    Oh so sneaky indeed.
    The article is pretty consistent for one of them (let's call it X). Other sources of information point another similar (Y).
    Going with the fact it has DRAM I think it's possible it's Y. and not the one quoted by Guru3d (X) as there is no point in putting the controller that doesn't require DRAM and also putting DRAM there when the DRAM would be the part they cut for cost saving.

    I think I answered the survey wrong but I also think it's correct if I go with the article.

    Good luck to all! I learned something from the investigation for the survey.

    Edit: switched from "option" based description to "X/Y" to try not to confuse anyone as I was not referring to actual options in the survey.

    Damn, I wish I read your comment before I answered. I'm 99% sure I got it wrong. I recently got a Crucial 250GB but you can never have enough of them sweet SSD GBs. Oh well, good luck to you guys.

    I don't see what's sneaky about it. Either you follow what was written in the article or none of the answers are right.
    EDIT:
    Though, there is 1 tiny piece of information I found that is contradictory, once looking at the datasheets.

    I'm using three MX500 SSD's in my main rig and they are really powerful and fast. 5 years warranty is also nice. I would gladly use one more in my laptop though so I'm going to try my luck. Thanks for the chance! :)

    I forgot I had adblocker on your site. Will be Disabling it since you're one of the best tech sites for many many years. Merry Christmas from America and thanks for all your good work and putting your readers first when it comes to questions with benchmarks.

    Man, for sure I failed to answer correctly on this one. Meh, nevertheless, thanks Guru3D for the morning adrenalin rush, my morning coffee taste best when I have a Guru3D contest to solve.
