Whilst the headline 6.5Gb/s figure may allow the claim of 'Faster than a Playstation 5!' in reality, without the dedicated, custom hardware I/O chips of the PS5 doing their magic, I'm guessing they will still be slower for PC games.

The article doesn't mention PS5...

Wonder what the price is going to be, won't be shocked if the 1TB model costs nearly as much as an entire console.

In the US the 1TB 970 pro cost $400. Considering it's also 2 years old... Yeah the 980 pro won't be a great deal.

Especially in the ps5. An extra 175GB of storage and same performance for likely over $400? Not worth it. Unfortunately that'll also be the norm as ssds get larger and faster that would be compatible with the ps5.

Mine as well buy another console for barely more and just game share on it at that point with a guarantee it'll work.

You can buy a 1TB Gen4 SSD with the same Phison controller for under 200USD
