Computex 2014 - Angelbird gave us a look at their upcoming Novachips Bugatti-powered SSD.
This is the new Angelbird X2 Wings. This AHCI compatible PCIe card is bootable and utilizes an undisclosed RAID controller to aggregate the performance of two SSDs in RAID. The card can be a bit power hungry, pulling over 75 Watts. There is a embedded power connector to assist with external power. There is also backlighting during operation to appeal to the enthusiast crowd.
The NVS 3600A is a 10 channel controller that works in concert with 256MB of DRAM in this configuration.
On the rear of the PCB we note the Micron NAND on the new Angelbird product.
These portable bus-powered SSDs provide large capacity in a small form factor for mobile users.
