Pcie 2.0 x8 and 630MB/s + 95,000 IOPS writes. These cards also run hot with active power at 30W.

I would pass.

Iirc those also require specific drivers as they are not NVME quite yet, but might be wrong, been a while.

I've heard endurance on these is great. I think the linux kernel has drivers from my research. I guess I'll find out :) I thought these were "fair" performance cards & at sub $100/TB I thought it was decent. I don't need a whole lot of writes, my vms are mostly read. It is a shame every time I post a deal the negative nancies come out. Hopefully someone can make use of these. I snagged two. If you don't like them you can always return them, although at your own cost. Shouldn't cost much to return 2 pci-e cards.

My case airflow is already good enough to keep a 300w rtx 3k series cool I'm not worried about 30w.

These drives are most likely exactly what a couple people on here may be looking for/need. Thanks for posting :)

Lol, sorry if you got that impression, was just mentioning it;)

Garbage for one, great deal for somebody else, always depends on your needs :)

might be annoying to run in linux. The fusion IO drives at least have people working on keeping the drivers alive on modern kernels, I wasn't able to find the same for these (though perhaps looked in wrong place)

I think this runs under the "mtip32xx" mainline kernel driver. When I get it I'll post something up in the storage forum.

There are drivers for it on windows server 2012R2, so maybe they work on newer 2019/2016/win10?

Received, downloaded drivers from Micron site for Windows and their Storage Exec GUI. Works fine (HP model) but their Storage GUI says the drive has met it's lifetime TBW. Drive seemed like it might have been new. It was pristine and there was a Micron info card sealed in a packet with alternate half height bracket and the info card had the old driver url address on it like it was original electrostatic packaging. So I wouldn't have been surprised if it was new.

So surprising it says TBW has been met which is true is disappointing. It is performing at specs in Crystal Disk Mark.

Anyone else receive one and test?
