PNY Optima 240GB SSD
PNY has a large online and retail presence so I wouldn't be surprised to see the Optima line at Best Buy or other retail stores. PNY put together a nice retail package that gives us enough details to take a second look.
Inside we found the drive and a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter bracket.
Here we get our first look at the actual drive... that only costs $89.99 right now. I'm still surprised by the price and excited because I suspect this will break new ground and be several people's first SSD.
The PNY Optima is a 7mm drive that ships with an adapter to 9.5mm if you need it.
Inside we found a form fitted case that acts as a cooling device for the flash, controller and DRAM.
There are sixteen Micron 20nm flash packages that use 128Gbit die, eight on each side of the PCB.
Our second look at the Silicon Motion 4-channel SSD controller and the NANYA DRAM buffer above the controller.
