The Samsung 970 PRO IIRC.

 

What do you need such fast storage for? Also, why do you want a Samsung drive?

I'm surprised with every one claiming it's the 970 Evo as well, if we're to consider the very fastest and most reliable of all it's obviously the Intel Optane 905P then again it's a full PCI-e card rather than M.2

But the read and write speeds for M.2 are faster than the Optane? Im confused now haha

The 970 isn't worth the price increase. My 500gb only did sound 285% on userbenchmark. My sx8200 pro 1 tb does over 400%. I think the best priced NVME drives are the EX950s and SX8200 Pros. I doubt you'll find anything cheaper that performs like they do.. 

 

The 970 EVO is not worth it. Based on price that is. You can get these two (EX and SX) for less than $200 but not the 970 Evo pro. 

 

Unless you have a specific need for the 970 pro, it's overpriced.. 

 

Other great options are the EX920s, BPX Pro, Sabret Rocket, and Silicon Power P34A80 1tb at $144 on Amazon is the best deal. BPX PRO, SABRET and the SP drive all use the Phison E12. They are all on par with each other but I think BPX has the best software to update firmware. For $144 (P34A80 ) I wouldn't get anything else.

For daily use a 970 EVO is pointless. I have one in one of my computers and a SATA SSD in the other.

For gaming only modded open world games and simulators that you can add content to benefit from it. For the non modified games I have tested the load times are about the same as SATA SSD. All I use my 970 EVO for is eliminating i/o stutter.

 

When interacting with slower drives the speed is about the same as SATA SSD.

 

I recommend that if you don't have a specific application that can benefit from the speed, go with the largest SATA you can afford. Having everything on an SSD is fastest way to go.

If you want the fastest drive on the market with everything taken into consideration, that's the Optane 905P. If you want your wallet to become more of a load on you, you can also go for a Samsung 970 series SSD.
