I wonder if AMD will enter into the NUC/CE equivalent market with their super efficient Ryzen 4000 series + PCIe 4.0 support before Intel's own PCIe 4.0 CPUs get released into the wild, just to undercut Intel's market share. Maybe they'll partner with Zotac again to do it knowing Zotac's experience in designing miniature main-boards.

The cost of this unit was bloated by:

StorageIntel Optane 905p 380GB SSD (PCIe NVMe)$504.66
Kingston KC2000 1TB SSD (PCIe NVMe)

vs: faster Samsung 970 Evo+ 500gb $120 and/or 1gb for $220.

The Hyper X 3200 memory at $114 is overpriced compared to $84 Gskill 3600 Cl16 2x8gb .

" far past its base $1,639.99 price tag !"

No. Instant no. It's tempting, but no. There's just too much choice to splash down that amount of cash on something like this. Plus, as we know, will intel release further modules and at what inflated price?

You really think the EVO 970 is faster than optane? Maybe in sequential speeds, When is that going to be relevant as both have sequential speeds in excess of 1.5 GB/s? How are you going to feed the storage that much data so that will will actually be a bottleneck?

In all the other metrics that matter, Optane is far faster than the Evo 970, Pity the cost per gigabyte is 6x+, here is a link showing the 280GB of optane vs the 970 evo 1TB
