Seems it uses a Realtek RTL9303 chip, which actually is Layer 3 (there is also a Layer 3 model of this switch) and supports full 160Gbps switching:
If you want PCI-E 4.0 try the Intel D7 series:
Or their other series for PCI 3.x:
Yea the 5950X is much faster than the i9-7900X i had. No more CPU bottlenecks now, its combined with a RTX2080 Super and the GPU is the bottleneck now. (100% load in certain games instead of the CPU)
The 5950X has 16 cores vs your 24 on the Xeon 8260M , but it's clock speeds are much higher so...
Using the P3700 1.6TB just as a regular workstation drive, doing webdevelopment, running vms, docker, etc. Some gaming.
Was on X299 with Intel but upgraded to X570 and AMD 5950X now so going for the 980 Pro 2TB.
Been using a Intel P3700 now for 4 years on my developer workstation and its still 100%, only 150TB total reads/writes.
I mean the newer MP600 Pro, it's of the same speed. Don't confuse with the original MP 600.
And you are right, the 980 2TB is 1.2PB as well, it's listed incorrectly as 600TB...
I agree about getting something else for desktop usage. Problem with the 980 Pro is they switched to TLC instead of MLC for the 970 pro and it's endurance is much lower. Only 600TB.
Even competitors like the WD SN850 are 1.2PB. Or Corsair MP600 Pro at 1.4PB. (Even though they also use TLC)
The GUI looks exactly like the GUI that came with my Asus X299 PRO/SE which also has IPMI. And it also has the exact same problem that KVM does not work with a discrete graphics card installed, which makes it pretty useless in the case of a workstation.
Also the GUI was full of warnings and...
Don't go for Asus boards with IPMI, i have a Asus X299 PRO/SE motherboard which has IPMI and it's practically unusable, the GUI sucks, is very limited and full of bugs, hardly gets any updates. Also most of the sensor values don't even work, show weird values and alerts while nothing is wrong...
Intel X520 can do this as well. Except (for some strange reason) it won't accept 1G SFP's in VMWARE.
Also if you want it vendor-lock free, don't get an original Intel branded card from retail or DELL/HP, get a third party card with an original Intel X520 chip, they are vendor-lock free.
Yea it just sucks Samsung provides no drivers, firmware or any support at all with these drives, yet most major retailers just sell them.
I returned my PM1735 in the end.
Such a shame Intel is going to stop making SSD's.
Purchased a AMD platform with PCI-E 4.0 now and looking for a drive...
I have a ASUS X299 PRO/SE motherboard, PCI-E 3.0 only and it did work for me there. Did not test booting from it.
I returned the PM1735 in the end, without proper driver support it's not worth the money. Sticking with the Intel P3700 for now and waiting for Samsung to release it's 980 Pro in...
So the strange thing is, it differs alot.
In here the Samsung seems limited to around 1530 MB/s, and the Intel P3700 1.6TB HHHL which should be slower, gets the speed it should.
Windows file copy from SSD to SSD is also limited to around 1500 MB/s. (Sequential big file copy)...
Well thats odd, i just purchased this from a regular hardware store. It's also widely available here in multiple shops.
Should i return it? It cost over 1200 USD..
