Also the 970 Evo "PLUS" is a few bucks more for a decent upgrade:

don't really follow SSD news much but any chance you know how much the 970 PRO was when initially release? Debating if i should wait for the 980 PRO or just get this one. I do have x570 board...

Drive runs past water boiling hot when under stress. Recommend not to use for laptop.

S.M.A.R.T. temperature sensor is far from accurate.

I don't remember, but I am still guessing the 980 pro will be $400-$500 for 1tb. I may still buy one anyway, but not sure. I hate to not take advantage of pcie 4, whether I "need" it or not, since I got a x570...

Being that it will take advantage of PCIe 4.0, there will be a significant difference in read\write speeds.

Meh, spend $10 more and get a SN550 for double the capacity. Samsung drives are really hard to recommend nowadays.

why do you say samsung drives are really hard to recommend? thought they were the holy grail of SSDs.

is because of price and similar/better competition now?

From the thread on the Plus version of the drive it seems to be a running theme, but a heatsink can make a difference if your laptop has adequate cooling.

SN550 is dramless drive but if you don't plan to write anything it's ok.

SusWrite
Avg. Sustained Write Speed 878 MB/s VS 1314 MB/s Much faster sustained write speed. +50%

Samsung is for those that value reliability above all else. If that is important to you then the extra cost is definitely worth it.
