Samsung 970 Pro and Evo

Hello guys,
I am looking forward to the next version 2280 M.2 SSD. I am very interested in the past versions like Samsung 960 Pro and Evo but I think I might wait on this new one, the Samsung 970 Pro or Evo. I am not to sure when they will be out on the market though. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

It will make little difference. That is, at the office we shop for SSDs but don't over analyze the models.

The 2280 M.2 is just another form factor and connection. In my view, just another form and nothing new at all.

Games and Flight Simulators

Well actually it's an NVMe SSD drive that I'm looking in to, so that I can play games and run 2 flight simulators that take a couple of minutes. Plus to speed up my boot time, which takes about 2-3 minutes.

SSD can be amazing.

We had a 2006 Dell e1505 Inspiron with 1GB RAM, CoreDuo and standard SSD. Windows 10 could boot from cold and get a web page showing in 35 seconds.

This is why I think for most of us the change from SATA with SSD to M2 won't make a big diff.

At 2 to 3 minutes my bet is this is on HDD.

Yes, It's on an old hdd...I think it's an Toshiba and it's some long name.

I'll guess

Joe User would not see any difference between a sata3 ssd and a M.2 ssd for the stuff they run.

Yes benchmarks will show a difference.

I'd have to think twice about paying a premium for the M.2 unit.

If you want the best of the best for bragging rights and money is no object go for the M.2 unit.

Let's simplify this.

In reply to: I'm really interested

"NVMe M.2 SSD" is just another form factor of SSD drives. To get laptops thinner, this helps. There is no Earth shattering gain here. And the only reason I need to know about NVMe M.2 SSD drives. is to be able to order and fit in the drive.

Yes, there are folk that will read the benchmarks but given that 2006 Dell which was a dinosaur of a laptop and it's 35 second cold boot to a web result even if it had NVMe M.2 SSD I doubt it would make much difference.

The market thrives on marketing items like this. Some ask why we don't shut up and let the masses be fleeced.

Good for you

Learn about the different parts.
How things function.
The buzz words.

That way the machine won't be a mystery to you.
