The Intel 905P is DRAMless storage or information about it is not known. DRAM in their controller help to increase endurance and input/output performance.

The Intel 905P 480Gb due to the low density of memory chips can run without additional cooling systems. Some motherboards or laptops already has additional cooling above and below the SSD for improving productivity during high loads.

The Intel 905P has write speed 2200 Mb per second, read speed 2600 Mbps. It works on Intel EAU01D76 controller and PCIe 3.0 x 4 or U.2 2.5" high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard. The NAND memory type is Intel 3D XPoint.
