[TH] 8 TB Samsung QVO SSD Mysteriously Appears on Amazon for $900

If you're looking for an ultra-high-capacity SSD aimed primarily at storing files, you might want to keep an eye out for the upcoming Samsung 870 QVO SSDs. The 1 TB and 8 TB models have been mysteriously listed on Amazon for preorder, though few specifications are available at this time.

I took a screen shot of the amazon page.
Spoiler!

Way too expensive for what it is, especially given the SATA limitations.
If you can copy a few hundred Gigs per-minute then such a large SSD starts to make sense, but even if this is 6x better than an 8TB HDD it's still a far cry from what it really should be.
Doubly so when 1TB TLC drives are so cheap (or at least they were a few months ago and probably will be again next year).

Agreed. A user who uses this as storage will never tell the difference between this SSD and a mechanical drive, unless they are a benchmarks warrior, in which case any 256GB nVME drive will obliterate this. Thus, to me this is pretty overpriced, especially as it's possible to get dozens of TB of storage, plus redundancy.

gonna disagree that you're only going to notice the speed if benchmarking, when compared to an 8tb platter. that's just silly.

you'd notice a difference moving just a couple movies, let alone a few 50-100GB games.

You will notice it when moving files for sure. I'm not sure how many people will be moving enough files day in and day out to get much benefit from it though. At least the price is decent compared to buying 8 1tb drives, but I feel like they could pass along a bit more savings from not having 8 cases/controllers etc..

I can see the use case for a 970 enterprise level SSD for sure. A consumer level 870 not so much though.

The 3TB drives in my server (Toshiba DT01ACA300) copy at speeds of 180MB/s (XFS) and once the cache has been filled this QVO drive will drop to either equal or even slower speeds. Thus, my drives will end up being either equal in speed or faster.

I'm sure with an overpriced areca raid card I could tell the difference. I think with 12+ in raid 5 I'd see some nice speeds.
