Here's what I know about the new SSD in Mac Pro so far:
Controller: Samsung (PCIe based, not available yet so not sure if it's SATA or NVMe)
NAND: 21nm Samsung MLC
Capacity: Apple's demo unit is 256GB but with current NAND you can fit up to 1024GB (1TB) of NAND on the PCB
Connector: Proprietary (i.e. not M.2)

Testing drives by running them constantly is not a test of real world use.
In the real world that 2 years they are getting out of those 2 year old SSD's, works out to be more like 6 to 8 years of normal use.
I have yet to get that much use out of a platter drive.
IDK about the rest of the people out there, but personally, if I get 3 years out of a drive, I feel good about it, and replace it!
