Obviously, MS is going to get better pricing through high-volume orders and cutting out some intermediaries, but that only gets you so far...I guess it depends where the nand is sourced right? Some big multi year nand supply contract might allow for some cheap stuff, I think.
Generally speaking, DRAM-less SSDs are slower. And, usually, you need more/larger buffers to accommodate higher speeds, whether we're talking about networking, storage, or probably a range of other things.Oh, and will PCI-e gen4 require more or less ram to reach high sustained speeds?
Yeah, and I'm (mentally) accounting for that.Consoles have historically been sold at a loss(at least initially) which they recoup by game sales.
I know, but putting any DRAM on the SSD costs more than putting none. Not only do you have the cost of the DRAM, but also the board space & routing.Ssd ram memory and system memory Are different things...
