Crucial sent us something snazzy! It's a SSD, nothing overly new there, but this SSD is different. Quite different really. It's TINY.
You know all those motherboards that come with a dinky little white slot connector on them that says something about mSATA? That's what this drive fits. It's a juicy little thing too, 256GB!
Crucial SSDs are interesting from another standpoint too, Crucial is owned by Micron. Micron is one of the major manufacturers of flash memory as well as system memory. Odds are good that Micron made the cache and the flash chips, we'll check.
Crucial gets some space to talk about themselves now, taken from the About page at Crucial.com
We'll be testing the on our usual test bed, which consists of the following components. An Intel Core i7 3770k processor, Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H motherboard, G.Skill RipjawsX 2133MHz 7-10-7 ram, EVGA Geforce GTX 580 (reference), Antec HCP-850w PSU, Phanteks PH-TC14PE CPU cooler and a Thermaltake Armor Revo chassis.
Excellent. Let's check out the features and specifications next.
