I think a year or two will be more likely. Until then, I'll plod along with my Sammy 850.

That's not a bad drive to be going with, lots of space and like I said many times, you would hardly tell the difference!

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

Pros:

Outstanding random performance
Outstanding QoS
Outstanding endurance (based on rating)
It's the fastest thing we've ever tested. Period.

Cons:

Cost

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

It seems there is a lot of detail in installing it. Intel lists BIOS and Windows settings to make. I read you are to test the drive before putting Windows on it to make sure you are meeting requirements first. I read a post in the forum you mentioned and that guy had his running on my board.

BTW, I couldn't wait for Black Friday lol. I am on a roll baby.

Yeah Newegg just got them yesterday, I got a email from them, the 280's are gone already! If you have a good review I'll probably get one after the first of the year.

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

I have great faith in Intel's dependability and having it work well enough to not give problems. I know it probably will be getting driver and firmware updates in the near future but I expect to install it and Windows and then go and forget about it.

I have already used UEFI BIOS and GPT format for my prevous NVMe drives so that should be easy. There are also a dozen Windows settings to enable which I will show sometime. The installation/evaluation document is on Intels website.

Re: Intel Optane SSD 900P 480GB NVME 3D XPoint!

Sooooooo

HDD to SSD Great Improvement 3.0 x relative cost
SSD to M.2 Some Improvement 1.5 x relative cost
M.2 to Optane Good Improvement 2.0 x Relative cost

Improvement: Taste, Touch, Smell. No benchies!

Bottom line - wait till price drops.
