...I'm in agreement...BUT, for people who don't know what the 970 EVO is...they may think it's NVMe PCIe (slot). So it's just additional clarity I guess.

It is NVMe PCIe M.2 slot. Are you talking about an AIC card?

I'm saying "NVMe" is the communication protocol, it alone doesn't dictate what physical interface to use.

And those who are not familiar with 970 Evo, one could think it's available in the form of a PCIe card.

(I see that you just updated your original response of "It is NVMe.")

Why are people downvoting this? This is historical low, and is one of the top SSDs. Really the only thing better than it is the Sabrent Rocket 4.0 which is just an insane beast. When it comes to Samsung SSDs this is top shelf stuff. Am I missing something?

Review / comparison to the SX8200:


I think in summary. if you're going for the 970 Evo Plus...and paying $185 more...you likely need [more justification(s)] / [to know your exact workload(s)] that really make use of the advantages.

Dude you do this in every pc thread. You yourself don't know what you are talking about, then when someone points it out, you go back and post links and be like no I meant this which is completely different from your original post.

They didn't point it out... every card is an add in card if you have to add it (in my book). (Otherwise, why would I point out NVMe isn't definitive enough? - in my original post - If someone responded after my post, and I went back to edit it, that edited post would have an edited counter. The edited counter would not show up for that post if that post is the last one in the thread. i.e. the original post from me was the last post in the thread when I added additional clarification of what I meant, not because someone else responded or in your words "pointed out")

Though, I'll admit that what I didn't know is that it could be referred to as HHHL.

(Providing link is only to get ahead of the "do you have a reference?" kind of response)


p.s. I'm also ok with you thinking I don't know what I'm talking about...no incentive in convincing you of what I do / do not know. Maybe I just like to bug the hell out of some of you.

Yes. Thanks for updating the title.

(Those of us who knows, knows... others, do not. For example, if I were to buy a new wheelset for a road bike, the wheelset would, ideally, state if it's clincher or not, regardless of whether there's other variance. )

I'm looking for a 2.5" SSD. I can't careless if it's called a "Samsung 997" or "Porsche Bravia" or in this case a "Samsung 970 Evo Plus". I don't go learn all the manufacturer's names for products I don't need. I just care that it's 2.5" and it's SSD.

So thanks for updating the title!

And to whoever posted NVMe tells you is M.2... NVMe doesn't just work on M.2, NVMe can also work on SAS or PCIe. M.2 is just one connector type.

Yea, I have no idea what a good price is for the Evo, but it's hard to justify the premium over the XPG. Very few will notice any difference between the two.
