The Drive

The drive conforms to the dimensions set forth by the 2.5" form factor. It is made of metal, which improves its durability. Its height is only 7 mm, which makes it compatible with Intel's Ultrabook specification.

Like most recent SSDs, the Corsair Force LS uses the SATA 6 Gbps interface. It is compatible with any older SATA standard, but will in such a case work at reduced performance.

You will find the SSD controller and 16 flash chips on the PCB. A DRAM chip next to the flash controller provides operating memory for the controller.

Corsair uses a Phison PS3108-S8 controller with eight channels.

The 16 flash chips are produced by Toshiba on a 19 nanometer process and have been rebranded by Phison.

A DDR3 memory chip, made by Powerchip is also installed on the PCB to provide RAM for the SSD controller.
