This or crucial P1 for 84ish from Apusauction?
IMHO, I would much prefer to purchase from Futu/ShoppingExpress instead of Apus/ShoppingSquare.
is it cos Apu is selling it?
Crucial P1 500GB is at $79.
0ver $91 with shipping
Should the title reference NVME?
Yes it is an NVME drive.
If you have a shipping service available (I used MyUS), Amazon US has the Sabrent Rocket 512GB NVME drive for US$49.99
After shipping it won’t be as cheap as this 660p, but it’s a lot faster.
QLC based 🤮
lasts 5 years, more than enough for the discounted price
is the crucial p1 tic, qlc or mlc can't find online
It is QLC with a dynamic SLC cache.
There is a deal for one here https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/467315
This won’t work on a Ryzen setup will it?
If your board has a NVMe capable M.2 slot it should be fine..
Sweet. Apparently on my board it won’t disable any data channels, only the second pcie channel which I’d never use anyway. It’ll be a good scratch disk for adobe.
Be very careful guys! This ssd's test results are extremely bad once it runs out of its Slc cache, that's due to its QLC.
You should re-read that review for use cases to make it run out of SLC cache. https://www.anandtech.com/show/13078/the-intel-ssd-660p-ssd-...
Please don't think that NVME means it's a fast drive, I'd take an older SATA MLC disk over this any day of the week….
Removing a speed limiter from a Yaris doesn't mean it will do 300KM/h…
It's faster than any other brand including samsung for 1Q1T reads - which was what matters most for speed in normal desktop/gaming use. QLC though so will throttle after around 40gig sequential write, don't know how often people transfer that much in one go, only time I have was restoring steam backups.
Nowadays, is it suitable to use an nvme m2 as your only drive for os and storage/games/files etc?
