It also arrives in an HHHL version, using a PCIe x8 slot, with the read/write speeds scaling up to an insane 6.4GB/sec and 3GB/sec, respectively.

The new PM1725a isn't going to be your next gaming SSD, as it's an enterprise-class drive for 24/7/365 operation in high-performance, and low latency environments. Samsung's epic enterprise PM1725a uses just 23W during active periods, and only 7.7W when idle. It weighs only 190g, and will roll out to enterprise machines later this year.
