Here we get our first look at the Strontium Matrix Series drive. The labels are on opposite sides from what we are used to seeing. On the bottom side shown here, the capacity size and model type are listed.

The back of the drive has a printed label with the model and serial number. If you look past the laser print like sticker, you can see the Micron sticker underneath.

On the side we see the all familiar Micron case design that has the mounting points where they should be.

The SATA power and data connectors are offset as they should be.

Inside we found a Marvell 88SS9174-BKK2 controller and sixteen Micron 25nm flash chips.

There are eight NAND flash chips per side of the PCB. On this side we also see the Micron cache buffer chip.
