The arrival of the solid-state drive (SSD) has revolutionised the speed at which modern PCs perform common tasks. This is because SSDs have no moving parts, compared to larger, bulkier mechanical drives, thus they store information on memory chips. This means that accesses, reads and writes are many, many times faster

Solid-state drives (SSDs) are fast becoming the must-have PC components of 2010. Serving as primary storage space for high-end computers, SSD's super-fast transfer rates and near-instant accesses offer genuine advantages over traditional spindle-based magnetic drives.

A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony.

512GB Samsung 970 PRO, M.2 (2280) PCIe 3.0 (x4) NVMe SSD, Phoenix, MLC V-NAND, 3500MB/s Read, 2300MB/s Write, 370k/500k is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable speed & so tiny Bought this for the Gigabyte Designare EX X299 for my new build. Insane speed. Glad we're getting back to parallel data lanes over serial. That said, and I'll be honest, having used a Revodrive X2 for the past 7 years, I haven't quite managed to see any significant "real-world" difference with app loading and windows booting etc, but numbers speak for themselves (see attached photo - 970 Pro on left, Revodrive in middle, normal WD Gold 2TB HDD on right). What amazes me is the size of the thing; it's minuscule. It tops out at 3600MB/s sequential read when the 970 Pro is plugged into an NVMe running off CPU PCIe lanes. You may find it slightly lower (3250MB/s) when it is plugged into an NVMe port which shares SATA/chipset lanes from my own evidence. However, Crystalmark didn't show a lot of difference in the 7 other tests, including all read tests, so the non-HEDT crew don't have to worry. Very easy to install, with windows 10 and an up to date motherboard its just.... there... no additional drivers required. The ARM controller does get hot though - I would recommend a heatsink (which are widely available for NVMe drives) to prevent it throttling under heavy loading. Good pricing considering it's top-of-the-range and blistering speed. Keen to see more from the Samsung 970 range - 110mm 4TB version?
