I seek to use my 500GB NVMe SSD as pseudo-RAM for deep learning by increasing pagefile size. My RAM's 28GB, I seek 64GB+. From the limited info I could find on DDR4, this SSD appears to have 10% its read speed - excellent, and sufficient for my application.
Reading up on others doing the same, advice has been shifting from "SSD funeral" to "no longer bad" - yet I remain uncertain, especially for my application. One train epoch reads 64GB of data, but writes ~zero. The linked SSD boasts 1.2 Petabyte writes, but no specs on reads; I presume it's much greater, if at all relevant? Assuming equal, the SSD can handle 18,000+ epochs - which makes degradation a non-issue.
This said, what's the status on this matter now, in 2019?
(As a side question, is its 2,280 Gb/s data transfer rate spec a likely typo?)
