I'm confused now.

This Kingdian has DRAM or is DRAMless?
All the SM....XT controllers are DRAM-less. From the photo, it is a SM2258XT, so it is DRAM-less.

Size is correct:

Flash chip is H25QFT8F4A - 4096Gb

4096 Gb = 512 GB

NAND flash is not flawless, there can be a few bad blocks and the other blocks can be used for management by the controller. The reason why it’s sold as 480GB and not 512GB.

The controller is definitely DRAM-less.
