Probably a dumb question but will this suffer from the same issues that other 2xnm drives have? Or are they using different nand chips?

Actually a really good question man, I guess nobody will be able to tell until there have been a couple of thorough reviews and customer purchase stories. So far 2xnm seems to be in its infancy and pretty slow compared to the preexisting 34nm architecture, that coupled with the lower space you get on finalised products doesn't really justify their purchase unless their prices are significantly less than their 34nm counterparts

Like I said in another thread. These are real, the press release came directly from G.Skill and samples are being sent to reviewers as we speak.

I have recently purchased a Corsair F115, for my P-6831FX laptop (upgraded from a non-OEM 7200 RPM HDD, which is now the backup/program drive). The upgrade went without hick-ups, a bit slow compared to my desktop. Two weeks into use I got a "No Operating System Detected" on BIOS boot up, so I reinstalled and so far so good. Not sure what that was about; potentially a Phoenix BIOS clashing with SandForce, hence not recommended for AMD/Gigabyte boards due to the known issues (i.e. not able to update firmware on AMD mobos). Over all pretty happy so far with the system responsivness.
