Good price for the 1% who would need something like this. Gamers would see no difference. Just for those who edit and encode videos or transfer big files on the daily
Totally agree; however, Microsoft has confirmed DirectStorage API which will require PCIE 4 components. It will be a long time (perhaps 2 years) before it's primed and ready for gaming but if you're building or upgrading a rig (I am) and want it ready for the future, it seems like a good component since it's quality and far less expensive than EVO 980 or SN850.

Unlikely to be compatible for PS5 since the spec for that is 5.5GB/s and it has been stated that the expansion drive needs overhead above 5.5GB to match the requirement. This one is spec'd at just 5GB/s which is below even the internal SSD.

Samsung 980Pro and WD SN850 at 7GB/s are the ones that are likely compatible but even then I'd wait until the official compatibility list is released.

I bought a 2tb SATA drive for around $150 in July... granted my 1 TB NVME (Gen 3) was a little over a hundred though...
DRAM-less SATA maybe?

This is slower then the SSD in Ps5. I think Sony said they would have to be as fast, so I don't think this will work.
No they didnt, sony has a dedicated ssd controller baked into the motherboard, what we dont know is if that controller does some voodoo magic to make all gen4 drives upto its speed

Btw, if anyone is going through windows indexer hell problems from cloning their OS drive where indexer does not work properly and defaults index to old drive you will want to alter the key in hidden directory c:\Sysyem Volume Information \ "IndexerVolumeGuid" I changed one number at the end and set to rebuild the index selecting back c drive.. its SLOW even with ssd so let it do it's dirt work (2-3 days).

Looks like Amazon matched the price, but not in stock until December and no limit. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08FCY3...JFbCTFH7WM

Another easy way to say no, if you have intel, pcie 4.0 offers no benefit. While some z490 boards support it, none of the processors do. You'd have to wait for 11th gen.

Agreed. The biggest jump was from spinning drives to SSDs. Subsequent revisions of SSDs are welcome, but not at a premium. On paper this looks great. I'm sure the benchmarks agree too. But real life use for the average Joe...
However wheat DirectStorage becomes a thing in gaming, I do wonder if these speeds will matter more

Yes you should keep your SSD and get a b550 or x570 with AMD

Thanks. I'm not fluent in motherboards, do you mean the B550 or X570?

Get X570 MSI Tomahawk and it is a good board . If you need to upgrade for more cores in few years later with limited budget , that board can handle new Zen3 16 core pretty well for sure.

For 4k video editing it would help, but for photos it would be the same.

That said, if you are going to do light video editing as in not a full time job, you'd be better off with a pci 3 especially since you need a x570 or b550 motherboard and ryzen 3000 for pci 4 compatibility. No current intel CPU supports pci4 even though new intel motherboards do. There is really no reason to buy Intel over AMD at this point. unless may be you are a pro e sports first person shooter player.
