    I doubt the price will tempt me away from my Intel 900p. (I got it free as a door prize at the product launch).
    Ryzen 2700K / Asus B350M TUF Gaming / 16GB Team Dark Pro 3200MHzC14 / Asus Strix Advanced GTX1080 / Acer Predator X34A / 280G Intel Optane 900P / 500G Samsung 840 EVO SSD / Ubuntu 18.10-x64 / W10

    I think that has covered all the latest hot industry buzzwords!

    Artificial intelligence, especially machine learning makes sense. Datasets are relatively small, and budgets are large, so expensive high speed storage would be a wise investment.

    Big data is a harder sell. Budgets are large, but when they are spread thinly to buy thousands of servers to store massive datasets, the emphasis shifts to finding efficient ways to process data despite using relatively cheap storage. Expensive devices like this would realy put a dent in even the largest budgets.

    Where this SSD would make absolutely no sense is in IoT applications. Here we are talking about cheap plastic devices manufactured in vast numbers with every possible corner cut to reduce costs. (And dam the consequences for reliability, security and everything else). I can see absolutely no scenario where an expensive SSD would be specified over a cheap MicroSD card (that the end user must supply).

    In other words, Samsung marketing are up to their usual exaggeration!

    I believe the main interest for big data is for tiered storage on hot data machines.

    This is where they're stretching things a bit. Obviously this big chunky expensive PCIe card isn't going to fit in anyone's smart watch, but it does fit in the servers that provides IoT devices with data, but that's more a 'big data' situation.

    Absolutely haram marketing as per usual in this space. *sigh*

    edit: 3dcandy absolutely agree it's not enough of an improvement over 961 to be worth it to all but the baddest of data centre uses. (IM LOOKING AT YOU EVE YOU ******ASD**ASD**)
