I'd get a 1TB Intel 660p for $115.

 

Unless you are content creating, you don't need NVMe but that Intel is a great price.

They look very similar in terms of performance. Samsung disks are very reliable.

 

I would say to let the prices decide for you.

I personnaly managed to buy a $100 Crucial 500MB drive and I'm glad with it. I was about to buy a samsung before seeing this offer.

No dude that thing is 63% slower in reading speeds compared to the SX8200 Pro 512gb

May want to do some research in just what you need NVMe speeds for, and how they work.

If research was done then OP would have attacked the 660p with it being an unproven QLC product.

I prefer the HO EX920/950 if that's cheaper, but otherwise get the SX8200 Pro. Their hardware and speeds are similar.

 

the Pilot only has 3 years of warranty and doesnt have official endurance rating at all (set aside whether you should trust one). The 970 Pro is expensive but advantages aren't prominent.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

So the SX8200 Pro?

Thank you I’ve been fighting between these three because of the research I’ve done
