Looks like Linus will have to rebuild his servers again.  Haha

"Samsung claims the E-SSD drive will achieve PCIe Gen4x4"

"... 24 NVMe drives will be about 7.5x faster than a single NVMe drive, whereas the same number of NVMe-oF SSDs will be about 23x faster than a single drive. "

So it's like PCIe over ethernet?

So now when your NIC fails, you can lose all your data with it.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3600 / GPU: Radeon HD7970 GHz 3GB(upgrade pending) / RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 2x8GB DDR4-3200
MOBO: MSI B450m Gaming Plus / NVME: Corsair MP510 240GB / Case: TT Core v21 / PSU: Seasonic 750W / OS: Win 10 Pro

Actually its going to do the exact opposite of what the article title suggests

 

Samsung made this so that the data going on/off the drive will bypass the CPU and any accompanying bandwidth restrictions.

 

So this will save the CPU a lot of work instead of killing it. And the CPU is not being made redundant either. Its still clearly an expansion card and has to go on a mobo with a CPU.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

I'm not sure what this does except make all your data into small 1500 byte packets. Why would anyone want that?

1) just because it uses rj45 ports does not mean it uses IP and/or Ethernet. Fiberchannel for example can use the same standard cables as Ethernet despite being two different protocols. 

2) Even if it uses the IP over Ethernet doesn't mean it is limited to 1500 byte sized packages (that's just the de facto standard for internet traffic). You can run IP with mtu sizes of up to 9000 bytes if you want. Many do. It's called jumbo frames.

Also I/O operations on storage devices happen in their sector sizes which are 512 bytes or 4096 bytes, RDMA is also a requirement here.

Insane. I wonder when they'll release consumer variant of their Z SSD though.
