The price for the 1TB model is terrible when you look at the specs and then compare it to the 1TB Samsung which does a hell of a lot more read/writes for the exact same price of £349.99 -

Intel 1TB

- Read Speed: 1800MB/s
- Write Speed: 560MB/s

Samsung 1TB

- Read Speed: 3000MB/s
- Write Speed: 1150MB/s

On boards like the Sabertooth or Formula you install it behind a little panel so the colour isn't an issue as you will never see it

Those numbers never really mean anything though. What's more important is the 4k depth speeds as that is where the ssds will operate 90% of the time.

Actually they have the same amount of numbers for reads.. one is just a larger set

Tbh though I don't even then think people would notice the difference in these speeds except in maybe large file transfers. Just my thinking, never actually used one
