Seem like slightly faster than other NVMe SSD. When I have some time, I will compare it with P31 gold NVMe m.2 500g

best nvme pcie 3.0 ssd for games

If you have the PCI-E lanes to support it... This is hilariously potent. Read/writes out of this world, that only workstations would ever truly find useful, if even that. For games, you'll never worry about load times again.

Super fast

As good as it is expensive; costs a decent ~200€, but it is more than just insanely fast, probably among the fastest SSDs using PCIe 3.0. Downloading Samsung Magician software is recommended, it probably helps operating the device better?
