Hey

So I bought new PC parts like 2 weeks ago, and all is well. Problem is I bought 2x250 EVO 850 in raid 0 cause hey speed is fun...

Well since I've been off the PC market for a while I thought this would be a pretty fast storage setup, but then ofcourse after I've built my PC I figure out there is something new. M.2 SSD.

So I thought I would find a way to justifiy buying this beast, so I've started downloading alot of games, and my drives are already starting to fill up, so I need more space soon I guess, but is it really worth it?

Regards, Noiz
 
+Noiz1212 I own both the Samsung 950 Pro and the Intel 750. You will see no gaming performance difference of the 950 Pro over a Samsung 850 EVO. With the two new capacities of Samsung drives just listed for preorder (link below) I suspect the Samsung 950 Pro 1TB will be announced soon. The 950 Pro will only give you bragging rights, but from my own experience, I only see the performance differences in my labs, not in gaming or application launches.

Samsung 850 EVO M.2 1TB - Please discuss

If you really want the ultimate bragging rights, consider the Pro version of the Micron 9100 Maxx. The Pro version just has less overprovisioning than the Maxx.

Well, I guess I'll hold on for now, but if there is a sale of some sort, I'm jumping on it, cause ye it's just fun to have, also I'll need more space soon, buying another Sata based SSD is just plain boring.
