ADATA SP910 512GB SSD

ADATA put together an attractive package for the Premier Pro SP910 series. The window on the front allows us to see the drive inside, and the text on the front of the package shows the features.

ADATA lists some performance information and some general information about the SP910 on the back of the package.

The drive is well packaged, with the accessories in a separate compartment in the package.

The accessory package includes a desktop adapter bracket, screws for mounting the drive, two paper manuals, and a 7mm to 9.5mm adapter (not pictured). Users will need to go online to download ADATA's SSD Toolbox and Acronis True Image HD; both downloads are available on ADATA's website.

Here we get our first look at the Premier Pro SP910 512GB SSD.

The back of the drive lists the model number, serial number, and a key for Acronis.

This is the 7mm z-height SSD, so it will fit in the latest Ultrabooks that require a thin drive.

Inside we found eight ADATA labeled NAND flash packages, a DRAM package, and a Marvell controller.

The controller is a Marvell 88SS9187 eight-channel model that's been on the market for several years now.

The DRAM is DDR3-1600 in 512GB density. That's an unusually small DRAM buffer for a 512GB SSD.

The flash was packaged by ADATA, and is synchronous MLC.

All of the surface mount components are on one side of the PCB, so there isn't much to look at on the back of the drive.
