The RunCore Pro V 100GB SSD
Double the Flavor, Double the Fun. At least that is how the commercial went back in the '80s. RunCore made good on their promise from CES to allow us to get in a RAID Report for the Pro V drives and we will get that online for you real soon.
Here we see how our drives arrived. Western Digital and Seagate also send over products without their retail package, so we are pretty used to this.
Here we get our first look at the RunCore Pro V. As you can see, the gold case is now gone, lost to the Kylin II, but the silver brushed aluminum packaging is identical except for the color. This is also the same case that was used on the Pro IV Indilinx Barefoot based products we looked at last year. It is a very sturdy case for an SSD.
On the back we found all of the additional information for the Pro V. The model and serial number are also located here and we found something else interesting, too.
On the back of the drive we found the same 500mA at 5 volts rating; this is the same as the G.Skill Phoenix. The Phoenix used older Samsung M Die flash that uses more power than the Intel 3Xnm flash used in the Pro V. When we get back from Computex one of our main goals is to start measuring power draw for SSDs.
On the side we found standard mounting connectors for the Pro V.
The SATA power and data connectors are also located in the standard configuration, so you will not have a problem installing the Pro V in your desktop with an adapter or notebook.
I have yet to see this PCB before in the other SandForce drives we have reviewed. Here we see the SF-1200 controller in the middle and eight Intel flash modules surrounding it.
On the back side we see that this is actually a RunCore PCB with their name silk screened on it.
