The SanDisk Ultra

Here we get our first look at the SanDisk Ultra. We've seen this aluminum case design before with the raised area for the logo on a few other drives. There really isn't much to see on this side other than the product logo.

On the back we found the model and serial number. SanDisk also includes a build date on the back label which is nice. The four mounting points on the bottom are located where they should be.

On the side we also found the proper location for the mounting points, so you won't have any problems installing the Ultra in your notebook or desktop adapter bracket (that must be purchased separately).

The SATA power and data ports are also where they should be.

This is where things get interesting. SanDisk used eight 16GB flash chips for a total of 128GB of capacity. On this side of the drive we only found the SandForce SF-1200 controller.

All of the flash is kept on this side of the PCB. Here we get our first look at SanDisk's own 3Xnm flash.
