Corsair Neutron SSDs
Neutron is also one of the few mainstream class SSDs on the market with a 7mm z-height. Companies are quickly jumping to the new 7mm height that's designed for new ultrabooks. The ultrabook market had a slow early adaption thanks to higher than expected prices and a miserable operating experience. I'm sure the global economy played a role, but with Haswell, Intel's fourth generation Core processor on the horizon, sales are expected to skyrocket.
With that in mind, I don't see a reason to purchase a 9.5mm, standard notebook height SSD from this point forward.
Here we see the two drives undressed, the 128GB Neutron on the left and the 256GB Neutron on the right.
Both capacity sizes share the same LAMD LM87800AA controller, the same found on the Neutron GTX as well.
We expected to find Hynix DRAM in the new Neutron since the controller and DRAM came from the same entity, but Samsung DRAM is what we found.
As we've mentioned, the new Neutron uses Hynix NAND. The only difference between the 128GB and the 256GB was the NAND density - both capacity sizes use eight NAND flash chips.
