Innogrit recently jumped into the scene with its Rainier IG5236 SSD controller that offers sequential read and write speeds over 7,000 MB/s and 6,000 MB/s, respectively. Samsung will really need to up its game if the company wants to the 980 PRO to be the fastest PCIe 4.0 SSD on the market.
I mean, sequential max speeds are nice and all... but it doesn't directly correspond to real-world performance. So for all we know the 980 Pro will be the fastest (depending on the workload). We won't know until they hit the labs.

As for me I'll be waiting to see how a more affordable "980 Evo" performs.
