Should I have greeted this article with more excitement? Or are samsung just making a normal SSD with a normal price in a slightly different way that doesn't matter to anyone?
While the improvements made over previous generations of Samsung SSDs is slight, bear in mind that SSDs are limited by the SATA interface.
There is also the fact that peak performance is found in all the drives, including the 128GB variant which is impressive as the 128GBs are usually if not always the lower performer.
Hopefully we will see a m.2 drove or PCI-E SSD to really see how much performance gain there is. Alongside that there is also power saving and it opens the possibility of a future >1TB SSD.
When we see this in GPUs things will get interesting...
