It seems a little odd for an Enterprise SSD to have only a three year warranty, and then decrease in IOPS as the size gets bigger. The sizes are most likely 128GB, 256GB, 384GB and 512GB each with 28% over provisioning, which is at least inline with standard enterprise products. Nevertheless, if we get one in to test, we will test it! Prices and release dates are as yet unannounced.
