There's a new NVM Express SSD in town. OCZ's enterprise-oriented Z-Drive 6000 Series supports version 1.1b of the low-overhead protocol designed to replace AHCI. Rather than using an in-house controller, the drive taps a PMC Sierra chip with 16 NAND channels. This controller is tied to four PCIe Gen3 lanes via a cabled SFF-8639 interface.

Initially, the drives will be available in 800GB, 1.6TB, and 3.2TB capacities. There are also plans for a 6.4TB version—and for a 6300 derivative based on a half-height, half-length expansion card. Right now, the 6000 Series is limited to the thicker 2.5" form factor familiar from Intel's 750 Series SSD.

Need it

NVIDIA > AMD People told me a 7970 to a 770 would be a side grade but after seeing the difference here I believe a 660 wold have been an upgrade over the 7970 . So much smoother no more dropped frames or stutter.
2600K @ 7.61GHZ say what?
As of October 27 2013 I have had 9 news articles on the homepage at once. For the first time in my life I feel I have accomplished something and am actually happy about it.

So far NVME hasn't really been that impressive, 4K IOPS haven't been that much higher than consumer drives.

6.4tb that'd be nearing the $10k mark or more since it's labelled "Enterprise"
