up to 1030 MB/s is a bit like me saying I am less than 100 years old? My kids dispute this fact. ;-)

NVMe-competitive performance... ????

Hummmm.... last time I checked (yesterday) even the average, everyday budget line (Gen3) Nvme drives can manage about 2000-2500MB/s, and top end ones going up to ~3600, so whazzzuppp with this statement.

Granted, most portable drives won't run that fast, and yea, 1030MB/s is way faster than SATA drives, but just sayin that statement seems to be stretchin things a little IMHO... :rolleyes:.:laugh:.:shadedshu:
