HP Z Turbo PCIe SSD
Our pair of Z Turbo SSDs arrived in a HP Z820 workstation that HP asked us to use to test the drives. HP used a custom M.2 PCIe to PCIe x4 adapter to hold and change the connector of the custom Samsung XP941.
HP's firmware is UXM61H1Q, which is different from the firmware shipped with the drives from RamCity, and even the firmware found on the Sony VAIO notebook that shipped with XP941 SSDs.
A series of dip switches at the top of the adapter are not documented, so leave these alone. The drive does have a two-pin connector that can connect to the HDD status LED in your system.
The back bracket allows air to pass over the card, and exit the rear of the system.
Slots on the back of the card also allow air to circulate around the SSD. HP's custom adapter can work with other M.2 PCIe based drives. Here we also see mounting points for different sized M.2 drives, such as 2260.
Here we see Samsung's UAX three-core, ARM-based PCIe to flash controller. To the right of the controller is a Samsung LPDDR2 (low power DDR2) package with 256MB of capacity.
The flash is Samsung's 19nm MLC Toggle 2.0.
