    They (AMD/intel/etc.) already have trouble filling the current iteration with bandwidth it seems, not sure they aren't moving a bit fast here.

    More important for enterprise/servers - although at the other end, small form factors - this means smaller devices with smaller connectors.

    I'm wondering if the future is moving towards having the SSDs on PCI-E lanes if they don't need to stuff a few more PCI-E lanes into the CPU/Mobo. That way it can handle all the bandwith that will be required with multiple fast drives and a Vid, or multiple, card(s) on it ......

    With how few lanes Intel gives on mainstream platforms this is needed.
