Angelbird wrk 512GB SSD
Angelbird took a minimalist approach to the retail packaging.
Here we get our first look at the Angelbird SSD wrk 512GB SSD. At the top you can see the brushing on the aluminum case, the whole drive has that texture, although it's difficult to photograph.
The SSD wrk is a 7mm z-height drive, so it will fit in your new ultra-thin Ultrabook.
I don't recommend you take your SSD apart, but Angelbird made it really easy for reviewers to crack the case open.
With two screws removed, the PCB slides out on rails. This is the first time we've run across a case like this, and it shows the level of detail put into the build quality.
Although a majority of end users will never see the inside of their wrk, Angelbird took the extra steps to use a black PCB for the drive. This is the backside, were we also found four NAND flash packages.
In the front, we found four additional flash packages, making eight total.
The controller is a Silicon Motion SM2246EN, and it's paired with 256 MB of DRAM for cache.
It appears Angelbird packaged NAND die, or went to Biwin to purchase IMFT 20nm flash prepackaged. The 29F512G08 could be either an Intel or Micron part number, Micron shows 26 components starting with 29F512G08CMCAB, but without the next set of letters, we can't look up the fine details on this flash.
