    Daddy still wants his pMEM to smoke that 8GB/sec / 1.5m iops figure (which i doubt is sustained under any real world workload).

    30TB is nothing to sneeze at though. They are banging on about dual-port NVMe too, so thats nice - it means that this is really destined for SAN's, not Individual Servers. Bring on FC128 and 100G Ethernet.

    *edit*

    Hurr, boring.. The register says its *way* less than 8GB/sec, 1.5m iops (this is probably the theoretical cap for 8x PCIE4.0) - a measly ~3ish GB/sec and 400k iops. Still, bolt enough of them together and go to town.

    That link from Register was outdated(Feb 2018, https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/02/20/samsung_30tb_ssd/), I've updated OP was new links. :)

    PM1733 will do 3+GB/s ofc, cos even Samsung 970 EVO Plus(PCIe 3.0) SSD can do 3.5GB/s, and all current PCIe 4.0 SSDs can do ~5GB/s.

    Maybe I'm old, but it doesn't seem all that long since 36gb 10k rpm drives were the kings.
    Thus it shouldn't take too long for a version of these to fall into the consumer space, although hopefully a good long while before they're needed as C:\ due to windows bloat :p

    I'll reserve opinion until I see 2 things, the QD1 latency results and what a 100% full drive performs like.

    C'mon, you know the only important metric is how fast does it load your Steam library!

    I've given away all my 36GBs, but still have a 74 in the cupboard. Right next to the plexi top 150GB :leet:

    I had a 74GB 3.5" and 300GB 2.5"/3.5" version. The 74GB version was the King for a good long while but the 300GB came out only a little while before SSDs started to take off.


    As for the OP, I don't really care how fast it is (as fat as a good SATA drive would be OK) , I just want 4-5 of these to replace my 24 HDDs. I could move to any cases I wanted then.
