MacBook Air SSD/Flash Memory Specs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, I know that the iFixIt tear down reveals Toshiba flash chips on the 11" MBA, but I was curious to know the following specs on the 13" MBA...
  • Flash Type: SLC or MLC
  • Number of Channels
  • Write Cycles
  • Does Apple use different suppliers for the different capacities/models (i.e. Samsung, Hynix, etc.)

I could make some guesses from the benchmark tests, but would like to have hard specs.

I tried contacting Apple, but the only thing they would tell me is the capacity available for purchase. I also don't have the guidelines to reference the flash specs based on the model of the Toshiba flash.

Thanks in advance.

It's MLC, and four flash chips means four channels. Write cycles are probably standard for MLC but the Toshiba controller they're using is good at wear leveling.

At least, the 64GB one only has four flash chips.

See the Anandtech review. He does discuss the flash storage and does several interesting benchmarks.
