The following images were taken at high-resolution and then cropped and scaled down. The camera used was a Canon DSLR shooting 12 MegaPixel photos. Right then, packaging. The sample we have at hand is the 512 GB  model. Performance is listed as 565 MB/s read and 520 MB/s writes with close to 85 IOPS at 4k random write QD32 aligned disk access with our tested model.


And there it is, this is the 2.5" SATA III 2 TB version all packaged up in the bundle. You should easily be able to place it somewhere in your chassis. Small and light-weight. The SSD supports TRIM making sure your SSD will regain its speed once in idle. The casing as based on aluminum for optimal cooling. 


Obviously you do need to connect it to a proper SATA 3 (6G) controller. Native chipsets ones from intel and AMD themselves are alwasy the fastest. Obviously the drives are backwards compatible towards SATA2 as well, but the bandwidth limitation there would be capped to roughly 270 MB/s (which is still silly fast compared to HDDs).


A proper SATA 6G cable is recommended and should be delivered with your motherboard. We however never ever had issues with a standard SATA2 cable either. It seems that SATA3 cables are a little thicker, that's all.
