The price of the 480GB 900P is somewhat prohibitive but the small size of the 32GB gumstick also causes one pause; hence the 800P family with a 58GB and a 118GB model.  They bear price tags of $130 and $200, as you may remember from Al's review.  The Tech Report also had a chance to test these two Optane sticks out, with some tests not covered in our review, such as their own real world copying benchmark.  If you are looking for a second opinion, drop by and take a look.

"Intel's duo of Optane SSD 800P drives promises the same blend of impressively-low latency and performance consistency as its larger Optane devices at a price more builders can afford. We ran these drives through our storage-testing gauntlet to see whether they can make a name for themselves as primary storage."

Talk about weird sizes for these drives. Yes I gather that because of the way the chips are made they handle the spare space differently than regular SSD chips do but with Intel knowing this why didn't they just add another chip to the mix and use that as their spare space that way we would not have these weird drive sizes that they do now. Yes it would have added a tiny cost to the drives but it would also make them look a lot better in the retail market when compared to other drives.
