It uses a mini-PCIe 'blade' style SSD. Based on previous buying patterns my best guess it will be a Toshiba. Its what they have used in the past.

What will be really interesting is if its TLC or MLC...as Tosh is getting into the TRI Level Cell 19nm ONFi NAND bizz...and I wouldnt touch a TLC drive with a 1000ft pole.

Edit: Its rated speed...is meaningless. By removing the SATA bottleneck its easy to get even crappy drives 'up to' 1GB/s read with LARGE files...in very short bursts.
