No. Not even worth it over regular sata ssd for gaming. These are more for transferring large files but people do get them for the max of one second faster load time for nvme vs sata. Gen 4 vs gen 3 is almost negligible for gaming.

It's sad that they are not doing a price adjustment
Wow great price on both. P41 seems to be the best drive on the market.
Ask and ye shall receive. You can compare (almost) any two drives here:

TLDR: looks like they trade blows, neither is massively better, but I'd probably take the Hynix at the same price. As I posted above, you should consider the Firecuda 520 deal.

Nice one thank you OP, luckily I hadn't opened yet the P31 from the last deal a couple weeks ago so just set up a free return on it and ordered this, $10 saved and an even better deal on a great drive!

Ordered the 2TB FIrecuda Gen 4 from Newegg yesterday for $180. It's still up and I still think it is a better deal, even for PCIe 3.0:

https://slickdeals.net/f/15852868-2tb-seagate-firecuda-520-pcie-gen-4-x4-nvme-1-3-m-2-2280-solid-state-drive-180-free-shipping?attrsrc=search%3Aterm%3Afirecuda%202tb%7Csearch%3Apage%3A1%7Csearch%3Aposition%3A1%7Csearch%3Aresult_type%3Athread%7Csearch%3Aresult_id%3A15852868&src=SiteSearchV2Algo1

The main difference is the massively better 3x more write endurance (not that this one is bad), and future proofing for a future PCIE 4.0 system (or better performance if your current setup already has 4.0).

The longevity benefit for the Firecuda is worth the $10 extra for me so I won't cancel my order. If you are using it for a laptop, then this will probably be better because this particular drive is so power efficient. I think the Seagate is also double layer and won't fit in some systems.

Edit:

Performance comparison:

https://www.anandtech.com/bench/p...29?vs=2744

The Firecuda is faster across the board, including under heavy load where both drives are within PCIe 3.0 bandwidth constraints. So even if you don't have a PCIe 4.0 slot available, there are real latency and throughput benefits to the Seagate.

running FSTRIM on the Firecuda renders the drive unusable while it is trimming. If you can schedule it during non demand hours it's indeed a great deal. If you can't (such as duty is 24x7), it's a deal breaker.

curious how Hynix does when it goes beyond the predicted life. On Samsungs (both Pro and Evo, 960 thru 980) they can well past 300%...

Good to know. This is my game drive so not an issue for me. I have a 1TB SN850 as my OS drive.

Love the p31. Super cool compared to other gen3s. I want the p41 but have the 980 pro. Must resist.
