Not long ago, we wrote about the Corsair Neutron base model with new 22nm SK Hynix flash. Today Chris walks us through the flagship GTX model that now features new 19nm Toggle flash from Toshiba.

Corsair Neutron GTX 2013 Edition Drives




Since this is more of a retake, we're just going to skim the surface of the Neutron GTX packaging and bundle.




This has been Corsair's main SSD package design for a while now and it gives us quite a bit of information all around the package.




The inner packaging looks good. The desktop adapter bracket is separated from the drive so nothing can get scratched during shipping. You get a set of mounting screws and a paper warranty manual.




Diving straight into the case, from left to right, we have the 120GB, 240GB and 480GB. The two smaller capacity sizes use Samsung DRAM and the 480GB uses Micron. The DRAM capacity scales with the drive capacity.




The Link_A_Media Devices controller is the same for all three drives, LM87800AA.




Most of the time when we run across Toshiba NAND it's BGA, but Corsair chose to use TSOP packaging on the Neutron GTX. This is 19nm Toggle Mode flash, the good stuff.




All three capacity sizes use two-DRAM buffers for caching table data.




We're starting to see more Samsung DRAM used in SSDs.




All three capacity sizes have 16 NAND flash chips, eight on each side. This is important, especially on the 120GB model because of interleaving, a method of increasing performance.
