Who makes the controller?
Just over a year after the first Black M.2 SSD hit the streets, Western Digital has doubled its maximum capacity to 1TB, doubled sequential read bandwidth and more than doubled the random read IOPS. Here are the main numbers of this drive: 250GB, 500GB and 1TB capacities, using 3D NAND Random read and write IOPS – up to 500 …
Not going to happen.
Also most PCs maybe have 1 M.2 port, some 2 and a few 3.
For the home PC 2TB of fast storage is good enough.
For those doing real things ... you would want more fast storage and then use SSDs (SATA) for slower storage and ditch HDDs altogether.
Add to this some GPUs w CUDA capabilities and you have a poor man's workshop for ML and AI.
Its a good thing that the M.2 NVMe drives are now more affordable but still a long way to go...
Yeah, however the M.2 NVMe does a better job than dual ported SAS.
The point was that it depends on the use case.
Most PC gamer types aren't going to need this.
But if you're doing a mini cluster for work using higher end PCs could keep the costs down.
18 core chips are expensive and then you have to have enough memory to boot.... that's $$$
Building out a tiered storage platform on PCs (i9 chips) could make more sense.
No, he's frozen in fear...
His little sister has picked the lock, crept up behind him while he was 'researching', and has just that moment made her presence known. The icy touch combines with the outbreak of cold sweat.. She's eager to begin these blackmail negotiations.
