PCIe 4.0 requires a heatsink so this is only for motherboards that have built in heatsink which is most of them. They are also available for sale separately

Store4PC via Amazon.com has the Sabrent Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD's on sale with the following coupon codes:
  • 1TB [amazon.com] for $239.99 - 17% OFF with promo code 17ZY8VF3 = $199.99
  • 2TB [amazon.com] for $429.99 - 7% OFF with promo code 0769M99T = $399.99
(Make sure the item is sold and shipped by store4pc)

IMO these are not worth 2x premium over PCIe3.0 drives. 99% of the people won't notice any difference.

Maybe, but it feels good to be the 1% for a change.

Agreed, perfectly happy with the PCI-e 3 2TB for $220, a darn good price given the speed/capacity:

Is there any purpose for X570 beyond these drives? If not then you're paying for the board and the drive premium for performance that you will not notice. Not an AMD hater by the way. Currently running a 2700X and trying to decide between 3700X and 3900X for next build.

The one benchmark I really want to see is how random IOPS in these new drives performs in a PCIe 3.0 motherboard. The best-case scenario going from 3.5GB/s (970 Evo Plus or SM2262EN-based drives) to 5GB/s for sequential read/write is one thing, but that only applies for people building brand-spanking new AMD systems. What's the real-world potential for literally every other desktop on the planet?

If you currently have a X470, or X370, etc, then not really. But if you're just now building a new computer then the X570 is more future proofing. It also provides more PCI-E lanes, more sata, more USB, pretty much more of everything plus PCI-E 4. So it largely depends on the use case you'll use it for. If you need to have the extra lanes or sata or something then yeah, but if not then not worth the upgrade.

Other than bandwidth, does the PCIe 4.0 improve IO per/s or IOPS?

Does it give more lanes for M.2 drives? My only issue with my X470 Taichi is that you can only run one PCIE-3 M.2 at full speed. The second slot will only run at PCIE-2 when both are filled.

The heatsink is really important to have with pcie4 SSDs, right? I would totally jump on this deal, but I feel like I need the heatsink.

Agreed, its a brand new product so they charging a premium, this will come down in time. Right now, there is probably no need of the speeds this offer for an average user. We should wait for them to drop.
