    I will never buy another Samsung SSD again, the product support is terrible, refusal to release PSID revert tool is a great move considering other manufacturers have them available, promises of SED support that doesn't work when it's released over a year after release. I am now sat with a drive in secure mode that cannot be reverted without an RMA.

    just wondering...is intel's 3Dxpoint technology more superior than anything Samsung has to offer?

    Doesn't appear to be. When eventually launched the performance was less than promised and the price was higher than expected. It's different anyway. Google throws up lots of if whens and maybes.

    It has its uses, but as a general SSD, 3D-NAND seems to be the answer.

    Depends how you define superior. 3DXPoint as a non-volatile memory technology is theoretically superior in many ways to NAND flash, particularly compared to MLC and TLC, but the price per GB is very high.

    In terms of actual shipping products the Optane drives generally have high endurance figures compared to equivalent size NAND based products, stronger performance at low queue depth, don't require high queue depth to reach maximum performance and have lower and more consistent latency. On the downside Optane drives are very expensive, power hungry, capacity is low and they don't win in every scenario or in a way that would affect many applications.

    I've successfully used Optane drives as caches but the capacity is too small to be useful as a general storage drive.

    I would love to see a head 2 head review of the 970 PRO and Intel's 280GB Optane 900P PCIe 3.0 x4 Internal SSD. I wonder if any tech site will have the guts to do that review?

    So as not to encroach on the rules of the forum, I won't mention who I work for, but I will see if we can get the Optane 900p and do that for you. Currently got the 970 PRO in so shouldn't be too difficult.

    I'll PM you if I have any luck.

    several sites already have them compared to the 900p in their reviews
