    Two separate drives on one board splitting the bandwidth.

    No smarts on the board, not even a PCIe switch, it's all in software.

    Intel needs a single optane/nand controller with on-board smarts that can interface to both the optane and the nand, and do the clever stuff itself, and present itself as a single drive to the system, on the full PCIe width.

    Is a max of 70 degrees operating temp likely to be a concern on cheap laptops with terrible cooling full of dust? Suppose it's about the same as any previous storage solutions but M2 format SSDs do tend to get warm under load.

    It's stupid of Intel to not put the tiering controller in hardware and relying on software in Windows with the mobo. Completely missing a large total addressable market and getting their, frankly, trashy late Optane out there looking better than peoples expectations.

    Oh well, well done Intel on trying to make a proprietary market to make their products more viable. When instead, people will look at the H10 and then look at the SN500 or the other stuff and go, yeah lets go with that instead...

    I don't think they are ready. Future generations should progressively move towards more integration.

    An analyst is saying they want to move both Optane and QLC volumes so the end product will be priced competitively. If the price is right, people will buy.

    It'll end up initially on laptops anyway.

    Intel SSDs with Optane memory are the fastest
    as compared to NAND SSDs
    in the majority of common client use cases

    You just have to love (layered) marketing speak like this (although it's not necessarily untrue)...

    That being said I wouldn't touch a QLC drive with a 50" barge pole unless there are no other options available.

    PS: I noticed this only shows properly in the forum.
