The ADATA Blackbird Prototype is DRAMless SSD or data about it is unknown. Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) in their controller help to improve input/output performance and endurance.

The ADATA Blackbird Prototype due to the high density of memory chips requires installation of extra heat sink. It will decrease temperature of the memory chips and controller. Some motherboards already has thermal pads above or below the storage for improving productivity during heavy loads.

The ADATA Blackbird Prototype 2Tb has maximum write speed 12000 Mb/s, read speed 14000 Mb/s. Storage operate on SiliconMotion SM2508 controller and M.2 5.0 high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard.
