I just wanted to throw this bit of info out there.
it may have been mentioned but I didn't read all the comments yet.
when developing any new products the manufacturers will always test different ways to use the product to verify it will work in almost all conditions.
(this is how the QVL is created)
so if intel is testing their SSD using AMD CPUs, then they are verifying it will work with that hardware.
with that said I would not be surprised if intel was also testing their SSD using other processors too. (for instance: snapdragon processors, apple processors, etc)
if intel only verified that their SSD worked only with intel systems then they will be losing potential buyers.
