Our sample arrived in the full retail package.

The back of the retail package gives a generic description of the feature set for SSDs, but also lists some performance data for the drive inside.

Here we get our first look at the ADATA Premier SP610.

The Acronis Key is on the back of the drive.

ADATA uses a 7mm z-height, but also included an adapter to make a 9.5mm tall drive.

ADATA also included a desktop adapter bracket so your 2.5" SSD can fit in a 3.5" drive bay.

Inside we found a cost effective design. The PCB is roughly two inches long.

The SP610 uses a Silicon Motion SM2246 controller and NANYA DRAM.

ADATA packages Micron 20nm 128Gbit NAND flash and uses it for both the flagship SP920 and SP610 products.

There are eight NAND packages total so the SP610 takes full advantage of the parallelism offered by the SMI controller.
