    I wonder if these new SSDs will need any heatsinks. I saw a recent review on Anandtech where the SDD in question was doing some thermal throttling, which was a proper WTF for me, because I only thought C(G)PUs were doing that and more importantly produced enough heat to justify having such feature.

    I see what looks like a marvell controller, probably with a dram chip in front of it for the cache and some caps that look pretty worn-out on the pic, some Toshiba Nand chips...

    more competition = more dropping prices.

    Always good to see more interesting products to help drive the price down of the other versions of this tech.

    There were some M.2 SSD's hitting 105 degrees. Let me find the article.

    Cant seem to find it anymore, remember it being a youtube video.

    My mini pci-e one is really hot to the touch, I initially thought it was being affected by just my laptop being hot but it was hot even at startup

    How can a SSD get so hot and not RAM?

    No idea, that was my thinking, RAM barely gets hot to the touch but this thing was near burning my hands level, i've had a look at the temps, right now its 55 C and im just browsing the web, in games it can reach something like 90 C.

    Could maybe get a little stick on heat spreader for it, though it's got the paper stick on it already that I doubt helps

    The controller has cpu, isn't just NAND chips but actual cpu required for controller logic inside.

    Why didn't any company say anything about this? 113 degrees can't be good for any piece of hardware.

    It doesn't seem to be an issue, within the thermal tolerance level. Not heard of anyones SSDs melting or catching fire so far

    Why doesn't anyone go ham and make a PCIE 3.0 x16 SSD?

    It would be something like 10GB/s seq read 8GB/s seq write judging by the speed of this M7e

    This doesn't sound so amazing when you consider that MacBook Air 13" with 120GB SSD can do almost 1.5GB/s read hehe.

    Considering that normal temperature for SATA SSD's is about room temperature, with very good performance, even 60c seems a lot.

    But, everything have it's own use, so do this type of hardware, i seriously can't think of a reason for normal PC user to even look at this. But, normal SSD is a must for any regular PC user, however, even old generation SSD's are extremely fast (and cool) for such usage.

    not to mention, look where the slot is placed on a lot of motherboards. gpu fans exhausting on them all day cant be good.

    This. But nobody cares to do a temp test without a dedicated GPU apparently.

    Fusion IO makes some of the fastest SSDs out there (enterprise grade of course, they are outrageously expensive) and theirs work on x8 slots. I do not believe we have chips that can max out x16.
