Thanks for pointing that out, fixed the numbers. Still a far cry from 1000X endurance though ;)

Crap, didn't see that. Thanks for pointing that out! Point still stands on the 2TB model.

Is anyone else underwhelmed b y the endurance of these drives? It's not like RAM which basically lasts forever (ok maybe the the radioactive decay of key elements might cause issues).

30x DWPD is not that much.  A PM1725 with NAND is 5 DWPD. With SLC and the same amount of overprovisioning, we are looking at 50x easily.

10x DWPD is just double that of many NAND SSDs.

It is looking like this thing's QD1 performance, low latency, and worse case performance might be the only things going for it. Judging by the price it's not that far from DRAM itself.

Endurance and capacity are the two things Intel continues to get beaten on with this particular product. They screwed up early on with the XPoint announcement of 1000X better endurance over NAND and now have to explain why that's not the case. I do wish they'd be more open about the technology too. At the launch they refused to discuss anything around the underlying tech. I'm sure it's fast, we just don't know other than what Intel is sharing.
