The drive features empty pads for the addition of more NAND packages for high-capacity variants. There is also the notable lack of DRAM. LSI SandForce controllers do not require DRAM caching, reducing components and complexity.

The LSI SandForce SF-2582 is flanked by numerous power capacitors. These Tantalum power capacitors flush data to the NAND in the event of power loss. These capacitors are also much more reliable and tolerate heat better than the supercapacitors found on many designs.
