The P44 Pro comes in a small black and blue box. Along with a picture of the drive, the packaging advertises a number of its key features including its 2TB capacity, maximum transfer speed, PCIe 4.0 NVMe interface and 5 year warranty. Inside, you'll find the SSD as well as a small guide containing installation instructions and a warranty statement.

Physical Features:

The P44 Pro uses the 2280 form factor for M.2 (NGFF) SSDs. It measures 22 x 80 x 2.29 mm and tips the scales at a little less than 7g. The drive also has an "M key" edge connector which provides PCIe SSDs with up to 4x lanes of bandwidth.

The P44 Pro is equipped with SK hynix's "Aries" ACNS075 controller. We still don't know much about this PCIe Gen 4 x4 SSD controller besides that it powered by a quad-core ARM Cortex R5 CPU and has eight channels as well as support for NVMe version 1.4.

For the 2TB version of the P44 Pro, Solidigm has opted to use SK hynix's 176-layer 3D TLC NAND flash. If you'd remove the sticker, you'd see that there are two 1TB NAND flash packages on the top of the PCB. The drive also has a single 2GB LPDDR4 DRAM chip that is used for caching.
