    Default More SSD stuff...

    All,

    In my daily perusal of the Interwebs looking for great articles to sustain hopes in my <5 Years til the end of Spinners Years bet with Sandy, I ran across a couple more interesting articles on SSD's:

    This one: A fresh look at storage performance with PCIe SSDs - The Tech Report - Page 1 is a bit dated (31 March!), but gives a great kind of general overview of the state of current drives, including the crazy fast Intel PC D3700 800GB PCI-E drive, and a couple of (sadly AHCI) M.2 drives.

    To followup, there's also a review of the new Intel SSD 750 (NVMe enabled) PCI-E drive here:Intel's 750 Series solid-state drive reviewed - The Tech Report - Page 1

    Frankly, if you need an excuse to justify the X99 to yourself (or your significant other), the SSD 750 might just be it!

    Oh, and for further perusal: http://www.anandtech.com/show/9145/s...-now-available note that an NVMe edition is apparently scheduled for July (buried in the comments on the article).

    I just hope NVMe prices fall as fast as Sata has. It is astonishing how the move away from ACHI performs

    Another review of the Intel 750 1.2TB NVMe PCIe Gen3 x4 AIC SSD:

    Sadly, it's a good bet that "with NVMe" is going to be a sales differentiator for a little while at least. With all these vendors releasing their first or second M.2 devices without NVMe, there's going to be corporate pushback to make money on the non-NVMe models for a little while, so NVMe will end up being in the "PRO" or Super Duper models for awhile I'd guess. Probably at a price in excess of $.50/GB.

    Of course until more Z97 and X99 boards pick up NVMe support in their firmware...

    At this point though, I'd settle for cheaper non-NVMe with larger capacity in 2.5" SATA form factors. BX100 in 1TB <$100 would be beautiful. Then performance in M.2 and PCIE form factors....hell, I'd pay a premium for that.

    And here's what it takes to do 2GB/s RW without NVMe: G.SKILL Phoenix Blade 480GB PCIe SSD Review | ProClockers

    Would be nice in an X99 machine though. Throw one of those 14 core 28 Thread Xeons (Intel® Xeon® Processor E5-2683 v3) in there with it, and I bet I could reprocess a Blu-Ray in 10 minutes.
