    anyone know how this will work in it's m.2 format? normally 905p is 12v but m.2 is only 3.3v, which means current involved is well over 4-5 Amps. I can see if intel changes controller to that similar of 800p to reduce power consumption greatly and uses way less, would that work?

    probably $500-550 for the 380gb m.2 version. or about $600 if they charge a premium which I think they will, m.2 22110 is meant for enterprise.

    its very unlikely, the link that oleNBR posted has Intel rep saying it will be 3.3v so its like any other m.2 drives, my only doubt is how good will it be, thinking that both the 2.5/PCIe require a more massive size, but maybe its scale down in everything, size and performance, but will keep my eye on the Q3 release to see if its performs as its big brothers.

    i wouldnt doubt that performance will be a cut below. maybe lower sequential or random performance, more so on sequential read/write those prob takes most power imho. problem is this also comes with 7 channel so its meant for full 7 channel sequential performance like the u.2 or PCIE version. im not sure where they can really cut power to make it work with 3.3v, imho the highest m.2 SSD i've seen uses like 3 Amps which is crazy, that comes to around 10w from m.2 at 3.3v.

    if they can reduce the 14-16w U.2 version to just 10w then its doable.

    Perhaps the controller is a new model that consumes less power. Or they might just throttle the device when power consumption hits the threshold.

    There is not a big market for Optane right now so I’m not surprised no new products are releasing. They need gen 2 to roll out with increased density before the chips are remotely profitable.
