The Seagate 600 Pro comes in a 2.5-inch 7mm metallic casing and features a robust anti-intrusion system, making it nearly impossible to open the SSD without destroying the case.

We observe the four yellow tantalum caps underneath the controller, which comes with a thick thermal pad. These provide enough power to flush the DRAM cache and commit all data in-flight down to the NAND. Six metal blocks rise up from the case to rest on the thermal pad and controller, allowing for easy heat dissipation into the thick metallic casing. This provides the SSD with a longer lifespan in high-heat scenarios.

The Seagate 600 Pro has eight packages of Type C Toshiba 19nm MLC NAND. These are 64GB packages with 16k page sizes. Two Micron DRAM chips totaling 512MB of capacity flank the LAMD LM87800 controller.

 

 

Seagate 600 Pro Specifications

 

The Seagate 600 Pro is powered by 19nm Type C Toshiba MLC NAND and the LAMD Amber controller, providing an UBER of 1 per 10^16. Tantalum capacitors provide protection from host power loss issues, and 512MB of cache is used for internal drive management. A wide range of capacity points provides a scalable solution for those seeking different requirements of performance and overprovisioning. The 600 Pro also boasts tremendous IOPS-per-Watt efficiency that leads even the most robust flagship-class SSDs.
