  1. Samsung 860 PRO SSD Review Discussion

    if they don't lower the price per GB I don't understand what they improved. it seems a good upgrade for samsung but not for customers.
  2. Samsung 860 PRO SSD Review Discussion

    I see pretty indentical performance over 850 PRO, so what's the point of this drive? Same performance with newer label. Why?
  3. New Samsung 850 and new Samsung 860

    I tought that the 850 was a cheaper 850EVO to replace the 750. If this is not the case I think that the 850EVO has no sense anymore. Am I wrong? Will 850EVO be discontinued in favour of the 850?
  4. New Samsung 850 and new Samsung 860

    is there some advantages in more layers?
  5. New Samsung 850 and new Samsung 860

    Please refresh my mind. 850 EVO uses TLC-VNAND 850 PRO uses MLC-VNAND if this is right, what's the difference between the 850 EVO and the 850?
  6. New Samsung 850 and new Samsung 860

    some more news on toms,5322.html#xtor=RSS-100 but still not understand the difference between the 850 and the 850 EVO.
  7. Intel Optane 900P vs Samsung 950 PRO

    thank you guys
  8. Intel Optane 900P vs Samsung 950 PRO

    I think that same. My tasks are not I/O bound but the interesting thing is that Intel is advertising optane as something good for players. How this could be good for players? Are games I/O bound?
  9. New Samsung 850 and new Samsung 860

    Regarding the 860, what is the difference from VNAND 3bit TLC used in the 850 EVO and the QLC used in the 860?
  10. Will I see any performance improvements from upgrading my Samsung 950 PRO to a new Optane 900P? My usage is gaming and java development.
  11. Toms published a news of the new Samsung 850 and the new Samsung 860...,35675.html is there some rumors on it? What's the poin of the new 850? What are the new "features" of the 860?
  12. Hi, do you think that this upgrade has some sense? How much faster is the 960PRO over the 950PRO? I know that it depends on the application but for some gaming, some videoediting, and some coding, will I see the difference?
  13. Just my two cents on my latest upgrade. at the end I bought a Samsung 950 PRO 512GB for software and OS and a Samsung 850 EVO 1TB for games. (photos and videos still on 2TB HDD) The biggest improvements was on the 850 EVO, games now are another story than when installed on HDD. The 950PRO doesn't bringed any performance improvements on my rig, before the 950 PRO I had a Corsair Force GT240GB used for the OS and Software and I see no improvements at all. Boot time are nearly identical, load software are nearly identical, working with VM are nearly identical. 950PRO is a pure waste of money, there is no real life area where this drive is faster than a normal SSD if not on benchmarks. This drive can be good on a server but this is not a server drive, for a desktop or a workstation this drive is unuseful.
  14. I have done a fresh install once backed up the old one. Before installing with a fresh install I have done a secure erase with magician software from samsung. IOPS remains the same and the boot time is slower than my SATA SSDs.
