The Nighthawk Prototype 2Tb is DRAMless storage or data about it is unknown. Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) in their controller help to improve endurance and input/output performance.

The ADATA Nighthawk Prototype 2Tb due to the high density of memory chips you need to install of extra heat sink. This would decrease temperature of the memory chips and controller. Some laptops or motherboards designed with thermal pads below and above the storage to improve productivity during heavy loads.

The ADATA Nighthawk Prototype 2Tb has maximum write speed 12000 Mbps, maximum read speed 14000 Mbps. NVMe run on SiliconMotion SM2508 controller and M.2 5.0 interface standard.
