I thought I would add a NVMe drive to my PC and get some speed.
Initially I thought I would get this drive from PBTech but there were out of stock.
So the guy recommended this one which is cheaper
Then I started to read up on these drives and discovered that the Intel and Crucial are the first of the QLC flash drives which use caching technology to increase write speed but when the cache is full speed drops off dramatically (relative).
More research and it would seem a much better choice would be this
even though it's twice the price.
The reviews say
Samsung’s 970 EVO Plus can dish out up to 3.5GB/s of sequential read performance and up to a staggering 3.3GB/s write. It also delivers up to 620,000/560,000 random read/write IOPS.
I don't think I need 1TB of storage but the speed of the Samsung is quite attractive. It uses TLC V-NAND versus QLC in the Crucial.
Just wondering what folks think about the new generation NVMe drives and whether it's better to go for greater speed versus lower cost and potential shorter life?
