When windows 10 boots, what size are the chunks of data it reads?

 

Like on the Atto graphs in this comparison:

https://www.gamecrate.com/benchmarking-samsung-860-evo-860-pro-ssds/17952

 

The Pro reads big chunks a little better and the EVO reads little chunks better.  Not sure if I'm understanding this correctly. 

In theory, which of these two SSD would be a "better" Win 10 boot drive and why?  Or does it not matter, windows boot files are evenly all different sizes?

Upon booting, windows only really loads drivers and core files, which are all pretty small. Although I doubt the boot time would be much different between the two. 

 

However, upon usage it depends on what you're doing. 

 

Honestly, the pro is the better drive, but I highly.... highly doubt you'd notice a difference between the two.

the big differnce is the pro is mlc, which mainly helps with writes, which really won't matter here. If you want more speed get a nvme drive.

 

Testing in a vm shows average reads of about 16kb

 

Get the evo really, you don't need the endurance of the pro.

 

And you won't notice the difference in boot times.

16kb average, interesting.  That's exactly what I wanted to know, thanks.    Definitely gonna get the EVO the read differences are tiny and a boot drive doesn't need that much endurance.

what is the rest of the system? Id just have one large ssd instead of a separate boot ssd.
