    Granted, you do need a compatible motherboard, but NVMe SSDs are as far as I am concerned incredibly intersting if you want enthusiast grade SSD performance. Up-to this moment a little bit pricy. Inte...

    That's some serious value there! Almost half price of other equivalent capacity NVME SSD's. The write could been a bit better but oh well.

    I would love that 1TB version. Hell, I would gladly taken that 512GB Intel 600p NVME SSD over my 256GB 950 PRO anytime! :thumbup:

    As great as it is to get some competition in the market that only had Samsung devices, it's equally weird to see Intel products with reasonable prices.

    At first I was like "I'm not sure I trust Intel's definition of affordable" but these are actually very good values.

    I would throw one of these in my XPS in a heart beat!

    Hmm very good pricing for Intel based ssds considering those ssds cost an arm and a leg. I have yet to purchase an M2 SATA drive for my PC. I may get one and clone my boot drive on to it and use the m2 as the boot drive for the speed.

    WOW, hats off Intel, that was unexpected. Been a long time since somebody used the terms Intel and affordable in a sentence :) Really interesting product. Don't even want to think about the purchase of 2 Samsung 850 EVOs that I made two months ago... :bang:

    But they all have low endurance of 72 TBW even the 1TB model.
    For the 128 GB is understandable, but the same for a 1 TB model, that is bad...

    I was thinking of posting that there must be a catch to those prices. lol

    Thanks for pointing it out. :thumbup:

    That's a good catch. They also have full capacity, which means that there is not secret space (like 120GB/240GB SSDs have), where you get more write redundancy.

    The write speeds aren't impressive at all....

    most long term use will see chips failing first, because of age, not write cycles.
    even for cheap consumer ssds...

    Wait... That 100 mw while active is writing and reading ? if so that's a huge step forward. That compares to 3W to 5W or more of other drives.

    Wonder how hot these get. Seen other M2s get over 110 degrees warm.

    Yeah that seems a bit off to me. If true, it would mean if you have a miserly 50W to spare on your power supply you could hypothetically run 500 1 TB drives active as in reading and writing simultaenously and still be okay.

    True. My Sammy 950 is about 6-7 months old and used as my main drive and I have written just 3.07TB so far.

    I haven't of course been doing anything taxing so I assume others should be higher but still that's like 10-12 years for that 72TBW based on my usage.

    So for "normal" use that Intel's TBW seems good enough. Still a catch tho compared to the other drivers but not a bad one.

    Is it possible to do RAID 0 with 2 x 600p NVMe SSDs

    72TWB is just fine and should last easily till it's obsolete. My Samsung 830 has over 11TB host writes and it's still doing just fine.
