The Corsair Force F40 40GB SSD
Here we get our first look at the Corsair Force 40GB. Smaller capacity doesn't mean a small form factor, the F40 is still a 2.5" form factor drive that will slide right into nearly every notebook on the planet. Capacity information is listed on the front of the drive with the model and serial number.
The back of the drive is void of print information but does have the four standard mounting locations that will give you the ability to mount the F40 into some of the newer desktop adapters.
Looking at the side we also see the standard mounting points that are used widely to mount 2.5" form factor drives.
The back has standard SATA power and data ports.
Normally this section is uneventful but today we have something interesting. I stated earlier that the new 40GB SandForce based drives only have 12 flash modules and not the 16 we have come to expect. Here we see how this worked out. On the top side three modules were removed and only five remain.
On the back we see that seven of the eight modules are remaining. That makes the drive a four channel, three memory modules per channel instead or four / four.
Now let's see what happens with the performance!
