Here we get our first look at the RunCore mSATA 120GB drive. You can't see too much on this side with the sticker in place.

Ah there we go - much better. RunCore produces their own PCB for the T50 mSATA. The SandForce SF-2281 controller allows the drive to run at SATA III speeds, up to 540 MB/s which is quite fast. 25nm IMFT flash is also used with the SandForce controller - two on each side of the PCB.

There isn't too much happening on this side of the drive other than the two flash chips.

I really like the adapter that ships with this drive. It allows us to test these mSATA parts on our standard test system.
