So, the new M.2 that operates on PCI-E 4.0 has slower read and write speeds than the current Samsung 970 EVO M.2 that operates on PCI-E 3.0. Am I missing something here?

You may find it amusing to note that the 8TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 solid-state drive is now worth more than the combined value of all human organs and income produced by every inhabitant of *SUBJECT'S HOMETOWN*

It's "3-bit V-NAND" now instead of TLC? Samsung better hope IMFT doesn't start making 3DXP profitable any time soon

@POOPFLINGER
They are not meant for you but for server racks where combined together in large numbers they can provide huge amount of data at SSD speeds.Don't think you can stack together Samsung 970 EVO M.2 the very same way.

Yes I was extremely confused by the dimensions, 11cm x 30.5cm is basically 4" by 12" (1 foot long!) and it would be "a bit larger" than standard M.2 drive. I know the metric system is hard, but it's not that hard! Left me scratching my head about the "amazing capacity" until I got even more confused with the M.2 comparison and understood the numbers are likely wrong.

"With a heavy focus on enterprise customers and data center..." Does anyone else just read that and go, ok, f#** that - can't afford it. Next article.

110mm by 30.5mm is 8.5mm wider, NOT 8.5mm longer.
Thus, instead of a width of 22mm, this NF1 form factor
adds 4.25mm to each side, but the overall length remains
110mm. As such, it may not fit into the M.2 slots that
are integrated on many late model motherboards.
Also, we did a visual inspection (without careful measurement),
and this NF1 form factor may be too "wide" for the
ASRock Ultra Quad M.2 add-in card. Half-height AICs
with room for 2 x M.2 SSDs may have room for this
new form factor, however. Time will tell.
