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

Well its here 3D XPoint nvme ssd is here and kicks some serous butt in benchmarks, and you will never wear it out that's for sure. The price is the killer, $599 for a 480 gig and throttles at 65C, but with any airflow that will not be a problem, even if it does throttle its still FAST. Here's the story and a graft of how long it will last....

Your welcome Jim, I was wondering why I've seen some deals on the 960 pros, another reason to get a X299 motherboard or a Z370 WS motherboard going to need more than 16 lanes.

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

Here's another review from Anandtech....

Here's a quote from Anandtech...."Most users- even those with relatively intense storage performance needs - will be better served by high quality flash SSDs like the Samsung 960 PRO."

Who is the Optane SSD 900P for? - The Intel Optane SSD 900P 280GB Review

Think I'll put a SSD upgrade to last and wait to see the way pricing shakes out on this baby. Thanks. No wonder Intel discontinued the 750! Sammy 960 still hanging in there.

This is going to be interesting, less than have the price and more gigs for the 960Pro for a little less performance, same 5 year warranty for both?

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

Those internals on THG review here look identical to my 750 internals.

I just got home from mailing my 960 Pro back to B&H for a full refund and read this post lol. I love the look of the new drive.

Unfortunately my RVE10 is not getting Optane support.

Yeah but like I posted, the guts look the same. Take a look at both sides of the internal board. No way Intel can produce that and have it cost what it does to produce Samsung's stick of gum.

I would be a little hesitant to jump on this. First it is brand new tech. Second it is 2-3X the cost per GB that I paid for the already expensive 750. And last, I would want to hear from one of you guys being and early adopter and how fast it feels to you. I really can not see where there could be much felt difference or if it would even save time compared to the 750/960 drives now so I would like to hear some user experience. I can already transfer any large file I have in seconds. For my personal use the only area I can see as lacking is maybe my web speed.

Why? For a 960 Pro? It is not better than my 1.2TB 750 IMO. Only in synthetic benchmarks. I have had the 950 Pro and like the 750 better. I am more glad I returned the 960 now, I would rather sell my 750 for a 900. I am not selling it though. I may get a black spray can though lol.

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

The main thing with this drive is how long it will last....but I guess Intel doesn't believe there own numbers, if they did they would have a longer warranty!

Hard for them to control the nitwit factor. I have 7 of 10 years left on my SanDisk Pro!
