Fujitsu F100 512GB SSD

We found an image of the retail packaging through a retailer in Taiwan. Our early sample was a bare drive intended for a preview article that introduces Fujitsu to the rest of the world, outside of Asia.

We brought back a number of products from Computex, including many bare drives. Our F100 512GB fared the trip well, but there are a few imperfections in the label. This is due to the rough handling during travel, and not an issue with Fujitsu's quality.

The label on the back shows the part number, as well as the serial number, capacity, and government regulation markings.

The F100 has a 7mm z-height, so it fits in new Ultrabook designs that require the ultra-thin design.

Inside, we found a full-size PCB with a four-channel Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller. Four Intel flash packages reside on each side of the circuit board.

Intel flash ships on all Fujitsu consumer SSDs.

The F100 uses a single 512MB NANYA DDR3-1600 DRAM (256Mb x 16) for a buffer.
