    That's 'today'. When Optane RAM becomes available (soonish), SSD's will be shown for the dogs they are. ;)

    From your same link:

    See:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/intel-optane-3d-xpoint-p4800x,5030-9.html


    And the 'negative' in the second quote above? The 7 core/15W spec'd DC P4800X is being slightly improved (BM 'scores') by a 60W Mangstor MX6300-270TS with an 100 core processor. :rolleyes:


    This is a niche product today - ground zero - gen 1.

    When this tech hits the streets for us normal humans to play with Intel will have fundamentally changed the compute landscape, again.

    Today; it has already achieved that for many enterprise customers and already (over half a year...) for it's Super Seven. ;)

    Correct. Today... All depends on your usage, and the price you have to pay(New tech is always more pricey). But it will be good in the end when prices get more normal and we can opt for sizes for your usage-want.

    Agreed. But the performance this tech gives 'now' is worth the price it commands.

    In both the AnandTech and the Tomshardware reviews, it gives roughly 8-40 times the performance (depending on the metric you're tracking...) at a mere 2x the cost. This is a bargain. Particularly against power intensive versions like the Mangstor which go for a few pennies less per GB of the Intel offering. As for capacity? Patience for a couple of months is all that's needed.

    I love how the graphs are doubling in less than a year from the S3610 to the P3600 to the P4600... the 4K R/W 70/30 graph is especially impressive.

    Performance hasn't stagnated, contrary to the spread of the news of it's death...

    See:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-ssd-p4550-p4600-dc,34301.html

    I don't like to use PCIe or U2 based SSD's for my workflows - SATA3 is more than enough for the $$$/power/longevity tradeoffs.

    When these spec's come to M.2 (version 3.x) SSD's at (much) greater than ~512GB capacity, that will be great for mere consumers too.

    Yeah; I know; these are data center focused products. Doesn't mean we don't need that kind of (read) performance affordably too.

    Will the consumers go for the more expencive Optane disks if ssd's prices vs. Optane gets too big? Or will Intel follow after and drop the prices for Optane as well?
    SSD Prices are dropping Significantly

    If you are in the market for an SSD, now might be a good time to be looking at one. I was just performing some checks and you will notice that prices on popular SSDs have dropped significantly. You can find a 500GB Crucial MX500 for 100 euros.

    Prices for M.2. NVMe devices seem to be affected as well, above the Samsung SSD 970 EVO 500GB, M.2 In all fairness, Samsung dropped the price right after release. But yeah, it started at over 200 bucks, and now can be spotted in the 160 Euro region. Prices, of course, vary per region and country. But again, if you are in the market for some NAND storage, now might be a good time to look around a bit.
