Micron M600 SSDs
Here we see all four of the samples Micron sent over. In the 2.5" variety, we have the 256GB and 1TB models. The mSATA and M.2 drives are both 256GB capacity drives.
Micron moved away from the dense metal cases found on the consumer Crucial M5x0 series products.
The M600 2.5" drives all ship in a 7mm case so OEMs are able to use the series in Ultrabook designs.
Micron sent over M600 2280 M.2 model. Micron also has a 2260 dual side model that is just 60mm long for very small systems or embedded applications. The M.2 drives use just two NAND packages.
The mSATA model uses the same controller and DRAM as the M.2 drive, but with four flash packages rather than two.
The 256GB drives don't need as many capacitors for host power fail protection. Here we see the pads for more capacitors that would be populated on the 512GB model.
The 1TB 2.5" drive has more capacitors, but still has four empty spaces for more.
The M600 drives all use the Marvell 88SS9189-BLD2 controller. The 9189 is the higher spec successor to the 88SS9187 that has been in use for several years now.
Several companies plan to use the 9189 with TLC flash, but Micron chose to use the 9189 power with 16nm MLC.
The M600 models use Micron DRAM of varying density that scales larger with increased capacity size.
The large 1TB model uses two DRAM packages and sixteen NAND packages.
The 256GB 2.5" drive uses eight flash packages and one DRAM package. The 256GB model also uses a different PCB than the 1TB model.
There are twenty spaces for capacitors, but only five are populated.
