PCper has a video on this bad boy.

Win 8.1 boot drive will see on load in.

Makes one think of Upgrading hard. Need PCI 3.0 slot.

Easier to watch a video than read I guess. ;)

But yeah, being bootable is a nice addition but I certainly don't think that PCI-E 3.0 is an issue. Anyone company that can afford an array of these drives will likely have a VERY good supporting infrastructure.

Question

Simply wow.

One thing I quite was not clear on, is why even bother with with NVMe-SATA Express. Was that an attempt on Intel's side to be diplomatic and try not to sideline the SATA consortium (not stepping on too many toes)? What would Intel loose if they went straight to NVMe-8639 SFF, instead of the NVMe-SATAe?

What am I missing?

It isn't necessarily what they loose but what they GAIN. Broader forwards compatibility is a must for the enterprise market.
