In case anyone wondered, the SX8100 2TB has chips on BOTH sides of the PCB, hence will NOT fit in laptops like the Dell XPS 7390. I know this first hand. Frown

Similar SLC cache design, weaker controller, less DRAM. Specifically only 128MB of DRAM and a Realtek controller that's more middle-of-the-road.

How does this compare to the sx8200? Any real world noticeable speed difference?

(Edit) from the previous thread for this model:
the SX8200 pro has 1gb DRAM vs 128mb of the 8100

So, about $15 less hardware onboard?

does anyone know if this would fit in one of the recent deal "Motile" laptops?

or should i perhaps only look at the SX8800 single sided version?

Will this work well in a USB-C NVME enclosure?

As long as the chips are cooled from both sides I think you should be fine and achieve advertised speeds.

The controller is similar to the SM2262EN in cost (don't take that as gospel - just my educated opinion), might be clocked a little lower but seems simply optimized more like the E12, as in more balanced vs. the focus on low queue depth 4K for example. And of course similar flash, plus ADATA tends to have large SLC caches (which does not directly influence cost as it's just a TLC mode switch). And they're both double-sided, abeit with the RAM on the back on the SX8100 (and the SX8800 variant up to 1TB is single-sided). Therefore primary cost difference would be in the DRAM, which at this capacity would be relatively significant at 2GB vs. 128MB, however if you're asking for bulk costs to the manufacturer (ADATA) I couldn't easily estimate that for you, however it's close enough that a DRAM vs. DRAM-less comparison could be analogous in which case your guess is in the ballpark.

For some it may not matter until they fill up the drive.. and even then, it's still going be faster than hdd.. I have a Samsung evo 860 in the laptop to extend life of a 2015 laptop.. upgrading ram on 6th gen is pointless unless it was free..

I have a 1TB Samsung NVMe I want to upgrade to 2TB but its a damn good SSD, I don't want to downgrade. People here are saying this has 128mb vs 1gb for the SX8200, what does my samsung NVMe have? Will this be a downgrade, speed-wise?

Edit: Mine is: Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB
