The Optane Memory module ships in a small blue box that says "OPTANE" in the front. The enclosed module's capacity is advertised on this side of the packaging.

The back of the packaging advertises the enclosed module's M.2 x 80mm form-factor and its Gen3 x2 interface.

Flipping the box open reveals the Optane module is well protected inside of a clear clamshell container.

Contained within the packaging is the Optane module, an instruction guide, a warning leaflet and an Optane Memory decal.

This side of the module's blue PCB houses the drive's 2-channel ASIC controller, two 16GB Optane Memory packages, and various surface mounted components. We will not be removing the factory label because it has a copper layer inside of it. Removing thermal labels is never a good idea because they bend when removed and will never again lay flat over the components as intended. We will just be providing a photo of the front and back of the module.

This side of the memory module is devoid of components.
