    As expected of Intel: They have the guts to ask that much money for a measly 375GB drive and still hype it as the NAND killer. They really should have done something about the sequential read and write speeds as well; they look so mediocre they can't help in the marketing.

    They did originally say it would be for the average guy. They even boasted (and still do) that compatibility with KabyLake is a feature.

    Whilst the latency is incredible, the raw speed is extremely disappointing considering the marketing claims.

    Wow...OK, Intel drives that start with 'DC' are for Data Center use - so no, not for average guy, and they NEVER claimed that. It's about endurance, not size or speed, server loads like SQL can kill SSD's fairly quick. Did you guys even read the article? It's not for you. Get over it and move on.

    The Optane brand is being applied several technologies. I think you might be confusing this with the Optane 'DIMMS' coming soon for Kaby Lake/Z270. When you have a terabyte sitting in your DIMM sockets you'll start to see what the 'hype' is about....

    Hey how about that! Someone with actual facts instead of random opinion veiled as fact.

    Thank you for setting the record straight.

    Carry on everyone.
