Back when we reviewed the Intel SSD 750, it was only available in a 400GB and 1.2TB capacity, leaving a wide expanse of capacity between those two figures.

A new 800GB SKU of the Intel SSD 750 Series of PCIe SSDs was hinted at with the Skylake launch press materials, and it appears to have been a reality:

They may not be on the shelves yet, but appearing on ARK is a pretty good indicator that these are coming soon. We don't have pricing yet, but I would suspect a cost/GB closer to the 1.2TB model than to the 400GB model, which should come in at around $700. Performance sees a slight hit for the 800GB model, likely since this is an 'uneven' number of dies for the design of the SSD DC P3500 line it was based on.

Which would you prefer - a single 800GB or a pair of 400GB SSD 750's in a RAID (now that it is possible)?

Which would I prefer? How about storage prices that aren't from 11 years ago?

The performance of these is just a bit faster than the 11 year old storage you are speaking of.

Speed is irrelevant if its too small/expensive to store anything. My CPU's cache is very fast, but I'm not going to store my porn there.

I'd prefer higher capacity drive with more performance. I need more space to store more games in NVMe/PCI-E SSD for low latency and minimal stutter in-game. So, I'm thinking about buying the 1.2TB model of Intel 750 NVMe/PCI-E SSD next year in order to save some money.

With that kind of performance capacity is paramount. But probably 800GB is a bit off with the pricing. Seriously 1.2TB is more interesting than 800 unless price is right, but that's Intel so it won't be. :)

Owning 2x 400 GB and I'm very pleased with them. Even copying from my workbench to (hardware AIC) SSD RAID10 array is now slow. Who would thought of that 20 years ago when first 20MB SSD was price of a car? LOL

The figure I used for the 800GB was just a guess on pricing, though I doubt it will come at a lower cost/GB than the 1.2TB model.

I got the 750 1.2tb about 2 months ago and love it. Got very lucky. As you know they cost about $1050.00. Well I came across a seller with one for $850.00 and is cover by a warranty. I could not pass it up. Now I wish get there butts moving and come out with say a 5 - 10 tb ssd pcie.

It is awesome they listen to their customers and released an "intermediate" version, but i'll wait for OCZ to release a consumer version of their hot swappable enterprise NVME ssd

That will not be a reality for consumer any time soon - not because of OCZ though. Consumer motherboards and operating systems do not have PCIe hot swap capability (and won't for a while).

These things are so fast already, I would just go for the lowest cost per GB.
