    Fingers crossed! It'd line up perfectly for a Ryzen 3K build with a 2TB M.2 in summer or early fall. :)

    500gb samsung 970 m2 seems to be the best bang for buck. Will follow the prices with great interest.

    Hoping for sub $100 Terabyte SSD's. It's wild to me seeing this though, since I was one of the very first SSD adopters all those years ago. I remember paying almost $300 USD for a 60GB Vertex drive. Those were the days.

    Desperately need a 2TB for my PS4 Pro because 1TB is not enough with online games getting near the 100GB mark.

    Will put that Samsung Pro 1TB into my PC where space is not a big issue as it is only a gaming PC. I think 200 bucks for a 2TB is my goal so whenever that hits I will bite.

    At this point it's pretty obvious these things don't cost anywhere near this to be manufactured anymore for a lot of profit still, and the prices are just going to have to come down. People will not pay 300 plus for much these days.

    I only spent on a 1TB Samsung because I can't stand load times in games on PS4.

    Would love to get a 2TB SSD for my photos. Would love the improved speed with that seeing as photos are only getting bigger and bigger.

    idk about 50% drop, plausible though.

    what i do know is OEM systems are going to be a rip-off until summer as the memory was sourced at higher prices.

    but there will be a price war as WD fully integrates Toshiba's production of NAND and Micron wants US and Euro sales to make up for Chinese issues.

    Might be a good opportunity for me to upgrade my home server. Right now it has a RAID1 setup with a couple of 7200RPM laptop drives. They're plenty fast enough (considering my network is limited to 1Gbps anyway) and aren't showing signs of failure, but I like the idea of something being more reliable and more energy efficient. Switching to a single drive, I could also finally switch to ARM and ditch x86 (RAID isn't really achievable on ARM, at least not cost-effectively).

    Micron has bought 100% of Intel's interests in Optane.
    look for AMD compatibility to be advertised (it always worked but was sold as Intel)
    as well as new sizes and formats (i.e. M.2, pcie, 2.5").
    also a price reduction. Micron has troubles in China and is doubling down on the first world.

    Speaking of SSD... Any chance to see new SSD that takes advantage of PCI-E 4 this year? (since Ryzen 3XXX is coming with PCI-E 4)

    Just in time to accomodate a fresh Linux install on a 1 TB SSD, Steam and Lutris will happily install games on it!

    Will happily buy 2nd M.2 as long as price is right and it is PCIe x4 even if it is not faster than 2.5GB/s
