The performance level when working with arbitrary blocks reaches 650 thousand / 700 thousand IOPS (read / write), and the TBW (Total Bytes Written) indicator ranges from 150 to 600 TB, depending on the capacity of the drive. More detailed characteristics of new products are shown in the table below.
The recommended prices for the Micron 2400 SSD have not yet been announced. Note that M.2 2230 format devices will certainly be in demand among future owners of the Steam Deck portable game console.
