Sometime a more enterprise focused review was posted. Take for example this article:



As you can see, even high-end Memblaze SSDs are not match for Optane.

This other article shows Samsung's ZET as quite competitive, still 2X slower than Optane:



Moreover Samsung Z-NAND drives lack a product refresh, so am I not sure about their future availability.

Surely Optane was not a panacea at all, but was an interesting product and I am sorry to see it gone.
