    Now we just need Thunderbolt 4 for the poor Mac users.

    I plan to do a new threadripper build late this year or early next. glad to see pcie4 supported devices already!

    This could make a great boot drive or media cache drive.

    That heatsink is massive! Sad that Intel isn't pushing PCIe harder (looking at you new Mac Pro).

    Why ThreadRipper? I'm getting a Ryzen 9 3950X: new gen, 16 cores 32 threads, 3.5-4.7 GHz, works on regular boards with regular chipsets

    Threadripper has 64 pcie lanes, while Ryzen only has 24. A pcie ssd uses 4 lanes, and a GPU uses 16 lanes. Threadripper gives far more options for a workstation.

    Ah, OK. I'm going for single GPU, so I don't have a bottleneck here.

    It's TLC chips: https://www.enterprisestorageforum.c...and-flash.html & https://www.pcworld.com/article/2998...advertise.html

    While I expect that things have changed for the better in recent years, TLC is still the "bargain" method of making storage devices.

    So: fast interconnect to slow chips. I've seen this before, it doesn't work great. Pass.
