Here’s one that most of you probably weren’t expecting. Stopping by the Apacer booth here at Computex 2015, Apacer showed off several PCIe Gen 3 x4 SSDs in the M.2 as well as the 2.5″ form factor. These appear to be using an Apacer branded controller along with Toshiba A19nm flash. The 2.5″ SSD also contains full power loss protection which suggests that it’s designed for the enterprise while the M.2 drives appear to be designed for client applications.

According to the spec card, the SSDs will support NVMe 1.1. The M.2 22110 and 2.5″ models will be capable of up to 2500MB/s sequential reads and 1,200MB/s sequential writes. The M.2 2280 is slightly slower at 2,500MB/s sequential reads and 720MB/s sequential writes.

The most curious thing about this drive is the Apacer branded controller. As far as I know Apacer doesn’t design their own controllers. According to industry sources, this controller is actually a re-branded Phison PS5007 which is actually sourced from Toshiba.
