While we are just a few days away from the official unveiling of Crucial’s MX100 solid state drive, thanks to a distributor listing the specifications online we now have the full scoop on Crucial’s latest solid state drive.
As we mentioned before the MX100 will be the first solid state drive to make use of Micron’s 16 nm MLC NAND flash memory. Not all models will feature this memory though, the 128 GB drive will have 20 nm chips, while both the 256 and 512 GB versions will pack the 16 nm flash.
All three MX100 drive come in the normal 2.5-inch form factor with a 7 mm thick chassis, while there is a 9.5 mm adapter included. All three drives are powered by the Marvell 88SS9189 controller, have a SATA 6.0 Gbps interface and are backed by a 3-year warranty.
All three drives will have a sequential read speed of 550 MB/s, while the write speeds are 150 MB/s, 330 MB/s and 500 MB/s for the 128 GB, 256 GB, and 512 GB models respectively.
