⁉️ FAQ

The ADATA Blackbird Prototype 8Tb has no dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) in their controller or data about it is unknown. Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) in their controller help to increase input/output performance and endurance.

The Blackbird Prototype 8Tb due to the high density of memory chips require the installation of additional heat sink. This lower temperature of the controller and memory. Some motherboards or laptops from the factory has thermal pads below or above the storage for improving performance during times of high loads.

The Blackbird Prototype 8Tb has sequential write speed 12000 Mb/s, maximum read speed 14000 Mb per second. SSD run on SiliconMotion SM2508 controller and M.2 5.0 interface standard.
