AMD Radeon R7 240GB SSD
AMD used the same physical box type that OCZ used on the ARC 100 Series. The graphics are different though since this is a different product.
The back of the package shows some performance data as well as a list of features. Here you will also find an OCZ logo so AMD and OCZ are not hiding their partnership.
Inside the package, we found three paper manuals, one specifically for Acronis. We also found a desktop adapter bracket and mounting screws.
Here we get our first look at the drive. AMD used a 7mm z-height case for the Radeon R7, and like other OCZ SSDs, the case is made from an aluminum alloy. It's a very strong and sturdy design that also doubles as a heat sink for the controller.
The part number, model number, and serial number are located on the back of the drive.
As mentioned previously, this is a 7mm design so the Radeon R7 will work in nearly all desktops, notebooks and Ultrabooks.
Unlike the ARC 100, this SSD ships with a desktop adapter bracket.
The controller faces the cover so the cover acts as a heat sink for the controller.
Inside, we found the Indilinx Barefoot 3 M00 controller paired with two Micron DRAM packages and sixteen A19 flash packages.
The Barefoot 3 M00 is OCZ's current flagship flash controller. This is the same controller found on OCZ's Vector 150 SSD and uses a higher clock speed than the M10 found in Vertex 460 and ARC 100.
The flash is Toshiba's new A19 that uses a die size of 19mm x 19.5mm. This is Toshiba's second generation 19nm flash - the first generation had a die size of 19mm x 27mm.
The 240GB model we're looking at today has two Micron DDR3-1600 DRAM packages. Together, both packages provide 512mb of buffering capacity.
