    Yeah does sound pretty good but I'd like to see independent testing because as we all know in house 'cherry picked' stats don't always pan out in the real world.

    The new WD Black SN850 1TB looks to be faster than the 1TB Samsung 980 Pro, it's nice to see some fresh upper end competition in the PCIe 4.0 NVMe space and will be interesting where the E18 based drives end up sitting.

    That's great and all. Guess these speeds are definitely aimed more at content creators than the average joe gamer, I honestly don't think I need that type of speed at the moment, PCIe Gen 3.0 is more than fast enough for me right now.

    Maybe when I next upgrade. Who knows.

    That is a right ssd for photoshop users, sometimes it takes ages to save raw files.

    Will also be nice if this pushes the old PCIe4 part towards the budget catagory.
