This exciting product is the result of years of listening to our customers and developing techniques that integrate decades of Micron innovation with the newest technology.
User experience is key
With the Micron 2550, we focused on the key elements required to deliver a superior user experience including outstanding performance, power efficiency and reliability. Greater performance means you can more swiftly load your applications, create content, save documents, edit videos and use your PC to its greatest potential.
You can do all this with better power efficiency, as well. Imagine you are a remote worker who wants to spend some time at the park with your children and get work done at the same time. The Micron 2550 SSD provides battery-friendly active idle power consumption of less than half a watt so you can extend your time and continue to get work done – all with greater performance than in prior generations of storage.
Outstanding performance for your daily computing needs
The Micron 2550 provides up to 5,000 MB/s sequential read and up to 4,000 MB/s sequential write performance2, which enables applications commonly found on mainstream notebooks, laptops and desktops to run faster and be more responsive.
The Micron 2550 also includes features designed to facilitate rapid responses from your storage such as predictive cache optimization, which actively manages data reads and writes. This enhanced performance is totally automatic—integrated intelligence for optimal performance.
Our customers also demand performance that improves the responsiveness of real-world applications and activities such as web browsing, 3D gaming, video editing and file copying. The PCMark® 10 storage benchmark simulates traces from these real-world applications and every-day activities to assess the performance of storage. Each test simulates tasks such as starting popular games, copying files, using office productivity applications and even booting Windows 11. The full suite of tests is shown in the table below.

The benchmark produces an overall score as a measure of storage performance ― where a higher score is indicative of higher drive performance.
In our lab testing, the Micron 2550 consistently provides performance that surpasses the competition in PCMark 10 Storage benchmark scores.3 The relative PCMark Storage 10 scores of the 512GB and 1TB versions of the Micron 2550 compared to its competitors are shown below in Figures 1 and 2.
Micron’s innovations, such as predictive cache optimization, improve users’ experiences and establish new category zeniths for PCMark 10 Storage benchmarks. Individual PCMark 10 Storage category tests reveal that the Micron 2550 SSD transfers files up to 112% faster, runs office productivity applications up to 67% faster, loads major games up to 57% faster, and runs content creation applications up to 78% faster than comparable competing products.4
Power efficiency and increased battery life
The Micron 2550 SSD provides power-efficient storage that enables you to get more battery life from your work and home devices. Consuming under 2.5 milliwatts during sleep, under 150 milliwatts of active idle power and less than 5.5 watts during active/read write – the Micron 2550 is power efficient and designed for low power consumption for daily computing needs.
Great reliability and endurance
The Micron 2550 includes a standard 3-year warranty and is highly reliable, with impressive endurance, which allows you to store huge amounts of data daily, for years, without worry. For example, the 1TB version of the Micron 2550 has a 600 terabytes written (TBW) endurance rating. This means you can write over 164GB to your SSD every day for 10 years – a lot of data and endurance for your daily needs!5 It’s also designed with a mean-time-to-failure (MTTF) rating of two million hours.
Affordable performance to speed your all-day computing
Providing a superior user experience with the right combination of performance, power efficiency, reliability and endurance for users such as students, business teams, casual gamers and content creators, the Micron 2550 is the perfect SSD choice for your all-day computing needs.
