The new M600 SSD offers "class-leading" power efficiency, according to Micron. The SSD draws less than 2 milliwatts (mW) in sleep more, and averages 150 mW during active use, which can help extend laptop battery life.
Micro said the M600 also features a unique write architecture that helps the drive last longer. The company claims the SSD has "enough endurance to write 220GB a day, every day, for five years," which it says will help alleviate fears of SSD wear-out.
