    Seem like Der8auer is getting quite some attention lately.

    Wow, that's some crazy speed there. X399 looks ideal for anyone looking for high I/O throughput.

    I don't need too much in the way of I/O, but I'd be interested in trying out a RAID configuration on my TR system (maybe when I can get my hands on another 960 Evo).

    Saw video before he put it down, don't know reason,maybe has something to do with Asus cards for m.2 .He said in video they are currently not available for sale,maybe they are under NDA

    Actually DDR4 2133 has only 25gb/s throughput!!!!!!!
    That raid is 10% faster!!!!!!

    OMG! That is amazing, AMD owns.

    Yeah no update for the MSI mobo, must be Friday I am betting.

    Wait.....so you can somehow do raid using both the pci slots and using the m.2 slots using pci lanes...at the same time, that's crazy.

    Actually on Carbon and Zenith but not the Gaming 7, they come with 4 pci-e 16x slots. So if correct, you can use the top pci-e slot for GPU at 16x, and the next 3 PCI-e slots with expansion cards for 4 M2 drives each. (12 in total)
    And all of them would still directly communicate to the CPU at full capacity and speed. (64 lanes)

    That cards look so good. There should be simple physical adapter and then not so expensive.
    They do not look having an array chip of some kind.

    What i amounts to is greatly expanded cheap memory for some tasks.

    It can be virtualised by hosting the windows swap file , or vega's hbcc can use it to simulate gpu cache.

    The respective speeds, historicaally clearly separating storage from ram, have become a blurred boundary.

    Damn at that speed Windows is going to be doing stuff before you even think to do stuff!

    It can tell the future!

    Nice throughput, how's the IOPS? :)

    Why is there no link?
    Why is there no test for 2
    NVMe M2
    ?
    No one will buy 12
    NVMe M2

    Der8auer just did. Making your statement invalid.

    Also...
    - Nobody will buy that horseless carriage
    - Humans cannot fly
    - It's not possible to go to the moon
    - Nobody will ever need more than 640 KB of ram
    - Nobody will ever use more than one video card
    - Nobody needs 16 cores

    This attitude is getting really tiresome...

    This report is consistent with the mathematical predictions
    we have been making for raw bandwidth using a similar
    Highpoint SSD7101A-1:

    1 x NVMe PCIe 3.0 lane = 8 GHz / 8.125 = 984.6 MB/second

    4 x NVMe PCie 3.0 lanes = 4 x 984.6 = 3,938.4 MB/second

    4 x NVMe SSD in RAID-0 = 4 x 3,938.4 = 15,753.6 MB/second

    8 x NVMe SSD in RAID-0 = 8 x 3,938.4 = 31,507.2 MB/second

    Aggregate controller overhead = 1.0 - (28,375.84 / 31,507.2) = 9.93% (call it 10% overall)

    The only problem with this is
    Samsung pro/evo is 3200/1500MB/s vs Corsair MP500 is 3000/2400MB/s
    Cant see how the samsungs gets so fast..
