Corsair Neutron Series GTX 480GB SSD
Here we get our first look at the 480GB Neutron GTX. The drive uses the new 7mm z-height form factor so it'll fit in a very wide range of devices including several new ultrabooks. The model and serial number are located on the front label.
There's not much on the back other than the four mounting points.
To get to 7mm Corsair uses a new case design that is made of very thin metal. The drive is very light because of it, but it doesn't feel as solid as the older cases used on the Force Series.
The included desktop adapter bracket offsets the drive so your SATA power and data ports are very close to inline with 3.5" form factor drives.
Neutron and Neutron GTX use Link A Media Devices controller LM86800AA. The controller is paired with Toshiba Toggle Mode flash and two 128MB DRAM chips.
One of the DRAM chips is located on the back of the PCB. We think one chip acts as a buffer and the other stores map data.
Corsair uses 24nm Toshiba Toggle Model flash, but we wouldn't be surprised to see 19nm Toshiba used in the future. Maybe for Neutron Series II?
