    I can certainly see that going down well with anyone working with large datasets on an older, but still performant, Intel system. Depends on how much throwing around large files is bottlenecking stuff and just how expensive your time is.

    Would have been good to compare it to a Samsung 980 Pro...

    Useful if you need the bandwidth on an older system, but IMO the market that cares about that and wants RGB is limited. I suspect most sales will be to people who don't understand PCIe lane allocation - especially given that the objectively better SN850 is cheaper.
