    Really like the look of this drive, clean and understated, if they can get the price right then it can only do well for them.

    Black PCB would have been nice but good to see more NVME drives coming out anyway

    I wonder when some company's going to make a relatively cheap card that takes 16 x PCIE 3.0 and turns it into 4 x m.2 connectors, then we can raid 0 those and get 8-10GB/s from a single card

    It looks black in the last picture, but then a weird shade of dark blue in the top pic...

    That's weird you say that, I was literally 'discussing' that with a mate

    As nice as this is, it'll blatantly be at least £400-500, which isn't worth the extra speed over a SATA3-based SSD. Shave £200 quid off and I'd be interested.

    Re: ZOTAC launches the SONIX 480GB PCIe SSD

    Without pricing information this announcement is not very useful.

    Intel already make NVME PCIe x4 SSD cards, and all the reviews say they are excellent, but they are also fairly expensive. If this Zotac card is a similar price to the Intel one, then I would buy Intel. On the other hand if the price is similar to a SATA based SSD of similar capacity, then I would give this a go.
