I'd have a question. The interface is still PCIE-3 and only 4 lanes at max, I must that in the photo they seem only 2 times, so how will it be faster than an NVME drive, when this one almost saturates the bandwith?

As you suggest with the interfaces the same the maximum sequential rates will be similar but where this leaps ahead is the latency on random IO, and the write-wear is pretty good too.

A premium price for that black pcb though

Nothing so far has tempted me to upgrade my trusty Samsung 850 Pro 512GB SATA3 drive... I do have a NVMe PCI 3.0 boot drive though, but it doesn't feel faster to me.

Oh well at least Intel made it with a black PCB.
