Chip Component Analysis

SSD Controller

The Silicon Motion SM2263ENG is a fairly new 8-channel flash controller we've seen on other high-performance SSDs, like the ADATA SX8200 Pro.

SSD Flash Chips

The four TLC flash chips are made by Intel/Micron, built using 64-layers on a 3D NAND production process.

SSD DRAM Chip

Two Hynix DDR4-2666 chips provide a total of 1 GB of fast DRAM storage for the controller to store the mapping tables.
