    Fyi, I just bought the pcie version of ssd from the same seller on ebay. It has intel warranty until 2020 and intel ssd toolbox shows full info.

    Bought one of the AIC ones (seller accepted a BO of $650) and installed it today. I see impossible amounts of writes reported by both the SSD Tool Box and SMART (like ~2PB from some testing over 3 hours), I assume the Oracle firmware is reporting writes in different unit and that's throwing the Tool Box / SMART off? Or is there something horribly wrong going on?

    Anybody else have luck finding the firmware for this? I could only find it on some Chinese PCEva.com.cn site that requires an invite.

    I am the admin from PCEVA.com.cn,Please find firmware files attached.

    You will need to use NVMe-cli(under Linux) to update the firmware.

    Thanks! Looks like I might need to do it through Linux, tried doing it with the native esxi NVMe update commands but it says:

    [root@esxi04lab:~] esxcli nvme device firmware download -A vmhba0 -f /tmp/8DV1RA11.bin -s 1
    Failed to commit downloaded firmware to slot 1, 0x2

    Please keep us updated. I have one of these as well and probably should do a firmware update too.

    Here are the firmware changes in case anyone is interested: Minimum Supported Card Firmware Version - Oracle® Flash Accelerator F160 PCIe Card and Oracle 1.6 TB NVMe SSD Product Notes

    This is worth noting too:
    • If your Oracle Flash Accelerator F160 PCIe Cards have RA10 or lower, you must upgrade to RA11 before upgrading to RA12 or RA13.

    • If your Oracle Flash Accelerator F160 PCIe Cards have RA11 or RA12, you can upgrade directly to RA13.

    Success! I used Ubuntu 16 to do this. So quick steps:
    Add universe to apt-get using sudo apt-add-repository universe
    apt-get update
    apt-get install nvme-cli
    Download the 11 version firmware, activate the firmware as shown in the picture posted by neeyuese, if that goes well you can issue a sudo nvme reset /dev/nvme0 command for the firmware to take effect without rebooting. To verify it has updated run sudo nvme fw-load /dev/nvme0 and make sure it is on version 11. Repeat for version 13.

    On Ubuntu
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    sudo apt-get install nvme-cli
    sudo nvme list
    sudo nvme fw-download /dev/nvme__ --fw='/__/8DV1RA11.bin'
    sudo nvme fw-activate /dev/nvme__ --action=1
    sudo nvme reset /dev/nvme__
    sudo nvme list
    sudo nvme fw-download /dev/nvme__ --fw='/__/8DV1RA13.bin'

    How do these compare performance wise to the intel 750 for something like VM storage on zfs? Seems to perform worse at low queue depths?

    for sure this drive have much more endurance than intel 750. I cant say which would perform better, but typically enterprise would perform better in a server environment.

    Wow, the seller "vineandbrown" accepted a $600 offer. Looks like I found my new workstation boot drive.

    Thanks for sharing!
