  1. 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.
  2. Intel Optane 900P vs Samsung 950 PRO

    thank you guys
  3. 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?
  4. 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?
  5. Will I see any performance improvements from upgrading my Samsung 950 PRO to a new Optane 900P? My usage is gaming and java development.
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. I will try it if you say to do it. I cloned the drive using samsung data migration tool. that tool should clone the entire drive no problem, it should not affect performance. your suggestion is to format the drive? thanks!!!
  11. no, this is the strange things. the detection phases requires the same time, more or less. the longer time is experienced in windows loading (I have a lot of programs at start). in any case with the same software corsair force gt is faster to load, the windows installation is the same since I cloned the corsair force gt installation on the samsung drive. very strange...
  12. this is my ATTO, it's not bad at all but it boots slow:
  13. Hi, my atto/crystal disk mark benchmark are fine, I can read 2500MB/sec and write 1500MB/sec but the boot time are slower on my Samsung 950 PRO SSD than on my older Corsair Force GT 240GB. How this could be possible? I don't expected too much improvements but worse boot performance neither.
  14. Drivers and cables are OK, firmware is the latest available. Drive is set in ahci mode and connected to the Intel controller. It seems that my corsair force GT 240 is faster than my 850 EVO in the 4k test.
