    Gave up my 2 year old tech Samsung 960 Pro 1TB ( very favorable sell )

    This went into my new build.

    Impressed.

    You need to benchmark that drive at 75% filled, that way. You will know exactly what it can do when
    it is loaded down. No one keeps a drive at 5%.

    I smell something, but it smells more like B.S. than fried chicken too. I have two m.2 drives and one ssd
    inside my pc, and all of them are over 75% full. Why did you buy the m.2 drive, just so you could boot into windows faster?

    Show us the results when you get about 50% full. Throw some junk data on there, benchmark it,
    show us the results, then delete it.

    Yeah, I mean, that's just really weird that you would think people are lying about how full they keep their SSD boot drives. Honestly, it's bizarre so much so I don't even know how to respond other than to just say, what a weird comment. I never knew there were actually people out there that policed this type of issue.

    For that comment to even work you would have to know everything about me which you don't. I have a 1TB Sandisk Ultra SSD that all my current games go onto along with my favorite MP3's and Apps. If you want to go back thru all my posts here on HardOCP you will see I mention where I sold a 1tb Samsung Pro NVMe because I never filled it up. Which is true. I never did. I found myself constantly being lazy and downloading to it 9/10 times during ownership of that drive, I used it as static storage until I got around to moving those files over to mechanical. I have Google Fiber .. I download like ... really really fast.

    Honestly man, I wouldn't go around saying weird shit like this hahah ...

    Man, look, I'm ok with you being the "BS kinda guy" That's ok with me. So sure, it's all BS, I lied, it's faked. I'll go along with you on that the drive will lose all it's performance at 50% capacity. You win, :) I'll email Samsung tomorrow and complain on your behalf. I'll explain to them this forum exchange and how I got in trouble for benchmarking their new 970 Pro 512GB NVMe SSD and that they need to take measures to keep people like me from being bullied on forum posts. That they need to warn the public ahead of time that their drives suffer serious performance loss at 50% capacity. I mean, for you to call me out, you are expecting serious performance loss right? Do you have anything to add to Samsung when I contact them? Let me know. Let's fix this problem right now! I'm with you man. The weird suspicious guy and the BS SSD owner. What a team we will make.

    Let's you and I join forces and stamp out this ... SSD misuse, this injustice against these memory chips. Surely there are other offenders out there besides me. I can't be the only one. I really want your help Brother. We should Skype!?

    I think Auburn will only be pleased if you just delete your account for misleading us all so much!

    wtf

    I snagged an open box that only cost me $159, so still pretty excited about that.

    For anyone that hasn't made the NVMe upgrade, do it. It's extremely noticeable. 5x to 6x faster over the typical Sata6 SSD situation. I tell everyone to upgrade 4 things. The most important upgrades. Your chair, your monitor, your video card and your boot drive.

    Good luck out there!

    Policing, not at all. Just saying what I personally think. That is okay in this forum, is it not?
    You are proud of your drive, so proud in fact, that you had to share your benchmarks at 5%
    full with us. That tells m.2 users nothing, but what it can do dang near empty.

    What we want to know, is what it can do at 70 to 75% full. We need to know if it is worth
    buying or not.

    I've been caught at 5% guys, I'm definitely going down big time for this one.

    All fun aside, no, to answer your question, performance does not degrade at 75%. You can research this yourself. If I ever get these, I'll let you know.

    Reference at 0% full. Are you even keeping up with this thread at all?

    I just want to know what these drives will do when 70% full.

    So tell me, what are you enjoying so well? Do you think that you and one other person are
    the only people in this whole wide world that owns a m.2 drive?

    I also enjoy mine as well, but a 90 dollar drive, that dang near beats the latest and the greatest.
    I can deal with that.

    My drive drops off a little at 70%, but not so bad, as
    that it really bothers me, so. The next time you reply
    to a question in a forum. Make sure you are trying to help,
    rather than being a smart ass, as that does not really help
    does it? Tell me, why exactly did you post on this thread for?

    I have the 1TB flavor also. But if you look at actual real world benchmarks of app and game loading time, not a lot changes from ssd to nvme. hdd => ssd huge jump. ssd => nvme very incremental. I am curious where storage will go after nvme. The CPU already can't crunch 3.5GB/s incoming.

    This thread is about the 970 Pros. Why are you posting crap about lesser drives?
    Don’t make me bust out the Optane screenshots.

    The long term goal - it will be directly addressable nonvolatile storage, like the Optane direction. I don't know if there will be more intermediate protocols / techs, but that's what we want. Essentially, the elimination of one tier of storage and the associated required data movement.

    the samsung Pro's are MLC based so don't have the issue with more than 75% full

    this happens on TLC/QLC based SSDs (like samsung evo's and just about any other SSD now unless they state they are using MLC)as they norm have an SLC cache on them that makes them fast until you write to much in one go or get near full

    Yeah I heard the 970 Pro 1TB's were a bit faster over the 512GB variant
