I believe the 512GB is the old version and the 500GB is the newer one.

New one is $110 for 250GB

500GB version is $200

Speed and color of board.

> Old version
Max seq. Read: 2050 Mbps
Max seq. Write: 800 Mbps
4k random Read: 170,000 IOPS
4k random Write: 134,000 IOPS
Board color: Blue

> New version
Max seq. Read: 3400 Mbps
Max seq. Write: 2500 Mbps
4k random Read: 410,000 IOPS
4k random Write: 330,000 IOPS
Board color: Black

As you know, this is NVMe. I think old version fast enough but if you need more speed, you'd better choose new version or samsung 970 series.

New one is about as fast as the Samsung EVO 970 which are among the fastest consumer drives. The old ones were only slightly faster than a SATA 2.5" (MX500 levels of performance). This would be mainly for people who need the form factor (such as for a laptop) otherwise a cheaper 2.5" drive might give you similar performance. Good price for what it is though.

Not really sure about the different SSD specs but am I correct in assuming this will work with my Asrock x370 pro4 mobo?

Your board has two slots according to the manufacturer's page and the review you linked.

1 Ultra M.2 (PCIe Gen3 x4), 1 M.2 (SATA3)

This one goes in the Ultra M.2 PCIe (another name for NVME). So yes, it will work if you put it in the right slot. Consult your manual as to which one is which.

I'm using a Samsun Evo 960 MVMe ssd. If you don't transfer massive amount of data, you will never see the marginal improvement. Buy this and save money.

Thank you. According to a review, there are (2) x16 slots, one of which is wired as x4 and shares bandwidth with the m2. Does that mean if I occupy the normal x16 with my gtx1080 and install an m2 drive, I shouldnt have any bandwidth issues?

FYI for those on the hunt:

Old version has G1 in the model.
New version has G2 in the model.

Just bought one for this Dell Inspiron 5675 I got on sale a few days ago. I saw the mobo had space for an nvme drive, so I'll be putting this as my boot drive.

Thanks! Just ordered the new XPS 15 with 256GB, wanted to upgrade to 512GB myself, cheaper than spending $200+ on dell!

Yes thats exactly what it means. Do that just to be safe but it might not make a huge difference. Gamers Nexus found that 2x Titan V was need to saturate x16. Even at x12 and 4 to the ssd you should be okay. What wouldnt work well is two Titan Vs or two 1180's when they finally get released.

I have one, It's plenty fast, faster than my SATA SSD's. My only complaint would be the operating temperature, I moved it off the motherboard to an expansion card with more airflow; it dropped a few degrees, but still seems too hot. It has a 5 year warranty and the monitoring software say's it's operating within spec so I guess it's covered.
