Thread Starter 
I just heard about this. Supposidly will be out in a couple of weeks. No pricing yet? I haven't seen what it's estimated price will be. Would it be or is it a better SSD?

It's $240 for not that fast of a drive:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820167190

Performance:

Max Sequential Read: Up to 550 MBps
Max Sequential Write: Up to 270 MBps
4KB Random Read: Up to 86,000 IOPS
4KB Random Write: Up to 56,000 IOPS

Here's an 840 Evo for $146:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00E3W1726/ref=sr_1_2_olp?ie=UTF8&qid=1393779585&sr=8-2&keywords=SAMSUNG+840+EVO&condition=new

Performance:

Sustained Sequential Read: 540MB/s
Sustained Sequential Write: 520MBps
4KB Random Read: Up to 97,000 IOPS
4KB Random Write: Up to 66,000 IOPS

Then here's the even cheaper Crucial M500 for $130:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00BQ8RM1A/ref=sr_1_2_olp?ie=UTF8&qid=1393483734&sr=8-2&keywords=256gb+ssd&condition=new

Performance:

Sustained Sequential Read: 500MB/s
Sustained Sequential Write: 250MB/s
4KB Random Read: Up to 72,000 IOPS
4KB Random Write: Up to 60,000 IOPS

So basically with the Intel 730 you are getting slightly better performance than a Crucial M500, but for almost 2x the price of the M500. Intel wants you to pay $1 per GB of storage on this new SSD. Granted Intel is the most reliable SSD, but many other manufacturers have proven themselves just as reliable for a lot less money. Case in point, Samsung with the Evo and Crucial with the M500.

Not a good buy at all.

I would just buy a crucial SSD and a sticker... biggrin.gif

I really wouldn't be interested in buying an SSD until Q3 or Q4 when the new X-99 platform is out. That's when I plan to upgrade my X-58 system. I would hope that the price drops a bit by then. But reading I find if you raid 0 two of these drives they out perform Samsung. I know buying two drives might be pricey but I don't mind paying a little extra for more reliability.

This SSD is far from overkill. It's sub-par performance with an expensive price tag. Intel trying to get into the "money nabbing" gamers market who are clueless and purchase parts without any knowledge of the actual performance.

"Oh this product is directed at gamers, I'm going to buy it." "Look it has a Skull on it, must be awesome." wth.gif

A Samsung 840 Evo will run circles around this SSD, and a Crucial M500 will slap it across its face in price to performance.

It's actually decent for server workloads, but it's a terrible consumer drive for the money. Lots of people will buy it anyway, makes me kind of sick.
