Crazy speeds compared to other generations, but also the best Gen 4 I've used.


Poor

Upgraded from a 970 Evo Plus and the performance difference is so drastic. Love this thing.


Average

2 years ago.

Probably the best speed on the market for an NVME ssd right now, but is missing "pro" features that consumers desire on Samsung's "pro" series. It is also priced exorbitantly. Probably avoid and just get a slightly slower but half the price ssd.
