Interesting, repped.

For a review of this alongside some other top drives:

https://www.tomshardware.com/revi...608-3.html

Summary:

The 970 EVO Plus lands it third place overall, just behind the new $150 Adata XPG SX8200 Pro ( https://www.rakuten.com/shop/adat...gJbOcB3Vzg), and the Samsung 970 PRO. Again, the 970 EVO Plus destroys the non-Plus model and even surpasses the Phison E12-powered BPX Pro.

EDIT: I went with the 2TB Sabrent Rocket a couple weeks ago myself and love it (3k+ read/write bench)

Very good price. These recently came out, I didn't expect them to be under 190 this fast. I got mine a while back with Google express deal for $210.

Amazing deal! This is the lowest I've seen this device sold and the 1tb model has the best performance.

This is available for free shipping as of 7:39AM CST. Even though I have a Fry's about 20 miles away from me, I chose free shipping to save on diesel (discount instantly taken in cart).

Great deal of you need the high rewrite plus piece of mind (warm and fuzzys) over the sx8200 pro.

For the average person who is still making regular backups, the sx8200 pro on sale may be more attractive.

Yeah really. $187.49 is a far cry from the currently SX8200 front page deal. Is it worth $60 more when it loses out in a lot of the other benchmarks?

It is subjective, of course. It may be worth for someone who wants the best in reliability. Samsung still boasts the best reliability record as well as TBW warranty. There's also name recognition as well. Besides, in real life usage, it would be impossible to tell one nvme drive from another, benchmark differences notwithstanding. Hell, most people would would not tell the difference between nvme and SATA SSDs either lol

This is pretty much true. I had mostly used the NVME drives for gaming and loading windows faster. Until I got into Astrophotography and needed the processor, memory and NVME speeds to stack and process photos faster. Made a huge difference between waiting 2 hours to just less than an hour stacking 200+ raw image files.

Damn, and I just got the 2 TB Sabrent for $260 last week. I've been waiting forever for an EVO to go on sale to a point I might have even been ok with getting less storage to go with Samsung.

I'm in the market, I'm currently running a 256gb m.2 with a 1tb sata SSD using StoreMI.

My dilemma is, I read ITX boards have a short enough run that PCIe gen4 can technically be supported without the additional power requirements the larger boards need. I'm wondering if that means I can install & benefit from the newer PCIe gen 4 m.2 drives without having to get a 570 chipset board? My mb is the ASRock x470 ITX/AC. I'm unsure it that's something that'll just work or if the manufacturer needs to enable it when they release the Ryzen 3000 series update. I'm upgrading my 14nm Ryzen 5 CPU as well, it's time.
