'Micron's 3500 1TB SSD is a four-channel PCIe Gen4 SSD that is faster than "99.9%" of its eight-channel rivals'

Micron's 3500 1TB SSD might just be among the best SSDs ever made – if not the best – having scored 100% on TweakTown and winning its highly coveted Editor's Choice Award.

Launched in December 2023, this 232-layer NAND SSD, which adopts a M.2 2280 form factor, comes in at 512GB, 1TB and 2TB variations, and features a superb Phison E25 controller that can also be found in the Crucial T500 SSD.

The controller fitted into the M3500 also features four-channel PICe Gen4 connectivity, which makes it remarkable given its stellar performs when stacked up against eight-channel alternatives.

'An absolute masterpiece of engineering'​

Crucial is Micron's retail arm, for reference, while Micron builds the SSDs for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The Crucial T500 and Micron 3500 differ slightly in that the latter is configured specifically to be sold with particular hardware units, like those you'd find in our roundups of the best PCs or the best workstations.

The Micron 3500 SSD offers sequential reads and writes of up to 7,000 MB/s and 6,900 MB/s respectively, according to the manufacturer, with testing using CystalDiskMark corroborating those figures.
