MSI has further expanded its SPATIUM SSD lineup with the addition of the new M450 Gen 4 NVMe SSDs which are aimed at the mainstream segment.
MSI SPATIUM Goes Mainstream With M450 Gen 4 NVMe SSDs: Up To 1 TB Capacities, 3600 MB/s Read Speeds & DRAM-Less Design
Press Release: MSI is announcing the launch of a new Gen4 PCIe NVMe model to its SSD category – SPATIUM M450 PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2. This new product allows MSI to continue to refine its identity as a high-performance PC brand and grow its product ecosystem by expanding SPATIUM, our high-performance storage category. Our SSDs are built with high-quality, high-density 3D NAND flash that delivers the best compromise of performance and endurance for professionals, content creators, and gamers.
SPATIUM M450 was developed to meet the expectations of mainstream SSD consumers. Its PCIe 4 interface offers fast speeds up to 3600 MB/sec sequential read and 3000 MB/sec sequential write speeds that allow users to enjoy rapid file transfers and short loading times. Available storage capacities are 250 GB, 500 GB, and 1 TB. M450 supports a comprehensive range of data error correction features including LPDC ECC and E2E Data Protection, providing a high-rated TBW (Terabytes Written) for excellent durability and longevity backed with a limited 5-year warranty.
