    300 layers?!?!?

    They are creating the SSD of Babel, and the Gods of Storage shall smite it verily. But then I have backups in place so that's fine, I'll have one

    Well now. Interesting.

    If it pans out this way in real-world usage, 10% performance increase and 15% cut in power consumption is not to be dismissed ....depending on price. If it really is "keen" then I'm interested, and will hold off on some purchases until the wrinkles shake out of this.

    If.

    I'd rather know more about their pcie gen4 ssds if I'm honest.

    Sata ssd's are getting the point where it doesn't really matter who you pick as they're all pretty much on a similar level (using the same class of components obviously)

    I may have got a little mixed up.

    I'm kind of hoping that SATA SSDs will use this tech to make them cheap and more suited to mass storage and then the PCI-e 4 ones will provide the performance end.

    Considering how we keep hearing about 'stock supplies' when it comes to nand etc I wouldn't necessarily count on these being 'cheap'.

    I'm also not sure I'd want to use an ssd for 'long term storage' if I'm honest although I do plan to try and go majority or full ssd when I build my next pc but then I do have a server for storing stuff too.

    I use exclusively SSDs now. There are two hard drives in my PC which are contribuiting more to structural integrity than data storage. Anything vital is stored on more than one drive. My oldest SSD is an Intel X-25M (80GB, around 11 years old) which is still reporting nearly 100% drive life remaining. There are 3 more I've bought over time with larger and larger capacities.

    I'm pretty content with the reliability of the SSDs. Long term storage no - not suitable. But mass storage on a regularly used PC is fine from my experience.

    This ^^^^ no real point in not using ssd's now - with a decent backup regime. Just built myself a Ryzen system with a corsair nvme ssd. £116.99 for 1 tb. £124.98 for a Ryzen 5 2600 6c12t processor and £76.99 for motherboard. Picked up some second hand ram at £40 for 16gb of 2400mhz stuff. Nothing special, quick runs well. I get the following figures, no messing around



    Oh and cinebench is a huge improvement too
