The drive conforms to the dimensions set forth by the 2.5" form factor. It is made out of metal to improve its durability and is only 7 mm thick, which ensures it will fit into modern notebooks.

On the PCB, you'll find two NAND flash chips and the controller—a DRAM chip is not installed.
The Silicon Motion SM2258 is a four-channel flash controller; the used XT variant denotes support for DRAM-less SSD designs.
The two flash chips are 64-layer 3D TLC NAND, made by Intel through their cooperation with Micron. Each chip has a capacity of 512 GB.
