Here we get our first look at the XP941 128GB, and there isn't much to look at. This is a 2280 part, so it's 22mm wide and 80mm long. There are a few notebooks on the market that can use this size, but I suspect more desktop users will adapt M.2 in the early stages.

There isn't much happening on the back other than some power control components.

The UAX controller is paired with a Samsung DRAM package that is 256MB. The specifications for the XP941 show a 512MB DRAM buffer, but after looking at the model numbers, we found the two larger capacity size drives use 512MB and the 128GB model uses 256MB.

The flash is 19nm MLC from Samsung. The 128GB drive uses just two packages of 4-plane flash.
