The Crucial RealSSD C300
The Crucial RealSSD C300 has been pictured several times since CES. Here you get to see another shot of the front.
The back of the drive holds all of the product information. The serial number leads us to believe that there are at least 630 other C300s ready to ship out to customers when the drives go on sale any day now. The firmware on our drive states 0001; at CES the drive listed firmware 0005 but it is important to remember that the CES drive was a prototype.
At the side we see that the C300 has all of the mounting locations where they should be.
Standard SATA power and data connectors are also where they should be, so you will have no problem installing the C300 in your notebook or desktop with the appropriate adapter.
The RealSSD C300 uses the Marvell controller and Micron BGA flash.
The first thing we noticed right from the start is that the drive doesn't use double stacked flash even though our sample was the largest offered; 256GB.
Here we get a good look at the Marvell controller.
We found flash on the back of the drive as well. At the top left side we also found the DRAM cache.
