FAQ with our Micron FAE, Keith Peterson

Our specialized Micron FAE, Keith Peterson, answers a few of the most asked questions regarding the transition process from the 2450 SSD to the new 2550 SSD.

Q: What is the difference between the obsolete Micron 2450 and the new Micron 2550 series?

A: The Micron 2550 uses the new 6th generation 3D 232-layer NAND beyond the Micron 2450 5th generation 3D 176-layer TLC NAND. This new series also provides an improved performance in sequential reads, sequential writes, random reads, and random writes over the previous generation Micron 2450. The Micron 2550 continues to provide the same important features such as SLC & TLC caching architecture, NVMe 1.4c, DRAM-less w/HMB (Host Memory Buffer), Host-Controlled Thermal Management (HCTM), support for TCG Opal 2.01+ & Pyrite 2.01, power loss signal support, thermal SMART data via SMBus, basic management command (BMC), FW activate without reset, and sanitize block and crypto erase.

Q: What form factors and capacities are available in the Micron 2550 product series?

A: The Micron 2550 is available in 22x30mm, 22x42mm, and 22x80mm form factors and comes in a variety of capacity options ranging from 256GB to 1TB. These options provide OEM system designers with the flexibility to build PCs with the right mix of performance, size, weight, and battery life.
