Packaging and Content

The Patriot Ignite 480GB M.2 SSD comes is a very simple packaging. It almost appears as if it is a flash drive. You can clearly see the SSD through the clear plastic packaging and the capacity of the SSD is very noticeable.

At the back, you can read the general features of the SSD in different languages.

Closer Look

Inside, you can find the Ignite 480GB M.2 SSD. There are no manuals or screws included.

At the back you can see two of the NAND chips and the Nanya DDR3L 1333  SDRAM buffer chip.

Notice that the M.2 version also uses the same type of NAND chips with the 2.5-inch one which Heath reviewed earlier this week, perhaps just a different batch number. Should we expect the same performance with its 2.5-inch form factor counterpart? We will see on the next page.
