I don't mind the price, and hey it's fun to get a new storage technology that's currently the best

The 800P is the 905P with the Sequential Q32 speeds (which are mostly irrelevant) cut in half

A lot of the other speeds are lower too, you said you wanted the best.

I have both (as well as a bunch of other Optane drives).

The 905P is much faster both at the 4KQ1T1 and sequential side of the equation.

If you have the $ to play with cool tech toys (what Optane essentially is) the 905P is pretty amazing, especially when it comes to boot times.

If you have $ to burn you can even use a 905P to cache a huge SATA SSD like the 8TB Micron drive. The combination of speed and capacity would put you at a point far beyond what we will see in 2019 from a single drive solution.

Alright. I'll probably buy it, since I don't need the absolute best performance, and the 4KQ1T1 speed is still miles ahead of normal NVMes.

(((rip your wallet tho for buying the 905p, ever)))
