TBW comes up every time I see a 660p, 665p, P1 or other QLC drive..

You'd have to write 200GB per day, 365 days a year for over 4 years to get to 300 TBW endurance. How many of you are writing even 1/100th that?
A fair point, but if say you have this as an OS drive or do anything that uses a lot of swap space (video editing comes to mind) and plan on keeping it for 10 years, that number drops to 80gb a day where it's conceivable it could become an issue, eventually. I tend to keep my tech for as long as it's viable (I'm still rocking my 2500k rig that's going to be 10 years old next year as a plex server / secondary workstation) so for me it's something to consider, at least.
That would be impossible. Even at 2000 MBps you'll be able to write aprox 173 TB in 24 hours. 😉

Relatively slow for an NVME drive. WD Blue is much faster.

Pretty decent daily drive NVME ssd. Good enough for almost anything.
Wondering if there is anything significant missing in this drive since Intel was the first manufacturer that pushed a lot QLC SSDs.

Blue also has a better TBW (600 vs 300 on this drive), being TLC vs QLC

$12 more for 2x TBW capabilities seems worth it. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/wd-b...Id=6379925

Same price on Amazon. Seems to be the new regular price.

Or this Sandisk [bestbuy.com] for $90, which appears to be the same drive as the WD Blue SN550. For anyone considering the Intel drive, I'd seriously spend the extra $7 for this one instead.

Doesn't the 665p have DRAM though, compared to the SN550 and P1? Wouldn't that affect anything or no? AFAIK, DRAM is optimal for lifespan and it serves as a map. Fill me with insight, please. I just need a good SSD for a mid-range build, mainly for eSports gaming.

None of them have DRAM. The WD Blue (and presumably the Sandisk I linked above) is still significantly faster, and in tests has come pretty close to the WD Black.

ETA: My mistake, the Intel does have DRAM, which makes it a mystery why it's slower than some DRAM-less drives.

It does have DRAM according to several sources, as well as SSD tier lists such as this one: https://linustechtips.com/topic/1...tier-list/

There is also a similar tier list on the buildapcsales subreddit. Anyways, I'm not going to be engaging in video anything or utilizing big files. It should be sufficient, right? I'm coming from SATA, which I personally find extremely fast, so the 4x speed increase from NVMe should be more than plenty I assume?
