Our trip to the ADATA booth at Computex this year revealed something rather special – this 1.6 TB SSD from ADATA called the SX2000.  Details of the NAND were sparse, but the SSD uses 2 TB total with free space for overprovisioning, the new SFF-8639 (PCIe) for connection and a new LSI controller under the hood.

Unfortunately there was not a working model on display, and this drive is currently aiming at the Enterprise space with no word on release date or pricing.  We were able to find performance numbers, sitting around 1800 MBps in read and write with 200K IOPS in 4K Random Read.

Similarly ADATA also had an M.2 module with similar specifications (up to 512 GB), called the XMP280E:

    Somehow I doubt that the little XNP280 has the same R/W speeds as the 1.6TB drive. That just doesn't make sense considering the number of NAND chips. Copy and paste fail?
