The Drive

The drive conforms to the dimensions set forth by the 2.5" form factor. It is made from metal which improves its durability. Please note that its thickness is down to 7 mm from the regular 9 mm thickness of a drive. Thinner drives are a requirement by Intel's Ultrabook standard, so the Corsair Neutron GTX is ready for these notebooks.

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

On the PCB you will find the SSD controller in the center surrounded by eight flash chips. The smaller chip in the top-right corner is DRAM memory for the controller.

Corsair is using the new LAMD 87800 flash controller.

The eight flash chips are produced by Toshiba on a 24 nanometer process.
