2013 Samsung SSD Global Summit - Samsung always likes to talk about the large amount of Samsung components in their SSD products. Off to the side at the show we found a dissected 840. Surprisingly, there aren't too many components needed to build an 840, but I wouldn't want to solder everything together by hand!

Samsung manufactures all of the core components, PCB, DRAM, NAND and more than likely several of the small surface mount components as well.

This is the first time we've seen a SSD apart out in this manner. While not exactly news worthy, it is interesting to see for the first time.

Chris Ramseyer started his career as a LAN Party organizer in Midwest USA. After working with several computer companies he was asked to join the team at The Adrenaline Vault by fellow Midwest LAN Party legend Sean Aikins. After a series of shake ups at AVault, Chris eventually took over as Editor-in-Chief before leaving to start Real World Entertainment. Look for Chris to bring his unique methods of testing Hard Disk Drives, Solid State Drives as well as RAID controller and NAS boxes to TweakTown as he looks to provide an accurate test bed to make your purchasing decisions easier.
