The ADATA Blackbird Prototype 4Tb has no dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) or information about it is unknown. Dynamic Random-Access Memory in their controller help to improve endurance and input/output performance.

The ADATA Blackbird Prototype 4Tb due to the high density of memory chips you need to install of extra heat sink. This would reduce temperature of the memory chips and controller. Some motherboards from the factory has additional cooling below or above the SSD for better productivity during times of heavy loads.

The ADATA Blackbird Prototype has sequential write speed 12000 Mbps, sequential read speed 14000 Mb/s. It run on SiliconMotion SM2508 controller and M.2 5.0 interface standard.
