The ADATA Blackbird Prototype 8Tb has no DRAM in their controller or information about it is not known. DRAM in their controller help to improve endurance and input/output performance.

The ADATA Blackbird Prototype 8Tb due to the high density of memory chips requires installation of additional heat sink. This would decrease temperature of the memory chips and controller. Some motherboards from the factory has thermal pads above or below the SSD for better productivity during times of heavy loads.

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