PCI Express 4 NVMe Drive Roundup



With the incredible bandwidth available on the PCI Express 4.0 specification we felt it was time to look at a few drives and see how the Corsair MP600 Gigabyte Aorus Sabrent Rocket Seagate FireCuda 520 and Patriot Viper VP4100 performed

It's so nice to see Patriot back. IDK where they went for so long, but their new range (RAM etc) is cheap yet very pretty.

Cheers Guv, I shall watch the vid later in bed

That Corsair box just won't give up. Could you lower the volume for OC3D intro Tom? It is deafening in most of your videos.

Lol Always gets me when I watch one of his vids in the front room with the surround sound & sub, scares the shizers out of the neighbours

Why is no one addressing the actual performance of NVME drives? It doesn't matter that it can do 5000 MB a second sequential. Sequential doesn't matter at all. The most important things are IOPS, Low Queue Depth, sustained write and 4K performance. 970 Pro and especially 905p although on paper "slower" and PCIe Gen. 3 are demolishing these drives in pretty much every task.

Tom.

The blue Patriot. Does it have chips on it that say Phison per chance?

I bought two Pioneer drives and they're actually Phison which are blue.

Chances are Patriot are buying them like that.

They all have a Phison controller. That is why they all perform roughly the same. Samsung is releasing their own controller soon, and it should be much faster.

Hot

I'm glad to see the temps these drives run at, even at idle. I thought mine was super hot running between 50 - 60c, but apparently not.
