JMicron JMF667H Reference Design (128GB & 256GB) Review

Back in 2008 and 2009, JMicron was a relatively big name in the SSD industry. Many OEMs were using their controllers as there weren't many alternatives and JMicron had very alluring pricing. However, as soon as SandForce entered the market in late 2009, JMicron faced issues. Their controllers had major problems with performance compared to SandForce, and that ultimately lead to many OEMs switching to SandForce's controllers.

We got reference design samples straight from JMicron with a brand new firmware, so read on to see how JMicron stands today!
