looking for the latest and greatest NVMe SSD from Micron are all asking the same question: When will the 7300 be available to order?
If we were to take a guess, we'd say the official announcement of a target release date is right around the corner.
During the third quarter of 2019, Micron announced its highly anticipated 7300 series NVMe SSD – the future of mainstream NVMe storage for the masses. After its release, the 7300 will be Micron’s latest long-life, high performance endurance drive for enterprise storage.
