the full x16 card might not come to consumer market, they'd probably release an x4 version instead which is still plenty good and should also be much cheaper.
to begin with, what we should be looking at 3D-XPoint isn't the sequential speed but the vastly higher IOPS and lower access latency, neither requires an x16 lane.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Thats 40 lanes right there and one could need a second GPU or more drives or another add in card.
Poor Intel offering only 40 CPU lanes.

24 of those lanes are used by the chipset, leaving 48. If Threadripper follows desktop and server, that's double the bandwidth for PCIe 4.0 over 3.0 along with more lanes.

Can be the best SSD out there but if it costs a house almost no one will buy it. So what's the price for that performance? Are they even going to bother to make a retail version for us normal tech people who aren't a corporation with unlimited untaxed funds?

No one buys but big corporation may snatch a few dozen.

I am waiting for a retail one as well, something that compete or even exceed the upcoming 910p Optane from Intel?

Mmm, no.

You have 48 lanes and a DMI, which functions the same as a PCI-e 3.0 x4. The SB works as a PLX controller and "splits" that 4 lanes into 24. From the 24 lanes on the SB to the CPU you still only have ~4GB/s.

But keep lying to yourself to feel better about the inferior IO.

Why so toxic?

My Threadripper is 64 lanes, but the layout is still x16-x8-x16-x8. Yes it sux without 4x16 or atleast 3x16 pci-e lanes eletricaly.

don't forget that PCIe 4.0 and PCIe 5.0 also has more bandwidth.
the same x4 lanes with PCIe 5.0 could easily provide as much bandwidth as x16 of PCIe 3.0.
even PCIe 4.0 x4 can provide up to 7.8GB/s of bandwidth, which is just a bit less than Micron X100's 9GB/s sequential speeds.

anyway, we don't really need to push hard on lane counts with PCIe 4.0 or PCIe 5.0.

You should have bought something like the Asrock X399 Phantom Gaming 6 or moved up to Epyc if you needed the lanes.

What's the point of 10GiBE in the consumer market again? Especially considering most people use WiFi?

For me. a full 16 lane PCIe card wouldn't work -- because my air cooled vid-card takes up all those slots w/fans and its massive heatsink.
