The 1TB model delivers up to 3,200 MB/s sequential read and 2,400 MB/s sequential write performance. Random 4KB numbers run up to 380,000 IOPS read and 440,000 IOPS write. We've already seen a CrystalDiskMark result with even higher performance but have yet to verify the legitimacy of the image.

This image has emerged today via the Taobao sale page. The PM981 features a thin metal heatsink over the new Polaris V2 controller.

Why would you send back your 960 Pro which has MLC nand flash and replace it with 981 which clearly states TLC nand flash, only difference other than that appears to be a new controller

They only increased the speeds just a little bit so you won't feel so bad and want to return it. They still have plenty of room for future releases with further increases in speed, watch out for those..

Reads are actually slightly slower but writes are slightly quicker

well not for the TLC NAND...you can pretty much bet the MLC (970 PRO?) or Z-NAND (980?) will be plenty quicker

In most scenario's at least on the mainstream platform 960 Pro already approaches saturation point of DMI 3.0, until DMI 4.0 is introduced I see little point in "upgrading"

Ryzen will be the same as X399 right (going directly to the cpu)?

Yes, Ryzen has 4 more PCIe lanes compared to mainstream Intel. With only 16x PCIe from the CPU motherboards usually do not connect those PCIe lanes to M.2 ports but with 4 extra it is much more likely.

2x 960 Pro in Raid 0 saturating the DMI 3.0 on Z170, ignore the benches on the right, just some fun with a RAM cache

Can you do RAID0 with one M.2 using CPU PCIe lanes and another using chipset PCIe lanes on a X370 motherboard? I wonder how much faster those drives would go.
