I agree that the newer batch is better in general, but my point was so far no one that I've seen has ever provided any evidence the 2TB one...
11/05/2022 - 19:26
Speed drop with new batch is widely believed to be because of change to 512Gb 128L NAND instead of 256Gb 92L NAND on old, rather than...

There's no such thing as the SN870 AFAIK. Do you mean the SN770? If so it's DRAM0less although does have quite good performance especially...

Had a similar thing where I saw very low prices on CamelCamelCamel but couldn't find it on Amazon 1-2 months ago. IIRC happened more than...

MLC or DLC is better than TLC but both devices are TLC. Samsung calls their TLC as 3-bit MLC which while not technically wrong, is...

I wouldn't take what's happening with the SATA line to mean much for these. And note that the 970 EVO is also not the same thing as this...
10/05/2022 - 18:11
Once issue is is that the 970 Pro seems to have been MLCs last hurrah on the consumer side. And since it's not 2018 or even 2020 I would...

A lot of customer facing website do maintenance overnight although 10pm is too early. More likely 2-3am. Anyway this deal was popular...

While I agree with the general idea, where can you get the 970 Evo Plus 2TB slightly cheaper? Cheapest seems to be around $295 at the...
31/03/2022 - 18:27
$20/TB seems unlikely. I don't live in Australia so can't be bothered doing the calculations but AFAIK cheapest tended to be US$190 before...

I wouldn't agree the Aorus 7000 is technically better. The E18 is a great controller for performance, but it's limited when paired with the...

I don't know who this Youtuber is, but an artificial aging test is IMO the sort of thing very hard to get right. And notably this is the...

Actually the P5 Plus uses Micron's 176L TLC flash just like the better E18 drives and was released in August or something last year. Note...
22/02/2022 - 03:55
Two levels isn't that weird with a dynamic SLC cache especially a large but not full one. One is direct to TLC, one is when the SSD has to...
22/02/2022 - 03:40
But why do you only care about sequentials? For most people the 4k and other random and aspects of controller performance arguably matters...
22/02/2022 - 02:54
Yeah the Aorus is one of those old E16 + Kioxia 96L drives. It's arguably worse or at best not much better than a decent gen 3 drive like...
22/02/2022 - 02:49
The LTT tier list is IMO a little questionable. For example it makes no consideration of size, yet size can actually make quite a big...

While the NAND chips can sometimes get a little hot, the controller tends to be the real problem part. But as with most modern consumer...
16/02/2022 - 18:32
That isn't really a difference between Pro and non Pro though. However the PS5 requires gen 4, so it's a moot point if you're talking about...
16/02/2022 - 18:32
No one knows. Some people say there may be an increase, but it remains unclear how much this is going to affect things especially since...
16/02/2022 - 00:05
I'd chose the 970 Plus over the MP600 Core. Yes the MP600 Core has better sequentials but it's worse in nearly every other way especially...

Might want to consider the Crucial P5 Plus. Lacks a heatink but it's $461.00...
03/02/2022 - 15:22
It's complicated. The P31 uses a hybrid SLC cache (dynamic + static) so when empty something between 166 - 184GB...
