Too expensive still. Better having a smaller SSD for programs and using big platter drives for storage. I don't know why the average Joe needs so much storage anyway. I guess if you digitally download movies or take many high resolution pictures. There is where cheap platter drives still win. Use one always for backup too.

High-end SATA SSDs have been a little pointless (for consumer use) for a long time, but it's only getting worse as PCIe storage proliferates. Right now, 99.9% of people should either get an affordable mainstream/budget SATA SSD, or if they really need the speed, go for an M.2 PCIe (or U.2 or PCIe AIC) SSD. If you're gonna pay for a premium product, you might as well go for what's actually considerably faster across the board, rather than this kind of half measure.

Most drives are now bottlenecked by SATA.

And because a lot of people cannot change the motherboard to get no SATA drives, SATA drives should come with multiple parallel SATA connectors, and a software driver capable of using them to extract more speed out of the SATA interface.

No point, simpler to just run them in RAID0 if you need more speed.

You'll be interested to kno none of the charts display in FF 47.0.1 and the same applies to the review of the SK hynix .
Charts do show in IE 11.
