For reference, the Samsung 980 Pro 2TB is $269.99 at Amazon. It will be interesting to see how this drive stacks up against it in reviews.

I say this as someone who is in the market to replace 2 smaller Samsung 960 Pros with a single 2TB 980 Pro.

Exiting for datacentres running high concurrent usage DBs (who would likely not be seen dead running one of these drives and are instead lapping up every Optane die they can get), but what does its IOPS performance look like at the QD1 queue depths seen with desktop workloads?

Why are current generation SSDs so low on endurance vs the last gen. For example 750 TBW Vs 1400 or more in msi spatium 470
The more bits stored per cell the higher chance of error. The intrinsic problem moving from TLC to QLC is actually worse than the numbers suggest, but is improved by better error correction techniques.

Both drives are TLC. I am currently not interested in QLC drives. I would only consider a QLC drive if it is 10c/GB or less for a drive with DRAM.
