Well. You might not be able to buy them... But I can locally as my outlets stock enterprise/workstation gear. But the point was to demonstrate the existence of the technology... And in particular the form factor.
If you want something more consumer level... You have the Asus Hyper M.2 drive.
You also have the Asrock Ultra Quad M.2.
There are 2x nvme to PCI-E adapters that get flogged cheaply off ebay, but that would be limited to 8x PCI-E lanes (As each nvme drive has a compliment of 4x PCI-E 3.0 lanes as a max).
well, I asked for consumer products - these are enterprise products and technically speaking they are RAID on a card devices with several SSDs mounted into M.2 slots on the card
And why wouldn't you use multiple nvme cards to achieve it? They are so damn cheap these days.
Memory transactions tend to be highly parallel, thus you use multiple memory chips to increase performance, this just takes that same concept and expands upon it.
Either way. Point is... PC definitely has faster SSD's than the Playstation 5, thus rendering Cerny's prior statement as blatantly false and misleading.
Sorry Pemalite, I value your knowledge a lot, but you are really going out of your way to not accept defeat. Everybody and Cerny is talking about regular and available to customer solution. If you so much want to make exotic solutions, multiple cards, etc you can get above that.
As I said before Cerny wasn't lying (and you were also wrong on the fact that they wouldn't put SSD, then that if they put it would be small because of price, and now that it wouldn't be that fast) but certainly not being full transparent and also hyperbolic.
If their solution was faster than any other common solution available for consumer then he wasn't lying, although if you want to be argumentative just to win you can try and go that solutions for super computers would be much above whatever Sony would use. Still that would be irrelevant, because only the craziest would expect a console costing 500 to be more powerful than anything possible on PCs or supercomputer. You don't need to bring very expensive solutions to say Cerny was lying.
