Hey I'm about to upgrade my 500gb SSD on my Razer Blade 15, and I've been thinking about getting an Intel 660p


Linus covered it in his video, but wasn't too impressed, but i beliveve that such a card would be perfect for me. I don't keep 2tb of anything ever on my Laptop, and i only use it for steam+etc launcher games, some occasional movies that, but never keep them there for storage.


As I understood the Intel 660p M2. storage is good if you don't transfer too large files, as the cache fills up, and there's less room for cache the less space on the SSD is.


By my calculations i'd be sitting around 1tb - MAXIMUM 1,5 TB storage of games, etc. So a 2tb Intel 660P would fit nicely.


Have I understood this correctly?, and would the Intel even fit my RB 15?

That's the worst SSD you can get as it has QLC NAND which has the least performance vs MLC and TLC NAND Memory

All in all it looks pretty good on the random test damnright average if not anything else, It's only shit when it's full, but i never plan to fill it, but i do need at least 1TB of storage, and I'm not gonna get a SATA drive for a lot more, since filling up them isn't an option either.
