The two new product families are the Micron 3400 and 2450 series client SSDs now provide PCIe 4.0 performance. The Micron 3400 SSD with NVMe™ combines the performance of industry-leading 176-layer NAND and PCIe Gen4. The 3400 has the capacity to manage the most demanding workstation, gaming and corporate PC applications – yet it consumes minimal power.

The Micron 3400 SSD is a future-proof solution that will harness the mammoth I/O loads needed to manage today’s 4K (and tomorrow’s 8K) double- or triple-monitor, work-from-home setups that have blurred the lines between personal and work-related tasks. The PCIe x16 slot has over 64GB/s of bandwidth,
