Micron 2450 512Gb NVMe technical review

Posted on February 19, 2023 by Raymond Chen

Micron's 2450 SSD works on PCIe M.2 4.0 x 4 bus. Detailed characteristics of this NVMe on our page.

Micron 2450 512Gb NVMe technical review

The 2450 comes equipped with Micron 3D TLC flash memory. Therefore, it becomes quite clear that the bottleneck in the Micron 2450 is not social NAND memory, but a rather weak Phison PS5019-E19 controller. However, with parallel load memory cleanup processing, it's pretty good. This drive also available in 256 Gb and 1 Tb capacities.

Performance and benchmarks

Drive works on PCIe M.2 4.0 x 4 expansion standard. The presence in the SSD specifications of the mark on the support of the modern PCIe 4.0 interface does not mean anything in itself - this is the conclusion we must first formulate based on the results of our acquaintance with this SSD. Do not think that PCIe 4.0 is like some kind of quality mark.

Endurance and warranty

Micron gives 3 years of warranty from the date of shipment.

Micron Portfolio of Client SSDs


The Micron 2450 has no DRAM in their controller Phison PS5019-E19. Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) in their controller help to increase input/output performance and endurance.

The Micron 2450 512Gb due to the low density of memory chips may function with no further cooling systems. Some motherboards or laptops designed with thermal pads above and below the drive to improve productivity during times of high loads.

The Micron 2450 works on M.2 4.0 x 4 high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard. The memory type is Micron 3D TLC. It has only 3000 Mb/s writing and 3600 reading speeds, that is pretty slow.
