    Got to play with one of these today. Some quick benchies below. Sequential transfer speeds are behaving erratically but the random access performance is consistently phenomenal. Literally twice as fast as 850 Pro for 4k random access! :Pirate:

    enthusiast target, so hopefully cheaper than their P3x00 enterprise gear :thumbup:

    am interested! :D

    i think its OS dependent. Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Linux

    I'm pretty sure BOOTING is mobo bios dependent (i.e. does it support NVMe booting).

    'regular' use i.e. the OS seeing the hard drive is covered by Win8.1.

    At least that's what I've read.

    My trouble is my mobo has a BIOS update where the manufacturer lists 'Added NVMe support' but fails to clarify what the word 'support' means LOL

    If they come in under 500 bucks for the smaller ones it will be very hard to resist an upgrade, as I currently rock a patchy 840 EVO, so itching for an excuse to get rid.

    Drivers are native in 8, but there is apparently a driver available to allow booting in 7. Something similar to a RAID driver, I'm assuming?
    I'll definitely be buying one soon. Price is fabulous for such performance.

    I just installed the SM951 in my AsRock x99m Killer, micro build.

    SM951

    Click to view full size!

    Almost 2000MB/s sequential Reads and 1500MB/s writes

    Boot times and game load times are incredible. I thought about the Intel 750 but this guy saves heaps of space and is a little better in the Anandtech review for client based usage.!

    Can you clone a SATA SDD to one of these via the normal methods or is there more involved?

    This makes the PCIe SSD space a lot more interesting, from the reviews I've read so far the 750 performs better than a Revodrive, costs less and has an extra 160GB storage. I'm looking around for a good database drive (MySQL) so with its high IOPS and price point the 400GB 750 is a good contender.

    Dear god those readings are ridiculous. This may the first step along the path to a sad end to the art of interesting loading screens.
