Chip Component Analysis

SSD Controller

The flash controller is made by Phison, the PS5012-E12S supports QLC and PCI-Express 3.0 x4. It uses eight flash channels and is produced on a 28 nm process at TSMC Taiwan. The main difference to the E12 without the "S" is that the E12S is physically smaller, works with half the DRAM capacity of the E12, and uses a metal case, which helps with thermals.

SSD Flash Chips

The four QLC flash chips are made by Micron, built using 96 layers.

SSD DRAM Chip

Two Nanya DDR3-1866 chips provide 1 GB of fast DRAM storage for the controller to store the mapping tables in.
