There are bars for an Optane NVMe SSD (P4800X?) so you can see Apache Pass is ~3x the performance of that. There are plenty of public benchmarks of the P4800X so you could extrapolate from there. Pricing is still a big open question though.

    can't you just go buy one and do your own tests? (NT)anonymous22019/03/14 08:18 PM
