    The chip on the ssg might be fiji. Well there is a picture of the board from the backside and people are thinking that it is a fiji chip.

    https://twitter.com/FudzillaNews/status/757774661081899008 Sure it is Fudzilla. But Fiji would make more sense.

    10 000$ well it ain't only for the hardware so understandable.

    Considering that you have to fit M.2 there, Fiji makes sense.

    I would think Fiji too, but both Anandtech and PC Perspective say it's Polaris.

    Title says it all on the second one.

    Hilbert lists the Pro WX series in his article, but that leads to confusion. The SSG card is not part of that family.

    Latency wise the differences are probably orders of magnitude.

    That's his point. Otherwise there would be no benefit over just having a raided M.2 setup. I'm sure there is a difference, I'd like to see it compared with a real system though and not AMD's black box. ~800MB/s is way to low for there to be raided SSD's in the system like there is on the SSG card.

    I definitely like the idea -- I'd just like to see it compared to a similar setup.
