SSD speeds? I am confusion!!

Hey All,

I am a little confused with SSD speeds... I am looking at 2 SSD's, both have read speeds of around 550MB/s and write speed of 520MB/s but under the data transfer rate one has 6 Gbps and the other has 750 Mbps?

What is the difference between these speeds?

If I had to guess I'd say the data transfer rate is how fast the drive can move files between folders one it has already been wrotten to the drive.. and that as a gamer the read and write speed are more important?

Current Setup: Phanteks Enthoo Pro M Window Edition - i9 10850k - ASUS ROG Strix Z-490-F gaming mother board - 32gb Corsair Vengence pro RGB 3600mhz - Gigabyte Vision OC 3070 - 500gb 970 EVO M.2 - 250gb Sandisk M.2 - 250gb 850 EVO - 500gb and 1TB WD blue SSD - 1TB Seagate Barracuda - Corsair RM850x - Asus PG279 27" 165hz - Samsung 32" 4k - Glorious Model-O mouse - Corsair K70 RGB Keyboard - Logitech Z-5500 speakers - Blue Snowball mic.

IOPS Input/Output Operations Per Second are actually more important, all sata ssd's will hit a wall at around 500mb/s because of the sata interface.
If you are looking for faster speeds you need to get m.2 nvme ssds.

If you want good SSD Crucial MX500 or Samsung 860 Evo at any size you need. They are so good that the rest of the models are not worth buying.
Turbos on an engine is God's way of telling you it ain't got enough cylinders.
