The Edge NextGen M.2 1Tb has no Dynamic Random-Access Memory or data about it is not known. Dynamic Random-Access Memory makes drive work faster, but also more expensive.

The Edge NextGen M.2 due to the low density of memory chips able to function without further heat sinks. Some motherboards designed with thermal pads below or above the drive to improve performance during times of high loads.

The Edge NextGen M.2 has maximum write speed 1600 Mb per second, read speed 2705 Mbps. SSD operate on Silicon Motion SM2262 controller and PCIe 3.0 x 4 interface standard. The NAND memory type is TLC.
