Yo where's my SATA RAID trophy at
A testament to intelligent SLC caching and controller firmware despite using Micron 32-layer 384-Gbit 3D NAND. Interesting, especially looking back at the Samsung 850 Evo scores.
How you liking that SN750 bro I also got one recently.
I like mine. Didn't feel like buying a 970 evo/pro... or sell one of my kidneys for an Intel 905p.
Cost wise it's pretty down there imo, this 1 TB heatsinked one was like $130 from WD before Christmas. It's like, snappy and stuff. Samsung has been good but they have some other players finally on/near parity on cost and performance.
The 970 evo usually sports like a $30-$40 premium over here over the SN750 or equivalent competitors. I mean... based on the benchmarks I've seen, the 970 evo is definitely faster in some applications, but not enough to warrant the premium.
What are your temps at? Mine was hitting 70+ during the bench. It idles at 50 degrees. My random numbers seem low.
I swear my system seems snappier moving from the SX8200 Pro. I like the WD Dashboard, as well.
Honestly didn't even check. I'll have to run the tests again and keep an eye out for the temps.
That being said, the nand flash is best when its at higher temps. It's just the controller that hates the heat.
Dayum, broke 200MB on that random
Here you go. Mine doesn't have a heatsink. Although... disclaimer... it's housed behind a metal bracket on the Asus Z-390-E Strix board which has a thermal pad attached to the drive too. Dunno if that would make it worse or better.
Hmm, I'll have to try the one that came with my Aorus Z390 board. I didn't use it.
I also noticed that if I cranked my GPU fan speed to max, it lowers the SSD temps down by a few degrees. Since the m.2 slot on my board is above the 1st pci-e x16 slot so the air coming from the gpu heatsink hits the mobo pcb and pushes air through the m.2 area.
Like under benchmark load, it was doing 43 degrees.
