    Same as title.

    Also how is the Optane SSD? You know, for science. But mainly how is the Raven?

    History:

    1. Sunder asks how the Optane SSD is....and how the Raven is.
    2. Sunder waits to make sure he really wants the drive.
    3. Sees sale on Newegg ending soon, buys SSD on March 15th.
    4. SSD ships on March 15th. Will deliver Tuesday march 20.
    5. Sunder March 19th on a lark goes looking for info about said Optane SSD. Finds Promotion details. Gets nervous when promotion was only for the first run of Optans and ended Jan 31 or while supplies last. Sunder wonders if Newegg shipped a non-SC edition Optane.
    6. More nervous Sunder trades his LTI Khartu Al for a Raven code the morning the drive will arrive.
    7. Drive arrives and is SC Edition Optane with Raven code. FML
    8. Sunder has a Raven code he doesn't know what to do with.

    March 22:
    9. Put the Optane in, Windows sees it.
    10. Copied SC over. SC loads a bit faster. Hurray!

    As for the Optane, it's fast but it's not light speeds. If you have something like the Samsung Evo 960, you get similar results. The specialty of the Optane is that it can handle many more calls at the sime time compared to the Evo 960, but SC really doesn't make enough calls right now to really slow down the Evo 960.... so it's not entirely worth the extra money.

    I can say that the Optane 900p is faster than my old OCZ Vertex 3s, but they are 5 year old SSDs. I think this is the video you want to watch.



    If it's just for your gaming, then no. It's not worth it. If you do a bunch of RAM intense projects where you need a RAM Disk, then yeah.

    As for the Raven.... meh. I'm not a fan. I'm a tank :smile:

    Thank you! My SSD is an older Samsung 850 Pro. Does a good job but with the price cut in half for the Optane than what it was last year its looking more attractive.

    I love it. It's currently unbeatable. It's going to be nerfed according to the Devs with the next patch. I got n mine on the gray market on eBay, the Optane is small and expensive and speeds things up by a second.

    I thought I had heard the policy was changed to only refund the money minus the price of the ship... about $200... sounds like a good plan but I don't think it would stand up in a legal battle....

    It flies fine, eats shield, a really nasty bugger to fight.
