    Oh cool, a 2 grand PC, should be perfect for 4K gaming it looks really bala -

    Rather than adopt the usual SSD primary, HDD secondary configuration, the Infinity X77 Titanium comes equipped with a 3TB Seagate Barracuda hard disk and a speed injection courtesy of a 16GB Intel Optane M.2 accelerator.

    I don't get it. If storage size is so important, why not stick a 2TB Firecuda SSHD in it?

    As mentioned above it's only a £150 premium on buying the components individually, for which you get it built, overclocked and a 3 year warranty, which isn't bad. I wouldn't, but I think it's probably an attractive option for some.

    I do wonder how many they need to sell to make a profit, and what sort of numbers they expect to sell.

    tbh the storage benchmarks look pretty reasonable. Unless you're going to spend your entire life writing large sequential files to disk, it looks snappy enough to not really notice the difference day to day compare to a SATA3 SSD, which is where most people will be coming from...

    I don't think storage size is important - it's far more likely that the Optane drive is part of a mobo bundle. Not having to factor that cost in means the OEM can simply set a budget for storage then slap the largest available drive at that price in it.

    As I say, the benchmarks for storage are a bit of a mixed bag, but if you're coming from a SATA 3 SSD I suspect they'd be more than fast enough to keep you happy

    Incidentally, when I got my current laptop I was moving from an SSD equipped machine to an HDD equipped machine and I barely noticed any difference thanks to intelligent caching in Windows. I recently swapped back to an SSD in the same laptop, and again I haven't really noticed any difference in responsiveness. I'm pretty sure that Windows caching algorithms are now good enough that with plenty of RAM available and SSD is no longer the big day-to-day boost they used to be (although for some tasks they're obviously massively better).

    Lets be honest 30mins unskilled work to build a pc and if that cost's £150 then we're in the wrong game.

    I have to question if a queue depth of 32 is representative of the average gamer? Do games actually have that much to read / write in real world scenarios?

    As an aside, I also suspect you are probably right, coming from SATA 3 SSD it looks fairly comparable to the performance you could 6 years ago with small SATA 3 SSDs in Raid 0 (really old benchmark!)

    Re: Cyberpower Infinity X77 Titanium

    The storage benchmarks are useless - it is a 16GB cache drive, with the most often used files put there. Install, say, 5 40gb games and you won't see any performance gain from the cache drive (barely)

    SSHDs are good for midway to SSDs for home users, because they cache files like for the operating system and the usual programs (browsers, MS office, etc.) so the normal user sees a considerable speed boost over their old setup. But people who play even a few big games don't see much of an improvement.
