It took some convincing, but KIOXIA sent me two of their latest Enterprise SSDs, the PM6 SAS 24G drive, and the CM6 PCIe NVMe drive, and I test them using the MegaRAID card and ‘Elrond’ storage enclosure sent to me by Broadcom.

How do the drives perform? Well, watch the video and find out!

And see all the gory details on my Pi PCI Express website: https://pipci.jeffgeerling.com
