It's a great choice for a gaming build per the TweakTown review here:

The benchmarks look either on par or better than the 970 evo plus. Any drawbacks to going with this vs Samsung?

Good addition to Ps5 & gaming machines with support for pcie4
I hope so. Sony hasn't released the approved list of NVME drives though, so don't run out and buy one for a PS5 it may not work with.

OTOH who am I kidding. Getting a PS5 is like finding a unicorn.

That question came to mind too but decided to stick with Samsung. If I'm going to have both drivers at nearly the same speed whether it's gen 3 or gen 4, similar speed is similar speed... I decided to go with the one with a lot more recognition. If it ever comes a time to sell off your computer and you do a clean wipe on that SSD, Samsung will give you an edge on resale. That and support should be more reliable but either way I don't think either SSD will require support for most people.

Plus cloning with the Samsung software is supposedly best on the market.

Gen 4 interface but Gen 3 speeds, so dont let the marketing fool you. To be a real Gen 4 drive you need R/W to be about 5000/4000+. Still this is a good price since a 2TB real Gen 4 drive will cost you over $300.

Samsung generally has better flash memory that last longer in practice. So if you're looking to use and (slightly) abuse, go with the 970. If upgrading often or normal use with the worst being running a game or two, it won't really matter.

Also, sustained performance is usually much higher with Samsung. Most drives benchmark well with burst or short term loads because that's the bulk of consumer use patterns. If you have a need for large transfers regularly (e.g. cache writes), the 970 is a solid option over nearly everything cheaper.


Edit: Hm.. looks like I misquoted.
