M.2 NGFF (Next Generation Form Factor) solid state drives are space saving high-speed non-volatile storage solutions to be used in upcoming high performance laptops.

Smaller, lighter, and consuming less power – M.2 drives maximize performance and usage in mobile devices when used as a cache drive (in tandem with a HDD) and offer enough storage space to load an operating system as a bootable drive for embedded applications, ultrabooks, and next generation notebooks.

Note: Solid State Drives DO NOT require defragmentation. It may decrease the lifespan of the drive.



M.2 – mSATA Comparison

Where mSATA took advantage of an existing form-factor and connector, M.2 has been designed to maximize the usage of the card space, while minimizing the footprint.
