Lexar NM800 Pro Overview
Looking at the drive itself it is your typical M.2 2280 (80 mm) drive. The drive has a black PCB with a sticker on the main side that lets us know we do indeed have the NM800 Pro drive. For those wondering this drive uses the latest NVMe 1.4 protocol and the 1TB version has a endurance rating of 1000TBW.
Flipping the drive over to the back we can see this drive is a single-sided drive. We do find another sticker on the back that gives us the capacity, and serial number.
Removing the sticker on the main side of the drive we can get a better look at the components on the drive. We have our controller at the end of the drive, a smaller cache chip, and two NAND chips. Lexar is making use of the Innogrit Ranier 12nm G5236 8-channel controller, two 176-layer 3D TLC NAND chips, and a cache chip made by Foresee. Foresee memory is actually made by Longsys, Lexar’s parent company so we can assume the NAND chips are also made by them.
