    “The SM961 sports very high performance ratings; the 1TB model clocks in at 3,200 MB/s read and 1,800 MB/s sequential write speed, which eclipses every other retail NVMe SSD. In our testing, we surpassed Samsung’s 3,200 MB/s sequential read performance using a corner case test. The drive is capable of delivering up to 3,500 MB/s under ideal conditions, with the right software, when the stars align and the moon is full. The result is the highest we ever expect to achieve with a PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD.
    Samsung spec’d random performance at 450,000 read and 320,000 write IOPS. There are a few snippets from a leaked datasheet, more specifically an image, that suggest the SM961 1TB provides up to 400,000 random write IOPS. We chose to publish the more realistic 320,000 IOPS.”,4608.html


    As much as I want this, I find this would be more than what I need. Mind you, there’s never such a thing as overkill, is there? =P


    I wonder If theres a raid card for these, 4 of these in raid 0 would be hell of a thing.


    Sexy! Can’t wait until these drop in price and become mainstream. Already have a bunch of SATA SSD’s don’t need any more of those.


    It’s a cool $500 bucks
