AMD may not support it officially, but it's already been enabled and confirmed working in the wild. So the question is whether AMD can/will force Asus, Gigabyte, etc to lock it back down: https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comm..._power_of/
For those running it now at pcie 4 speeds, they could just keep it at the current bios revision.

Most of the bios are buggy at this point though, so I would rather lose pcie 4 and get stability and better ram clocks, if those were my 2 choices.

(currently have an 1700x in a $370 Asus ch6. Going to play the waiting have a go zen 2 after supply catches up, bios bugs are worked out, and hopefully the chips start going on sale)

How incredibly arrogant of them to charge a $100 premium for PCIe 4.0 on the 1TB version, but double down on the 2TB version. Clearly they think we're stupid and won't notice.

IMO these are not worth 2x premium over PCIe3.0 drives. 99% of the people won't notice any difference.
Far more interested in a 2x1TB raid vs this setup. What's the fastest 4.0 speeds/drive/controller thus far ?

Bought the first iteration of this drive on an Amazon deal a week ago. $49 for a 512GB for a new build. Haven't tried it yet as some of my other parts have been delayed coming in. Not sure how much faster these would be.

Back on the day, it used to be about how many pci or isa slots you had. Then along came AGP which had a pretty short life span.

Then came PCI-e and gotta upgrade that motherboard for the latest in fast gpu's... then came the obsessions with huge power supplies... then came SLI using multi PCI-e...

Now they want you to upgrade a mb for more storage speed... yet there's no software out there to take advantage of this increase... graphics can justify, but storage cannot.

I'd expect these to drop like a rock by late fall.

Keep in mind these drives run super hot, so a heat sink is required with proper cooling or speed will be reduced.

Any comments on replacing the Samsung PM961 in a Razer blade? I just don't want to slow it down from it's default speed a lot, but if I won't notice the difference using a cheaper ssd, that would be great.

Im using a WD Black 1TB in my 2017 Blade 14. Runs really well. Idles at 42°. 3.5k read 3.2 write. I got the sabrent rocket 3.0 1tb to compare and man that thing runs hot. Similar speeds but idles at 61°. I added thermal pads on the rocket and only 2° difference. The wd black also seems to use less power which doesn't affect battery runtime. The rocket decreased it by 30 minutes. Had the intel 660p but constantly kept getting locked up during large 700gb transfers.

Thanks for sharing your experience. Looks like wd black is the way to go. I really want to preserve my battery life. It's just that we black is quite expensive.

Lol. You can say the same for SATA vs NVME.
This is true, but the price difference isn't substantial between Sata and NVME PCIE 3.0 drives so it makes sense to get an NVME if you have an M2 slot. You pay double for PCIE 4.0, so that's why it's not worth it right now.

Now they are about the same but when NVME first can out, they were insanely expensive. Heck, Samsung 970 Pro is still is and people willing to pay the premium to save like 5 seconds.

I have a Lenovo Y-700 ISK15 with a quad 6700. It came with a PM961 and I replaced it with a 1TB 970 EVO. No increase in temp.

A lot of the cheaper 1TB+ drives do have higher temps, so you definitely need to research that brand you are considering.

Good luck
