It's a shame it's a x4 lane drive with x2 speeds. Just increases the cost and it won't compete against cheaper x2 drives and certainly not x4 drives.

Technically that does surpass PCIe3 x2 speeds, after encoding you get 950MB/s per PCIe3 lane, so the read speed here is about 200MB/s over(Or ~10%) what's achievable on x2.

Ok? All I said was it's essentially barely faster than x2, more expensive, won't compete. It's far slower than x4 and nobody will buy it since you can get far faster drives for probably not much more money.

Was re: the article

making this drive's use of two additional PCIe lanes effectively useless.
I'm not sure it'd increase cost that much probably the same ~10% mark for raw cost since the controller wouldn't change here just some signalling.

Hmm sorry figured you were replying to me.
At leas in the US. A x4 drive roughly double the price of a x2 drive. It makes a big difference in cost.
