MyDigitalSSD BP3 256GB mSATA SSD Revisited - 3.2 Firmware Update - MyDigitalSSD BP3 256GB mSATA SSD

MDSSD and Phison have a new firmware ready for the S8 SATA III controller. Under normal circumstances we'd expect a small performance increase, but when the promise of a 4x increase was made, we knew we had to see for ourselves.

Our sample arrived in a thick paper package with the drive inside of an antistatic bag.

The drive uses Toshiba Toggle Mode flash, a newer revision of it as well; something we've only seen used with the new BP3 models.

On the other side we found two more Toshiba NAND flash chips and a host of surface mount capacitors and resistors.

From the side we can see just how small the mSATA form factor really is. Many notebook and ultrabooks place the slots for them under the keyboard.
