Hello good people,

 

if i were to buy a PCIe 4.0 SSD, which ones can i choose from?

 

The ones i know of:

Sabrent Rocket 4.0

Samsung 980 Pro

Corsair MP600

Gigabyte Aorus NVMe Gen4

Seagate Firecuda 520

 

Are there any more i don't know of yet? (WD, ADATA, etc...)

Are there significant differences or is it safe to say go for the cheapest at said capacity if i were to buy one?

 

Disclaimer: I'll not buy any of these, so i don't need a discussion if i need one or not for my needs and workloads. Just interested what all the options are out there.

I mean those are pretty much the ones that most people buy. Really isnt a point in buying a super low end PCIE 4 SSD o.o

I mean IS there really a low-end PCIe 4.0 SSD? Aren't they pretty much all the same?

could probably find a $20 2tb one off of ebay, although if you tried using it, it will probably just explode upon use

only kind of SUPER low end ones would be the knock off sorta works sorta notta works kind of ssd

There are differences, Quality, speeds, controller, Thermals.  Samsung tends to be the Best balance of Speed and reliability, Corsair just rebrands all their crap, Think WD has a 4.0 Drive as well.

 

Generally its all about Balancing out what exactly you need and getting the best one for that. If you need the Fastest speeds AND reliablity, id go with the samsung one if you just need the best quality ones.

 

Sabrent is a good budget option, they tend to be slower, but generally a good chunk lower in price too

being dramless is not as important in pcie ssds because they can use system ram as cache 

if it was useful give it a like :) btw if your into linux pay a visit here  and i will be thankful if you send me an opinion here

Thanks, i didn't even know the SSD Tiel list existed! :D

But it doesn't talk about what SSD is PCIe 4.0 at all from what i see. Could be a little dangerous imo because with some SSDs you may not get the full speed if you don't have the right mobo/CPU.

if I remeber right the tier A was called ultra high end (pci e 4.0) or something. can not remember. Have to contact Vexicus about this.

There are a few SSDs in Tier A that are just PCIe 3.0, like the Samsung 970 pro.
