Cheapest by a huge margin. All variants are on sale, but only some come with the enclosure half off if you are going to clone an existing drive!

I bought a $230 ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 2TB for my new build. In real world use, will I really be able to tell a difference between the Rocket gen 4 2TB and the XPG? If not, I'll wait until Gen4 SSDs are approaching their maximum speeds because these are really first gen.

I believe the SX8200 uses SLC for cache whereas this uses DDR4 RAM, but verify that. The SX8200, is it TLC or QLC? This is TLC.

I am going to return my unopened 970 EVO Plus ($299) for this because it appears to be significantly faster.

My last PC upgrade was 7 years ago. I'm building this one to last a while. I would say get this because games may start getting optimized for nvme due to the consoles. It's the same reason I'm going with 8 cores in the 5800X vs 6 in the 5600X. My current CPU is a 4670 (4/4) and compared to the slightly higher 4/8 CPU, it shows significant difference in modern day benchmarks. I should've spent the extra money then and gotten hyperthreading.

How does this compare to the new Samsung 980 pro? Is this a really good deal?

I'm on the same boat. I'm running a 4770 and the only thing I've upgraded in 7 yrs is the gpu to a 1070 and added hard drives.

I honestly should get a gen 3 nvme but what the hell let's go big 🤣. Thx OP. Bought and repped

So is 970 EVO Plus a better option for my PCIe Gen3 Motherboard? That has Sequential read and write performance levels of up to 3,500MB/s and 3,300MB/s and costs the same...

According to Amazon's page the 500 GB model is $150 and can reach over 6,000 MB/s. For 2TB, you're looking at roughly $600, or double the cost of this for only 50% more performance. I'd say for PCIe 4.0, 4k+ read/writes, decent warranty, TLC, DRAM cache, this is a good deal.

Yes. Better warranty, better cache, better speeds. If you can find it in stock. Or just go with Sabrent's PCIe 3.0 version. Whichever is cheaper.

In real world performance no, for the most part.. just think about the tasks done on a PC, boot.. maybe upto 1 second diff. Installing programs less than 15 seconds difference.. this is because throughput of 100-200MB/SEC adds up over 100gb program install but is also bound by compression and other system specs. I've noticed real world copying of files is NOT as fast.. maybe 1.25GB/SEC on nvme 4... On nvme 3 you will max around 1.0GB/SEC this is the difference between a cached write benchmark and moving files around via cmd copy and explorer copy. Coming from a hdd it's still insanely fast. If people are STILL on hdd this is what they are missing.. tasks that you ordinarily would walk away from the PC to complete get done in a tolerable amount of time to just wait there...
