    No clue here, but I wouldn't expect anything less than $2K (possibly more). The market always sets a premium on new tech, and this is Intel we are talking about.

    2015, juicy 3GB/s read/write and 2TB+ at affordable prices. Going to be awesome! Il start saving up for a beastly rig. Will about time when my current rig will show its age big time :3 Looks good, can't wait to see what Samsung will bring out.
     
  6. I imagine some fool will buy the drive and then hook it up to a single Sata port, then wonder why the most he can get out of the drive is 550mb/s.

    Would be even more impressive if they managed to hook a PCIe drive up to a single SATA port!

    I don't believe those PCI SSD-s will fall into the category of accessible, which is a shame, since SATA SSD-s seem more and more like something from the past. I'm using the latest Macbook Pro with PCI SSD that show read/write north of 700MB/s, and not willing to buy anything for the SATA anymore.
