Kingston KC2000 1TB M.2 2280 NVMe SSD

The world of SATA based SSD’s is slowly coming to a close with the raw speed and performance of PCIe based drives falling to near price parity.

Intel Optane Memory H10 with Solid State Storage

Intel’s 3D XPoint (pronounced cross point) has been one of the very few of the dozens of annual groundbreaking storage technologies to make it to retail, and the only one in recent memory to actually deliver on the hype. This technology arrived in the form of a 16GB or 32GB M.2 module called ‘Optane’ that could be used as a very high-speed cache for your existing SATA drive. While many enthusiasts argued that ‘high speed’ was a bit of a stretch when mistakenly compared to top end NAND drives that were easily clearing the 3GB/s mark on high-queue depth sequential transfers in synthetic tests, those that could see the difference between apples and oranges saw the more than order of magnitude increase Optane provides in low queue depth random I/O that more closely resembles daily real-world usage.
