A Closer Look
Hardware Secrets Silver Award

Mach Xtreme Technology has decided to use a metal enclosure for the MX DS Turbo which gives it a quality look and feel. The metallic grey finish isn’t quite as exciting as the bright red that Corsair uses for the Force GT, but it still looks very attractive.

To access the PCB inside the drive we must remove the screws in each corner of the drive. The Sandforce SF-2281 controller takes center stage on the top of the PCB alongside eight of the 16 total Intel 29F64G08ACME2 25 nm memory chips.

The eight remaining memory chips are located on the underside of the PCB. Mach Xtreme Technology has chosen to use synchronous memory for the MX DS Turbo, which ensures good performance when dealing with incompressible data. The drive also supports TRIM providing you have a compatible OS installed.
