At Computex, ADATA is planning to unveil some of its first enterprise SSD in recent times, beginning with the SR1020 series. Its 2 TB variant is pictured below. What makes the drive unique, is that it ships in the 2.5-inch form-factor, and supports 20 Gb/s PCI-Express (likely Gen 2.0 x4) interface. The product label doesn't mention how the drive plugs in. No variations of SATA-Express offer 20 Gb/s bandwidth at this time; while this clearly isn't an M.2 drive. The company is also expected to show off its MicroSSD, an SSD-on-a-chip solution, which is a multi-chip module (MCM) of an SSD controller and some NAND flash memory.
