Maybe because that drive isn't available elsewhere? I can't find this one in my local area.So the SK Hynix Gold P31 1TB is not only faster and more efficient, it's also $20 cheaper...Remind me again why TomsHardware doesn't include this drive as a gold standard mainstream PCIe 3.0 based NVMe drive for comparison for PCIe 4.0 based NVMe drive review charts?

Except Amazon and Newegg...Maybe because that drive isn't available elsewhere? I can't find this one in my local area.
And maybe this is just me...but I guess they want to strictly make it as a 4.0 thing more so than a 3.0 one.
Still agree that you have loads of options than with the mushkin one...
