A 2TB Solid State Drive bearing the Apple logo has reportedly been spotted in a Chinese factory by BrightSideOfNews.

While touring the facility on a completely unrelated subject, we encountered something very interesting – an initial run of Solid State drives bearing a logo which is very recognizable in the West - Apple Inc. The fruity company from Cupertino remained silent on the strategy with their professional line of products, Mac Pro. They also keep on making the iMac as thin as humanly possible, using the same components as on their notebooks.

But seeing a 2TB Solid State Drive with an Apple logo on it opens very large ground for speculation. Given that we were not able to learn more about the parts in question, we have to leave it at that. But from the looks of it, the 2TB drives used industry standard 3.5” form factor, full height (just like your regular 3.5” spinning drive) and a SATA connector (not SAS or some proprietary port).

The site hypothesizes that the drive might be intended for the 2013 Mac Pro redesign which has been promised by Apple. If the machine were to offer 4 hard drive bays that would mean up to 8TB of Solid State storage would be supported for one machine.
