So there's a V84 coming? :P

Wouldn't it be simple to create a 125GB cut down of that?

I'm assuming these are using the RocketRaid controller... Good branding scheme. Now let's see some in-depth reviews and customer [neutral] usage feedback. I need to see its performance on the AMD platform with a X2.

The M84 has me interested for home (256GB) - perfect capacity for me. I'm a little cautious about the added PCIe latency and its impact.

Good to have a PCIe SSD competitor. Majority of Desktop enthusiasts aren't aware of how many PCIe SSD products there already are in the Enterprise world (nor the brands expect whatever has high PR).

na.. the Rocket RAID is a POS... but I can't comment on technical details here.

It doesn't really make much sense to create a 120 GB solution unless you want to go with a two-drive RAID, but then you give up quite a bit of performance.
